Here's a couple of close ups. Sorry they're not that great. Not sure why one turned out a different color. Picture taking is not my expertise.
Here's a project I started. It's from the Cross -Eyed Cricket "Be Ye Thankful " pattern that I won from Jolene. I am planning on making it into a basket top , but I have also thought about making it into a top for a shaker box. Not sure yet.
Here's a little closer look.
Alex took this picture yesterday of a tree here in town. There was a big stink raised here about the cutting down of some of the older trees. Many people had to cut down trees that were 50 or more years old. This resident protested and you can see how he chose to express himself. He had someone make this huge meat cleaver. At the bottom of the tree there are logs from the tree that he painted red to look like the tree was bleeding. This wasn't a Halloween prank , the tree has been like this for quite some time. From what I gather, he won his case, but left the tree this way to remind the city of what they were trying to accomplish didn't entirely work. That clever would make Paul Bunyun's day wouldn't it? I'll try to get a better picture of this later on.
I enjoyed reading everyone's comments yesterday. I had a feeling after posting about the name change of the hamster ,that someone might think he died! Sure enough Sadie had commented that she just knew that I was going to say he did. Didn't mean to give you a fright! Sorry ! The pet store said that they would buy back the babies IF Cheerio was pregnant when the sold her to us. Alex is wanting to raise them ,but I don't know. Five or so could turn into 30 or 40 pretty quick. I was starting to think that the names were starting to go along the snackfood line myself, and J Rae's comment cracked me up. Alex said that he was already thinking of naming one of them Twinkie! Kids are funny aren't they?
