I know it's not 'Talk Like a Pirate' day any longer but look at this......

We caught one on Sunday and relocated him.  Even though we hadn't really seen two at a time, we thought maybe there was a Mrs. Chippy so we set the trap again.  They are very good at reaching in the trap and grabbing what they want, then staying on the outside while the trap closes.  Stinkers. 

Over the weekend I finished this wall hanging.  I was going to try to take some new pictures as the red isn't really that red.  It's kind of drab out today so, instead of delaying, I'll post the best of the lot.  I need to get some backing fabric then off to the long arm quilter. 

This is my first post since changing to the new post editor.  While picture uploading went better it was still a challenge to move the pictures to where I wanted them and I still accidentally deleted one.  I'm sure it will be better in the long run.  I'll post some stitchy pictures soon. 

Until then, I'm off.....

  1. Those cute little fellers can be quite destructive when they want to be... better relocated than cat food.(although, our two cats find great fun around the chippy hole.
    Be always in stitches.

  2. Hi Pam, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. Yes, you are welcome to use my picture of Thomas, with credit - thank you for asking first, I appreciate it :) I'd better not tell him he's got a fan club though, he'll get big-headed LOL!

    It's nice to find your blog too - I don't do the Blogger follower thing as I'm on WordPress, but I'll add you to my Google Reader so I can get your updates and follow you that way.


  3. You have your chipmunks, we have our groundhogs--ugh!! We've caught one so far this year, but there are other family members lurking around in the woods behind our house...

    Love your nautical/patriotic quilt, Pam. It's really gorgeous :)

  4. I love chipmunks! Unfortunately most of them have relocated because of our 2 cats. We have tons of squirrels in our yard and DH puts out whole ears of corn for them all winter. I know some people think squirrels are pests but we love their antics and if we feed them corn, they are more liable to leave the bird seed alone. Oh, and we also give them sunflower seeds. Doesn't bother us a bit if our neighbors think we are nuts!

  5. So the adventure continues! Any chance that it's just Chippy I returned?

    The quilt looks great!
