Brown

Just recently I showed a grey little squirrel napping in the tree. If you want to see what a tiny little squirrel looks like, look here:

He was jumping in our yard this morning, all brown and new and so tiny, the tail was maybe 4" and so was the rest of him when he run across the driveway, stretching himself.


I like brown colours a lot, and so I happened to choose these fabrics when shopping with Kaija in Turku on Saturday.


The flannels are for the backing and the bottom brown for the binding and sashings of my scrappy star quilt. I hope to be able to start cutting soon!
Brown Owls are naturally also brown, and therefore the strawberry/mint ice cream potholders belong to this post as well. For my Crochet Badge I made this double potholder using organic cotton. This is the first side, not totally flat due to lack of practice.




The other side was easier to get flat.



From the remaining yarn I made this little beauty today. It was a new pattern found here. After the second start I understood the idea and it was quite fun to make. I can't remember where I found the link, it was a crochet Flickr group and they had a link to the pattern in English as well.

  6. This is a wonderful post. We have baby squirrels coming to our bird feeders now.. they are so FAST! I do't seem to mind them as much as the big heavy ones who break the feeders to get the seeds. But I know these babies won't stay little and cute.
    Lovely pot holders! I like brown a lot too.. especially mixed with yellow and orange, or with pink and blue. Can't wait to see that sashing and border on your star quilt!
