Treadling, Heather and a Hungry Squirrel

Today has been mostly cloudy  after almost 1 and a half inches of gentle rain in 24 hours. But that is always perfect weather to find sanctuary in my little studio.

Here is today’s Tour de Fleece installment of a bobbin of Shetland singles on my Kromski Minstrel.  Thai is my first time spinning Shetland and thank goodness I am enjoying it as I have 2 pounds!

I have been appreciating the vibrant colors in these heathers in our garden.  Even when they are not flowering the foliage often adds a stunning contrast.

As I was spinning,  one of our resident squirrels hung from the window screen and was undeterred by my presence in a quest for sunflower seeds and peanuts.

  1. Love the squirrel pictures!

    • Thanks. I thought the squirrel would run away when I took out my cell phone and snapped pics but the sunflower seeds and peanuts were more important!

  2. If your squirrels are anything like ours, the mere presence of a human is not enough to deter them in any way, shape or form when there is a bird feeder to be raided!
