Not so Scary Halloween

I received a lovely package from my friend Sheri Seibold last week.  She sent me some Halloween fabric that she designed and I have started putting it to good use.  I have been cutting, sewing, turning right side in, and sewing some more and this is what I came up with.  I have wanted to make a Halloween bunting for awhile  with her whimsical fabric and I was so excited to get some from her collection from last year as well as her new fabric from this years collection.  I know some college kids that need some decorations for the season.

Here is my helper for the day Crusty.  She is protecting the fabric from the squirrels outside by giving them the stink eye.  Oh and I better not forget she is adding some of her fur to the project.  I will post a photo of the finished banner as soon as I get them sent off to the girls.

Squirrel hunting begins

These little guys started to build a nest in our car so it is time for them to go.  Our neighbor has been hunting squirrels for the pas few weeks and cough over 34 of them in his yard alone.  He put a traps in his neighbors yard and caught 7.  Today I put one of his traps in our yard and started the squirrel removal process myself.  It was full before 9 this morning and the little critter was relocated by 10.  The trap is reset and ready to go.  You can hear the varmint chatter in the video, wish it was not such a pest I think they are so cute but they have to go. ( you can push pause on the music bar to the left so you can hear the noise coming form the cage.)

This was caught while I was recording it.  I got lucky.  This was less than two hours after I caught the first one this morning.  I hope it enjoyed the organic peanut butter and Mountain Medially before it's long trip...
