Make Your Own Hodge and Podge and… Eric?

Squirrel Picnic

Thank you for your interest in crocheting a squirrel friend!

This pattern is featured in Squirrel Picnic’s debut story and crochet pattern book, The Big Acorn Race.

The Big Acorn Race by Jennifer Olivarez

Follow Hodge and Podge and their friend Eric as they compete to see who can get an acorn out of a tree first. It sounds simple, but there’s a catch: they aren’t allowed to climb the tree. They each must use their wit and imagination to come up with an alternative solution. What will they invent and who will win?

Retro #64


Today’s card is for a Fabulous Sketch over at Retro Sketches #64.

 As soon as I saw it, I was hoping I would have some time to play along.

 I have made two additional cards this week and didn’t get either of them linked up on time…UGH!

Hate when that happens, but in the grand scheme of life is that really what matters?

I get upset with myself when I get upset about something so petty when there is tragedy surrounding us each and everyday!

Watching the news just breaks my heart!! Those children and teachers must have been so frightened!

 God Bless all of them!

So, today I will be thankful for the little things and the things that don’t get done….really don’t matter after all.



This card is going to a fellow co-worker whom unfortunately is being displaced next year….

but that is another sad story in itself.
