Spring is Coming!

Finally!  The snow is melting, the time has changed and the creatures are starting to emerge at McBride House.
Red the Chipmunk made an apprearance last week begging for acorns.
Oh, look!  He found some!
Hopefully he will share them with Madeline the squirrel.
This little woodland gnome was out foraging for some food today with the help of Mr Hedgehog.
This owl can't believe that spring has finally sprung!
Mr Toad is very anxious for the spring peepers to start singing.
Finally this little woodland gnome is picking up the few acorns that the chipmunks and squirrels missed.
Check out these and much, much more at McBride House!

Winter! Who Needs It!?

I think this winter weather is getting to me.  I'm tired of it.  So tired of it that it's beginning to affect my needle felting.
As you can see, this "Ain't no bluebird of happiness!"  In fact I think it's a self portrait.
This little owl is so "foul" that his colour matches his mood.
He even looks grumpy sideways!
Yep... no way around it... we're GRUMPY!
