ever since i saw these adorable embroideries on etsy (and bought them right away, of course!) i’ve wanted to make a knothole skirt.
then i found a few more at thrift stores, and the little mouse one on etsy again.
i’ve only seen these 4 designs. have you seen any others?
when i first moved into my house, there was a big dead tree in the back yard. it had been there for many years, it was mostly hollow. every time we got a lot of rain, another limb would fall off. it was my favorite feature of the yard until it completely toppled over in a big rainstorm a few winters ago.
one year a couple of woodpeckers raised their family in it. they pecked out a perfectly round hole for a doorway. the next year it was home to a family of squirrels. they were so cute, one day i tossed out some stale tortillas and they brought them up to the top branch and lined them up in a row. so funny!
