It was just my sisters birthday last week and this was one of her presents...
About a month or two ago I was at her house hanging out with some people. We got into a conversation about the prospect of her getting a pet squirrel. I being the natural born pessimist that I am asked a million questions and basically tried smashing her dream of having pet squirrels that would live outside during the day but come home at night. Of course this was a slightly intoxicated conversation (although I'm sure it would have been damn near the same if we were totally sober)and in her crushed dream sadness she uttered "I could get a squirrel to love me....If he knew how much I loved him..." After laughing hysterically for a few minutes, I put this gem of a quote into the back of my mind for crafty possibilities!!
This is what I came up with!  The squirrles and heart pattern are from Subversive Cross Stitch



Thanks for looking!

I love this piece and the story!  I've imagined my favorite quotes (intoxicated or not) in cross-stitch from time to time... this inspires me to make them happen!

Brilliant. The lettering and squirrel love design are perfect for such a ridiculous (and yet totally adorable) quote. This ROCKS Smiley.

I really need to start writing down some of my drunk musings. Thanks for the inspiration!!

Awww I love squirrels so much. I wanted a pet squirrel too but then I found out that, at least in NY state, it is illegal to keep native wildlife as pets. However, if I were able to get a squirrel that is NOT normally native to NY, I can keep it as an exotic pet...

I adore this! I'm with her, if squirrels knew how much we loved them, why wouldn't they stay?
