Way up in the attic...

 I spent the weekend cleaning out the attic, and doing things like refolding my antique quilts, getting rid of things, and reorganizing other things.  In the process, I rediscovered this redwork gem that I had forgotten about:
I love these kinds of days of cleaning and reassessing my treasures.  I know how fortunate I am and quiet work days make me feel especially blessed.  I'm doing a lot of programs this autumn and I wanted to be sure to get this job done before the traveling begins (it starts again on Wednesday! Yeh!!!).  
Anyway, I'm wondering what this set of animals are:
Honestly, they remind me of prairie dogs but I think that they were supposed to possibly be lions? It is curious to me.  
Tomorrow will be great weather for ducks!  We are expecting 1.5 to 3 inches of rain in one day!
I'll spend the day packing for Wednesday and sewing before I get back "on the road again".  Have a great day!

My first thought was that they were prairie dogs!
