squirrelly

our newest little friend, who was driven inward by the coldish nights (and perhaps the coyotes?) to seek comfort among the macadamias and walnuts in the cupboard. We have to keep an eye on her to keep her out of trouble!

I'm so inspired by the great work of Lisa Congdon, that I thought it would be fun to use up some of the scraps from my coat for a project like this (plus purple velvet and grey cashmere). This was a total blast, and it was nice to work on something small for a change - I've been able to put time in over several evenings, when I'm too tired to read anymore, and it's satisfying my creative needs just fine.

I hope her future owner likes her when she turns up this holiday season! For now, we just have to keep the cat away, as Zaha is convinced this toy must be meant for her.
