In the Company of a Squirrel
It should not be this dark when I leave school. Isn't that one of the perks of teaching - the great hours? Yeah, right. By the time I had finished enough of my plans for next week that I felt justified in heading home, it was completely dark out. And it was well past the time that my favorite bead store closes, so I was unable to pick up the supplies that I'd been planning on purchasing today. I was a bit bummed, especially since I was looking forward to posting images of new earrings that I was going to make this evening. Ugh - I thought I'd be stuck with another photoless post tonight. But, no! Maritza to the rescue! Waiting for me in my mailbox was this adorable little guy:
He's one of the many great softies (or pincushions - but perish the thought of poking this squirrel) that are available in her knotty bits etsy shop. I'm loving this guy... and he's going to keep me company until I can make it to the bead shop tomorrow.
