Please meet baby squirrel Fall.

A textile ornament of a baby squirrel to display fondly in your home.

The very first time that tiny Fall made his way out of the dray he was rudely poked in the eye by a pine needle! and ow! did that hurt! He could hardly see a thing for all the tears, and not just tears of pain but of resentment and humiliation! It had never happened to any of the other babies so why had it happened to him he wondered? He glared ruefully at the pine needles and decided to go one better, so he snipped them off at the stalks! There! he felt a lot better straight away. But mama saw what he was doing and came over to give him a small chide. She said he has to think before he acts because even though that needle was not nice to him, the other needles were, as they give the dray entrance protection from all the baby-squirrel-eaters so we should be thankful for them. Well, Fall had a wee think about this, then he remembered the time a big hawk had swooped by but not seen them, and the time a snake had slithered along the branch and got entwined in the needles then slinked off, and the time a pine marten had scuttled past but could smell nothing but pine-forest-freshness (that was scary! Mama had made everyone freeze for a few minutes!) and he had to agree with mama, so he apologized for his snipping and let another big tear slip down his cheek. Mama kissed the tear away and then kissed him better and said his eye would be fine in a day and not to worry, the needles would grow back in no time. Fall felt a little better after that then began to look upon the pines as very special friends as he saw how slender and pretty each little stabber was, and how they all proudly claimed their own space, to protect with impunity. And they smelt divine as well! He remembers waking on many a morning to their fresh scent, he will never forget that. Plus they are so very beautiful, all bristling proudly together along their twig like a green squirrel tail! Yes indeed, he thought, the pines were very, very special.

Fall is looking forward to a cosy spot on your shelf. Then again, he would prefer your cushion instead, as it’s on the chair and nearer the french doors next to the pines outside, so he’d love to nestle there when he’s resting. Ofcourse he asks that they stay open so that he can go out to visit mama every day and spend time in the pine trees appreciating them more. He still has a lot to learn about them. You are welcome to come with him too ofcourse, but mind your eyes – no peering closely at those needles because a breeze can wheek them every so swiftly into your eye, and Fall sure isn’t going to kiss your tears away – I mean, look at your size, you’re huge and your tears will be like rivers to such a tiny squirrel for sure! and salty at that! But never mind, if you do get stabbed he will give you a little kiss better, as he knows they work a treat – he’s had rather a few from mama over the weeks!

Fall has been made with great care and has safety eyes. He has been machine and hand sewn by me and will have many ‘unique’ (imperfect, handmade) bits
However, he is not recommended for children and is not a toy.

He is made of an upcycled tea towel - very fetching! along with a full stomach of pine cone seeds (only joking!).
He stands approx 16.5cm high and 12cm wide. Approx 6”and a bit x 5” Not including his thin pipecleaner and tinsel tail.

Fall is excited about his journey and is looking forward to his forever home!
He also wants you to know that baby squirrels are called kittens and in some places – pups and other places - kits.
