Jane, of the forest a 3" Needle Felted Baby Mouse By Barby Anderson (SOLD)

 Helen Priem made the wonderful blue jay.  Timary Peterson made the cute little wool nest and I embellished it with wool locks.  Liane Straub made the gorgeous vine swing where I attached the wool nest.




When a wee mouse is born in the forest that is all alone....
The creatures of the forest attach long vines to the huge forest trees....
And they build a tiny nest for the babe and attach it to the vines....
It is a warm nest, however at times she needs a bit of extra care.....
If she even squeaks out a tiny squeak....
A forest creature flies quickly to see what she needs. If she had a bad dream the blue jay comes to help her....
And he gently pushes the swing....
Lulling her back to sleep.....
And the jay makes sure she always has sweet berries to nibble on....
Oh how she loves the tender berries!
Soon the swing stops swinging....
The wee babe feels content and happy again....
For who could ask for more when all the creatures of the forest are your Mama and Papa?
Sleep little one....sleep.....
