Rusty & "Etta"

Do you think Rusty thinks she is a real squirrel?  He was definitely getting involved in the picture taking process this time!  Meet Little Etta....my second version of Henrietta Whiskers.  I am putting this one together for Bears Paw Fabrics using their fabrics, wool felt and Valdani threads.  Judy gave me a free hand to choose the colors I had in mind for this second little squirrel.  Notice that she is a grey squirrel this time, which is an entirely different color variation from the original block.  The little "fussy cut" squares of the sewing basket and sheep, as well as the striped portion behind "Little Etta"are from the new Tangled Threads fabric line by Whimsicals.

She's cute - I think this may be my favourite version so far!

She's very cute too. It will be fun to see both versions grow. Rusty doesn't think she's a squirrel. Rusty is helping. Giving the picture just the right amount of desired cuteness. A job well done.
