Not Even A Mouse....
Tasha is a needle felted hamster, not a mouse. But she doesn stir much being made of wool, alpaca and llama. Her tiny whiskers are llama guard hairs.
My friend Sylvia added this ending to the spider story:
"I thought that the way the story was going to end was that the spider spun a beautiful web and when the old woman went out in the morning she saw that there was dew all over the web and the sun shining through the dew on the web made the colors of the rainbow. The web was so beautiful that she called all her neighbors to come see it and it made them all happy." Syl
Folk tales have so many variations and telling stories is nearly a lost art.
