The Suspense Was Killing Me

December 27th, 2009

On Thursday I wrote about my niece’s homemade gift to my dad.

After many great guesses, I figured a photo of Hannah and her inspiration would be fitting.

It’s Beatrice, her guinea pig made out of salt dough. My dad loves it of course, because it was made with love by his granddaughter.

    I knew it was a tailless animal (see previous post) with a snout I just couldn’t figure out what there were that were tailess (I know they have a little stump tail don’t they)?

    Handmade is simply the best.

    I totally had it wrong, but now I can clearly see that this is a guinea pig!

    Of course. How completely obvious. I’m embarrassed that I didn’t clearly see that. This child has skills. Carry on.
