Pearl the Snail

Aunt Katri left the door open today and a little snail took that as an invitation and wandered inside. She is a very friendly snail with an adorable smile. Aunt Katri said "Hello there little one, come on in and make yourself at home." And the snail did just that.

The snail asked why the house was empty. Aunt Katri told the little snail that she just moved here and her furniture is on the way. But she had a comfy bed and a nice dresser upstairs that her son had made her. The snail looked around and thought it was a very fine room and that it felt homey even without furniture.

Then the little snail said, "My name's Pearl, what's yours?" Aunt Katri told her name and then asked Pearl if she would like to stay for supper. The little snail suddenly felt very hungry and said "Oh yes, that
would be lovely, thank you!"

And that's how Katri the Gnome and Pearl the Snail met. It didn't take long at all for Aunt Katri to find a friend in the forest. She was thankful that she left her door open and that Pearl wandered into her home. Life is good but it's even better when you have good friends!

I needle felted this little snail. The fleshy parts are 3 different colors that I built up in layers. Many hours, and half way through I wondered what is wrong with me spending all this time, lol  And I could use a little more experience in making a shell part, but I do love her, flaws and all.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed meeting Pearl the Snail. There's more stories and characters on the way so come back soon!
