Gray Squirrel, Gray Squirrel Swish Your Bushy Tail

I just finished this little guy today. He kind of reminds me of the camp song "Gray Squirrel". I used to sing it back when I was a camp counselor for developmentally disabled adults and children. The song was complete with hand motions and tail swishing. It goes like this:
Gray squirrel, Gray Squirrel
Swish your busshy tail.
Gray squirrel, Gray squirrel,
Swish your bushy tail,
Wrinkle up your funny nose,
Put a nut between your toes,
Gray squirrel, gray squirrel,
Swish your bushy tail.

There's a pretty funny website that has videos of people doing the gray squirrel song. It's

He's BEAUTIFUL! Started needle felting about three months ago and love it. I call my projects "The Christmas Caper" as many (maybe not so lucky) members of my family will receive some critter that they probably won't recognize....I know I don't yet! You have inspired me to carry on....perhaps there's hope. Thanks!
