Mr. Mole is probably scared of things that fly off into the open air.
Adorable!

He may have given you no end of trouble, but he’s well worth it. The little doggie balloon is fantastic!

This is precious. I am a professional balloon twister so I am especially intrigued by the balloon dog. But that mole, oh my. I love this.

Thank you everyone!!! I’m delighted that he’s been received so warmly, but

he was a lot trouble.
.
I made him a Chimney Sweep brush and he said “no, too dark and dirty” (which from a mole is something).
.
I made him a whole bunch of digging tools and he thought “BLAH”.
.
I colored him a nice milk chocolate brown and he insisted on it being changed to dark, dark chocolate.
.
I got myself a drop spindle so I might spin a loose yarn with which to cover his fingers and toes and he laughed at me.

repeatedly.

Can’t actually blame him for that.
The drop spindle I purchased is actually too heavy for what I want to do. I’ve rigged together a lighter weight spindle (should have saved my money on the other) and have watched a dozen Youtube videos. I might even get the hang of it eventually. :smiley:

Is he a little mole???

Yes, he’s a mole. With the balloons it was impossible to get a good side view which would make that more obvious.

He sat as a “mole blank” (i.e. armature and enough foundation fiber to give him a recognizable shape) on my side table for a good long while. That may be why he was so ornery when finally being put together! :wink:
