Day #53: Nosy, nosy, nosy

Alternate title: Being Needled

I am so angsty that my little mouse is not yet done. I forgot a cardinal rule: just because a puppet is small, does not mean it is simple. Sometimes, a smaller puppet can be much more complicated to build because you have to fit mechanisms in a much smaller space. You have to tweak things on such a minuscule scale that you feel you might never, ever finish. That's where I am right now. Puppet building purgatory.

Yesterday I was looking for my needle-nosed pliers. Now I have them. (They were in the traveling repair kit.) I had to resort to this puppet...

And it even has a moving mouth -- the bottom jaw, at that!
 Tomorrow: Racing to the MOUSE finish line!
