Tiny Acorn

I was thinking today would be September 31st, but I’m happy to see that it’s October! (Someday I’ll learn how to read a calendar.) So let’s kick the month off right with an autumnal tiny thing.


Winning caption by Wendy:

Can you imagine what it’s like to be a tiny acorn? (Or a regular-size acorn, for that matter?) Leave your cute/funny caption suggestion in the comments! On Monday I’ll choose the winner, who will get a free PDF pattern from the Mochimochi Shop.
