Knitting Mouse | Beatrix Potter


I love discovering new drawings by Beatrix Potter that I've never seen before. This knitting mouse delights me. Signed lower right H.B.P. for Helen Beatrix Potter, her full name. via

i always love a mouse!
we moved every year because of my father's job. i was forever the "new girl." one year i drew a mouse on my notebook and named him ralph. he got lots of attention. he made lots of new friends. and then he shared them with me.

Rosemary,
What is it about Beatrix Potter paintings. I dearly love every one I've always seen...this one is especially dear.

I have loved Beatrix Potter's art since I was a toddler.The tiny illustrations on the end papers of the Warne and Co copies of her books that my brother and I shared, fascinated me as much as the story illustrations.
Have you seen the book,' The Art of Beatrix Potter' by E. & L. Linder? It was a wonderful teaching resource for my primary school classes. Now I'm retired, it is still frequently off the shelf for me to browse through.
