E-gads, I'm telling you, I'm getting to the nitty-gritty with this post. AND......it's not like I'm not working! I have been sewing my fingers to the bone, but everything is hush-hush and Christmas gifts, or secret swaps, or one thing or another that I am running out of stuff to show you. I might have to resort to walking in the park, or cleaning out my basement or taking pictures of something else for next time. Ugh! 'Course, I'm sure I'm not the only blog you read, so your eye candy might have to come from the next blogger for awhile. (At least until I have permission to brag on my new stuff.) OR.....groom Toby and shop for Halloween costumes for him......which, now that I think about it, might be fun too!!!
In the meantime, let me show you my 2-3 hour apiece mice. YES, you read that right, these crazy mousies take 2-3 hours each to make by hand (and you wonder why I haven't been sewing much??) It started off where I wanted ornaments for the Trim the Tree swap, but once I perfected the pattern and got going, I couldn't seem to stop. You'll see what I mean.
I really got a bit crazy with the whiskers.
And here is one, hanging. They are all fully jointed so you can hang them, or sit them, or even make them do the splits, if you want them to.
I posted these on Flickr and the picture made EXPLORE. (That's kind of special in the Flickr world)
And then, when I discovered that my church was having a Christmas bazaar and needed donations, I made some more. After all, I couldn't let my church down, could I?
Problem is though, that everyone who sees these in person wants one. So, guess what I'll be doing right after I finish a few other obligations? I'm hoping the group grows to 24. Two dozen should be enough, I hope!
