more little mouse

I am still in a mousemaking mood. lol
Birgit suggested I should use real bearfabric instead of an old sock and she even gave me the adres of a webshop in the Netherlands, this webshop has the most lovely and soft bearfabric for little bears. I had to alter the pattern because it doesn't stretch like the old sock, but I am very pleased with the result. Birgit you see I have been a very good girl and listened to your feedback.

two little mice

I am freaking out on real mice, but I am so in love with the mouse of the book,"The mouse Mansion" That I wanted to make a mouse myself, to use if I will read the book with my grandson, and maybe make a little mouse-room for it. If you don'y know the book go look for it, it is so awesome.
I took an old sock and some pipe-cleaners and just experimented a little. The big mouse is 6 cm and the small one 4 cm.
I love how they turned out.

new things

At the dutch forum I am participating a yearswap, every month one of the members has to make something to sent to the other members. January was the month Cassandra had to make the swap, I got this beautiful tray.
At the fair in Urk I bought a workshop for a daybed, I made it last weekend. I only made an other mattress.
At the Dutch forum we had a workshop everyday before Christmas, the little book I liked very much, but something went wrong everytime I tried, I even cut my finger very badly, mind you by only cutting paper. But at the end I had some succes and finished the book.
And yes I finished to make the windowpanes for the French house and I am very proud of that, sorry no picture yet, you have to believe for that. but this means I can go on with the house that is waiting for so long to get finished. Image Hosted by
