The Duchess and white mousie

I'm thinking it's getting a bit cooler and I wonder if we are going to be in line for the snow that is forecast. As we live at the top of Scotland people often think we get lots of snow but we don't, that is reserved for lower down! 2010 was pretty bad, but also hit the whole country as well. So lets hunker down and get on with some crafting....that's my idea anyway!

Here is a little white mousie that I made and she is joining the Chitter Chatter Crafty Club and will join in the knitting frenzy that is going on there.
                                                         Isn't she a little sweetie?

Back view. Sitting comfortably on her reel of cotton. Her little heart declares 'knit'! She will be popped into my Etsy shop soon.

This is something I can show you now that the recipient has received her. The 'Duchess'
Her hair puts mine to shame...really must get it sorted! Love her dress, don't save dresses for best wear them now, best might never come!!

There is a little scroll there wrapped in some raffia which is the title 'deeds' to the Duchess chateau. She certainly has some fancy lace on her dress.

The 'poem' on the back is the same as the Countess one. 'Now I am old', a take on the poem 'When I am old' She has settled into her new home and is partaking of tea and scones as I type.

My daughter did these two pastel drawings of our little dogs, Nikki (top) and Archie. They look quite the thing hanging on the wall.

Here is scruff posing with his portrait before he proceedes to chew it!

Etsy shop now open!

I have re-opened my Etsy shop at long last and a few things listed in there.
Including these lovie dovie birdies with a beakful of love hearts.

and two little mice reading the cheese recipe book to decide what to cook for dinner. All nice and cosy on a wintery day. . I wonder how long that bowl of cheese nibbles will last!
Need to take a better photo tho.

Chitter, Chatter Craft Club.

This week I have been upto my knees in meeces...knitting and sewing ones that is!

she was a bit lonely so she decided to call her friend who likes sewing and embroidery...

and they both decided it was a good idea to set up a crafting club...so they invited their friends....





and the Chitter, Chatter Craft Club was formed. Only for mice I'm afraid, but you could become an honary member by purchasing one!!

Well, shall we tiptoe away and let them carry on knitting their winter jumpers and embroidering tablecloths.


It's nice to cuddle up to someone on a cold wintery evening.....
Better still to use them as a comfy pillow, so soft and warm!
