EeeeeK...!

We have mice,

loose in the house!

Where's that cat when you need him?!

This week has been new pattern week.  There are quite a few in the pipeline, some working better than others.  I have a few half finished animals sat on my desk, and others still in sketch form.  At least the ideas have been flowing, thank goodness!  There are potentially some big projects coming up.

ps, giveaway winner is..., (drumroll please)

well, it looks like Rusty is off to Italy (lucky thing!), to live with Dolci Fusa!

Yes, Rusty is one lucky dog! Who wouldn't want to go to Italy?
Seriously, these little mice of yours are adorable, by far the cutest things I have seen online today. I can't wait to see more of your stuffed animals. Keep them coming!

Ha ha ha! This made me laugh as my friend Liz (who lives in London and whose house I'm staying in this weekend) has mice too.
They come out at about 4am and have learnt how to steal the chocolate from the mousetraps......
She now has about 8 traps and 2 gluemats (yuk!)
maybe if I try and make something like this lovely mouse, it'll frighten the real ones off??

I've forgotten: your mouse is so cute and sweet! My fiance has fallen in love with him.
And when I've discovered I've won, I showed him your Rusty and he's said: "Bellissimo, che dolce!" (translation= Beautiful! He's so sweet!)

Now they are the kind of mice that I would LOVE to see hiding around corners at my house.

Lovely!!!
We have the real type living under the kitchen floor at the moment, I'd much prefer a colony of these ones on a shelf somewhere :)
