Holiday meeces...

This year I have tried to be a bit more creative which is why I hosted YOE.
We are in the last quarter now and looking back, I am so glad I did it. Not only have I had fun and met new people, but I've tried new crafts and had fun in the process.

I always make at least 2 ornaments and choose the best one to send off to my partner.

This month's ornament was the mouse.

First, I made this one...it is about 3 inches tall.
I used a pattern that I bought last year and added a little crocheted scarf .




and this one..I was inspired by an ornament off Calamity Kim's blog. I was going to link to it but can't find it!...anyway, here is what I did...


I sent the first one off because it was more difficult to make and looked so sweet holding the little Christmas tree....but I love them both!

I think they're both cute! Your YOE swap was such a great idea and it seems like you're all having a good time swapping!

Hi Val
I love both mice ornaments. They are adorable. The first mouse reminds me of the mice from a tv show called 'Bagpuss' that I watched as a child. The mice were carved on a wooden musical 'mouse organ' and they came to life and had adventures with Bagpuss the cat. It was all rather bizarre!

Sweet little ornaments.

What I want to know is how many aprons do you have and where do you keep them all. :)

Hope you are having a great day! Tammy
