Just Nan has been releasing these adorable little constructed ornament mouse pieces that are just too cute.
There have been several, and I managed to snag a Witchy Mouse for Halloween and a Gingerbread Mouse for Christmas (there's also a gingerbread jingle mouse,
The one only took me a couple of days and was a lot of fun.
The instructions call for the use of a toothpick to make the broom, but my toothpicks weren't ones I thought would work well (colored and shaped oddly). I think I'm happier with this cut down bamboo skewer.

Under the Ott. I should have gotten a better picture of her back - there's a spider! :)
So I'm back to my regularly scheduled rotation.
I think I like the screaming/schedule hybrid that I've adopted. It's working out pretty well.
I emailed Nan/Just Nan - I had met her multiple times at CATS and because one of my high school buddies knew her (his sister was her god-daughter, and they lived in her house, complete with stencils and art she had painted on the wall!). I wanted to thank her for designing these awesome mice and to say that I was happy that she was still designing after my long hiatus from the stitching community. So many designers have either retired or just disappeared that it's nice to see a great designer still around. She returned my email (quickly!), and mentioned there will be another gingerbread mouse! whoohoo!
