Year 2012: Mouse with Cheese
- His legs were too small and I kept losing them too.
- His body never went together right unless I took my time forming the shape. ugh!
- Using hot glue to stick the arms and legs on burned my fingers time and time again!
I couldn't stitch him multiple colours, obviously, but I was able to be creative and use two different shades of grey, black and white to stitch them. Mom got the white one, Dad got the black one and everyone else got shades of grey. Their noses were micro mini pom poms in either pink, red, or black and they all had small size google eyes glued to their tiny heads that also burned my finger tips. His piece of cheese was an unstitched piece of orange plastic canvas so it looked like "swiss cheese" ... pretty cool eh?
He was mailed inside a small padded manila envelope with the Christmas cards, and this year I had added one person to the list of recipients... an old friend from childhood, who was like a sister back in the good ole days! I had cut extra patterns of this guy but never stitched them.
This mouse was hard to stitch, but he was stitched with much love... so much love that it burned my finger prints off ... Ha!
Now.... what could the ornament for 2013 be? By now everyone is in receipt of the 2013 ornament.... I'll make the big reveal tomorrow!!!!!
