Three little mice, and ....visiting a friend

Fiona has just finished off her 3 little 'meeces', so thought I would show the three I have just finished.

One Christmas one of my friends gave these little mouse pincushions as Christmas gifts.
  She then agreed to teach us how to make them, including the hardanger on their backs.
I finished one, which then went on a plane flight to live in UK.  The other three have been sitting in their little box waiting to be completed for over a year, so last night was their night. 
Now they are ready to go to their new homes to be loved and used.

On Thursday we are heading off to visit family in North Queensland.  And..... the excitingest thing is that we will be staying in the town where Wendy lives.  So we have arranged to meet up.  Blogging quilting friends are the best, so to be able to meet Wendy is awesome.  Cant wait.

Big hugs,

Oh wow, they are so cute! I have made lots of those finger pincushions but never thought to turn them into "meeses"!

A hardanger mouse - well I never would have thought!! They are just so cute and certainly make lovely gifts. Looks like you have done a great job on them too Marilyn. Have a happy holiday 'up north'. Di
