May the Lord bless your family and home this new year.
|The first day of 2011 came in with the winds howling and the temps dipping down to 9 degrees this morning and when you factor in the windchill I think it was -2. I rushed around to get the outside chores done this morning (this cold weather makes the animals want to eat more so they can stay warm) and then I tackled washing and ironing the laundry. I cleaned the kitchen and bedroom today. Saturday is my usual cleaning day but today I wanted to play with my crafting. |
Christmas Day my mother said that she had found some of her old patterns and I saw a little church mouse pattern but there was no instructions and the pattern was very fragile and brown. For some reason, I wanted to make this little mouse...and of course I needed to tie in one of my blue fruit jars and buttons. This is my first mouse and I plan to make more but I will make changes and develop my pattern better. I thought this little plain guy came out really cute. I may need to make the next one some clothes.
