A couple of finishes...

Amongst all the hustle and bustle for Christmas, I have managed to finish a couple of things . One is the arm chair caddy (thanks Helen for the great pattern)



And the other was a little mouse made from a kit that I bought at the last Rocheberie Quilters meeting. He doesn't look anything like the one she made so I reckon I've sewed it together wrong...but he turned out cute just the same. He's a little favorite of my DD2 and she has claimed it as her pocket buddy...

Aren't those armchair caddy adorable, I've made a few myself. Love the colors you chose. And that is one cute Christmas mouse. I used to love stories with mice as characters.

I can't imagine that little mouse any other way . . . he's just darling *s*

I think that mouse has been eating too many mince pies, as he looks a bit chubby - in a good way!

Mousey is adorable, love the caddy too. That looks like a fun and well organised group you go to as well. My group has finished for the year, think I might get withdrawals waiting for it to start up again in '09 ;o)!!!
Hugs,

Hi

Your goodies look lovely, especially the armchair caddy - I may just have to make one myself! Love the mouse too - mine looked nothing like the original either, I should have been listening, never mind. Mousies tend to take on their own persona.
