Joyous Christmas from our family to
Kimara and Michelle
It is that time of year when Michelle and I tuck away Wee Folk Art for a few weeks to spend time with the family and enjoy a little rest and relaxation. Before “heading out” (actually, we are staying put and everyone else is coming to us :), we wanted to share a little Christmas Mouse with you. Thank you, Fairy, for providing the inspiration. Although I’ll still be kicking around Facebook, we will see everyone back here in 2013 🙂
This year, Fairy tried out for and won a roll in a local production of the Nutcracker. We were all so proud of her, and not just for landing a roll, but for being brave enough to enter a totally unknown situation and giving it her all!
Fairy was a gray mouse. Perhaps I’m biased, but I thought she was the most talented and adorable little mousey out there 🙂 She scurried across the stage with all the grace and agility of a real mouse! She oozed talent 🙂
Michelle asked if I’d make a Little Gray Mouse Applique Block to commemorate her accomplishment. Of course, I did… including the little pink ears and belly. As always, I made the mouse to fit on a 6″ x 6″ block, but it can be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs. And although I “Christmased” it up for the holidays, this is a mouse for all seasons!
The pattern for the Little Mouse Applique Block can be found HERE.
