Candy Cane Mouse

If I manage to do this right, this post shouldn't show up until tomorrow 12/21.
I know it's odd for me posting twice in one day, and since I didn't want to put
anyone into a Bonnie overload I'm holding it off until tomorrow :-)

Dawn from Dawn's Stamping Studio showed how to make this Candy Cane Mouse.

I decided I had to make them for the ladies I work with.

Here's a closer look.

Aren't they the cutest thing.

Thank you for sharing, Dawn.

Happy Monday,


Update** I made another 18 for a total of 25, to gift away. Quite Fun.

Rosette Motif & Doily

When we were in Texas earlier this year I blogged about Jon's Rosette Motif & Doily. I showed it to my friend, Mark (different Mark then my husband) who was able to turn it into this awesome paperweight. I asked him to be sure it was made right side up when he made it, which he did.

The paperweight was made in layers so that the motif is suspended in the layers of hard plastic. He did an excellent job, Thank- you Mark.

This is a Christmas gift it to my friend, Rose. She will recognize the thread as Yarnplayer's HDT "Roses" because I have gifted something to her in the past using this awesome HDT.

I forgot to mention that I stuck a piece of white felt on the bottom of it so it's not abrasive to a desktop or any other surface.

Super neat, I think she's going to like it.

Happy Sunday, Everyone.

Jane's Butterfly

I haven't tatted in months, and should have spent the time finishing up our Christmas cards, but instead I spent part of the last two days making this....... Jane's Butterfly.

Sadly it really is so much prettier than it looks. Here it looks all misshappen, but it's still pretty good for my first piece in months.

Thank you, Jane, for another great pattern.

Happy Life, Everyone!
