No, not me! It is little Ellen Mouse’s big day. I had a custom order for mice bride and groom – so much fun! Used the end of a sleeve of a 45 year old wedding dress and added silvery Christmassy touches. The groom is wearing a black pinstripe suit shot with gold, with a red waistcoat and silver buttons and cravat. The beads and small parts mean that these mice are decoration only; not toys and not suitable for children.
The wedding photography was fun…who says soft focus is outdated???
My dear friend Irene at vastgotaspets och tradgard had a giveaway to celebrate 1000 posts (well 1004 actually) and I won this beautiful yarn. I am going to pop in to ‘Wool’ in Bath to ask advice about a scarf or shawl pattern that would suit both the yarn and my crochet inexperience.
Ellen Mouse is getting ready for Christmas, with a reversible Christmas pinafore. This one is a custom order, but I will be putting them in my shop soon too…along with Christmas pinafores and other accessories for those who already own an Ellen Mouse.
If you would like an Ellen Mouse of your own, hop on over to my Facebook page Deerey Me and ‘like’ the page and add a comment to the giveaway post there. Good luck!
This morning’s task was to make myself an Ellen Mouse mannequin. Every now and then I get a request for clothing for an Ellen Mouse, so I thought I should have an Ellen Mouse to keep, so I can fit clothes to her. Of course I could not let the little mouse parade around in the all together, so had to make her a vest and frilly pants…for decency’s sake.
This dress will be heading off to an Ellen Mouse in need of a Summer dress now the weather is too warm for a sweater and pinafore.
