Wee Baby Mouse ~ I love you!

Here he is!

This morning I went to look for him and could not find him anywhere! My heart fell into my feet, I figured he got mixed up in the x-mas garbage and was gone. My kids helped me look. But it was me who found him in the end.
I went down on my hands and knees looking under furniture and praying. Finally, there he was! Squished up against the wall, in between cables behind my desk. I could barely see him, it was his little blue blankey that stood out.. thank goodness for that.
I screamed, "THERE HE IS!" and I scared my kids, lol
I was so relived. He's now safe and sound in the Bed & Breakfast with Aunt Katri to watch over him.

Okay, let's start at the beginning.

I made about 15 mice forms in Dec/2016 and this wee mouse was one of them. I just picked the smallest one I made and went to work on him. I will work on them one by one. It'll be a long project.

Don't mind my Gnome there, he's nosey and gets in the middle of everything! He thought he could blend in but he stands out like a sore thumb, doesn't he? The little mouse pictured here is the same one
that's laying down there on the tray.

I'm not sure I'll be giving them all hands with poseable fingers but I'm so glad I gave this little mouse some! He can hold his little teddy bear and blankey all on his own.
I make these with wire and thread. Just wrapping the thread around each wire. I do add some glue to the wire first.
I just love these wee hands so much!

That little bear I crocheted with sewing thread a few years ago. It was my attempt at micro crochet. It was too small for anything until this mouse was born! He doesn't go anywhere without his bear ;)

I haven't settled on a name yet. My son wants to call him Pebble, lol but I don't know. I'll think a while longer on it. I might call him Cheddar but maybe the Gnomes will come up with a name before I decide.

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon!

Don't forget, I'm on facebook. Stop by there and say hi. If you want to share photos of your miniatures, I'd love to see. Post them there! Dollhouse And The Things That Go In Them
