Happy Friday!

Hello My Friends,
 What a week this has been. Some pretty nice things have been going on, but first I have a little Ta Dah. My daughter is going to a birthday party this afternoon and the birthday girl is really a sweet little thing. She reminds me of a cute little mouse. So that is what Autumn asked me to make for her. Can I tell you how happy I was that my daughter wanted me to make a  toy for one of her friends. I subscribe to Crochet World magazine, I really like it. Every issue has at least 2 things I end up making. The Patchwork Puppy I made last Sunday came from this issue too. Here is the little Ballerina Mouse.
It only took a few hours to make. I sat down after work last night and worked it up before bed.
I have been on  a toy making kick lately. I am still working on that mystery toy. I will post it before Easter, and I love it. I just can't show what it is yet.
 The cool news is that my good friend Lisa, at Karisma's Kraft, has started a wonderful group on Ravelry. She asked me to moderate with her and of course I said yes. The group is for knitters and crocheters. It is a very friendly and happy place where we are going to do all sorts of CALs and KALs. Yes, I am going to jump in and start to knit. I learned how last year and have never finished a project. Time to figure it out. The group is informal and everyone is invited to host their own CALs/KALs. The moderators will always be hosting something too. There is no pressure to join in on every project, you can watch, join in or just admire others work. We already have 15 members and the group just started Wednesday. I love Karisma, she came up with the name and banner. Here it is...

I am very proud and excited about this group. Come on over and check us out. We would love to have you as a member. I will talk to everyone soon. :)     

P.S. I just found out from one of my Ravelry friends that the link is not working for our group. Here it is.

  1. Wow, what a sweet little mouse! I bet the girl loved it - it seems like the perfect size too, not too big and not too small. Good luck with the ravelry group! Alice :)

  2. Love your little mouse. I have never tried making a critter but with a Grand Daughter on the way I'm thinking I better learn. I subscribe to Crochet World and I might have to give this sweet little thing a try. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Such a gorgeous mouse- we just went to angelina ballerina and I bet my daughter would love this! Ill go over and check your groups now! Jx
