Countdown to Christmas

Gina of Fan my flame is hoping to do a blog post every day leading up to Christmas and asked if anyone wanted to join her.
I thought I would give it a try.
So I am posting a little Christmas picture/item every day until Christmas Eve - or whenever I run out of steam!!
Today I am posting a little Christmas mouse.
I have been making these for the last 40 years.

Annie made some for the craft fair and I think there are a few left if anyone wants one. £2.75 plus postage. They are about 3 inches tall. They have a little stuffed head and the rest is a ribbon/fabric skirt  with lace and felt trimmings. Cute isn't she.

We noticed several folks scrutinising them at the craft fair - I nearly offered to give them the pattern!!! 

Well that's it.
Short and sweet or I will never manage a post a day!

See you tomorrow.
x Jo

The little mouse is very cute. I'm glad you've decided to join me with the advent posts.

I make little mice just like those! I laughed when you said people were scrutinizing them, i ve saw people do that and I can read their mind, they are thinking mmm, ho did she do this,!! This advent posting is a lovely idea, I was just thinking of breaking for the month of December!
