The mouse takes the cheese



Or gets stuck with pins & needles

Look what I made today!

Valentine Mouse Pincushion.
Instructions are here.

Changes made: Added an extra layer of "cheese" colored felt under the heart shape and practiced my blanket stitch for an extra sturdy base.
Added a braided tail; 2 beady blue eyes.
I stuffed him with dryer lint.

The only good mouse is a felt mouse!

Thanks so much for commenting on the hexie blog about the Walton's. Haven't seen Lord of the Rings...I know, I must live under a rock. It's on my list though. Thanks for the tip on the Down Under Quilts online, will have to check it out.
Thanks,
