Pay It Forward ..


A Wee while ago i put in a request on Teddy-talk.com for mohair scraps as it was my ambition to try this stuff, even just to handle it and see what it was like ... a dear member of teddy talk send me about 4 different colours and a couple of different textures and i was smitten ... i just bought a piece of english loom mohair on Ebay ... and apparently some more scraps are on their way to me soon ...

I send the person a handmade thank-you and after i finnished a couple of projects off i got, to playing with the mohair and this tiny brown mouse was the first thing to be born ... it was such a wee tiny scrap and i loved the challenge of seeing what i could do with it :-) All hand stitched ...

Now i am giving it away to someone else, and all you need to you is leave a comment below and i will do a little draw, at least by next week :-) If you want to trade blog links you can add your request in below too ... the white mouse is a mock-up for Wendy's special Commission.

Thank you ....

What a lovely thing for you to do :) i too recieved (i wouldnt dare call them scraps)pieces of mohair and other materials from the generous, kind people at teddy talk..and am planning to do somthing but i didnt feel that my bears where good enough to leave home yet...im getting to the stage where i too can "pay it forward" but was wondering how to do it....do you mind terribly if i borrow your idea of a draw somtime in the near future?

great mice by the way....and as the person who recently TRIED to make a hamster ..lol...i know how deceptivly hard the wee critters are to make :)

He's adorable! Oddly enough I never find people's blogs unless there's a contest going on.. I'm starting to feel like a mooch!

I've read over your older posts, you have a very interesting blog life! I'm glad I came!

Love those mice!
