okay... trying that again....I got your little mousie on my blog today... but was trying to leave a link to the post only ...not the whole blog...but, html at the end of the line had me stymied I think.

So... here goes a second try... whole blog link instead of the html at the end of the line..perhaps it will work this way ...

Wheelie Mouse

sorry for the deleted one....

The white mice with the red ears/eyes have always been my favourite!

Hello!
I just found you from Needle.org :) I am now a new follower. I love collecting little mousies and I'm always looking for new patterns. I'm off now to your Etsy shop to look at your creations! Glad to have found your blog.

Jen said...

I'm a new follower from Needle.org too! I'm so glad to have found your blog! I'm honestly so in love with your work. The little VW Bus has completely stolen my heart! So cute!! <3

Harris the dog is a favorite of mine, but I see someone snapped him up. The traditional boy rats are a close second. The craftsmanship is outstanding on all your items. Big fan, but you knew that already.

Cat -- your new mouse design is absolutely adorable! I think your pastel blue rats are the best (have been tempted to add one to my plush collection for some time now!)

I follow your blog and facebook and I absolutely <3 your shop!

Hello - I love all of your items... really. My favourite today - the Woodstock 69 plush. Or maybe the raggy rat for babies - with the very cute pic of Mary. I don't know!

Could you put in an entry for me please? Thanks.
