Work in Progress – WIP

In 2010 I made a 6″ fabric page with an embroidered field mouse from an Inspirations magazine.  I enjoyed making it and as it was a swap item, I decided to make myself one also.

Well I began, but other must-do projects popped up and the mouse was set aside.

I’m still hesitating to begin my self taught pulled-thread work and am now working on my mouse.  I didn’t like the mouse colour so I unpicked his head and I’m now to this stage.  It was too dark before.

  1. The little mouse is looking good Maureen 🙂 ×

    • Thank you Barbara :-))

  2. Little mouse is beautiful Maureen….it’s always so nice to to see your work.
    Too bad that the RSN doesn’t have center in OZ, you really belong in something like that…..

    • I’m curious. What is RSN? LOL I can only think of Royal School of Nursing.

  3. I clicked twice to get a really close look, and I love your mouse and branches! Maybe while you work on him, if you ponder the other project, it will be easier to start it.

    • That’s a good thought Susan. thanks.

  4. All I can say is awwww. He (she) is already so cute. I have yet to manage to get long & short stitch to be successful – I can make a very realistic dog’s breakfast though!

    • MA, Those dog breakfasts are known to me on occasions. Then the frogging begins. Rippit!
