Mice in my house

EEKK!!! There’s mice in my house!

First I found this blue and purple one on my chair….. good thing I didn’t sit on it!

look at that cute face though! there’s no way I could get rid of it.

It quickly found a friend that was already in Sonja’s room and had been there for a while.

and of course once you see one, there’s more to come.

So this big momma showed up soon after that

They think mice scare me in groups! but they didn’t…..

2014-09-24 003

Then the little baby came too

2014-09-24 004

Now it’s a family of four!

Sonja liked them right away- EEEK don’t touch that mouse, it’s purple!

2014-09-24 008

I guess their squeaks were loud enough, because this brother showed up too after that

2014-09-25 001

Now it’s a whole family of 5.

Aren’t they cute? ahem I mean terrifying?

2014-09-25 002

Then an Aunt and cousin showed up too

And Sonja still liked them all

2014-09-26 007

There’s 9 of them now in a basket

Then some more boyish mice showed up too with custom words on their bellies, when is it going to end? my house is being overrun by cute mice!

Oh the horror!

All joking aside,

these mice are all made in the hoop, the pattern is from dolls and daydreams here

all in just 2 hoopings!

the ears and limbs are in one hooping (first)

then the body is made and toward the end you lay the limbs on it and attach the back.

The tail is made on the machine.

If you look at dolls and daydream’s ITH stuffies, you can guess there’s ONE file I REALLY want (and maybe by the time I schedule this post I will have bought it!- it’s a HOOT)

There is one in my house too, I am told! Not one with that cute face though. I'm hoping my husband is just delirious as I have not seen any sign of it! :-)

These are so cute. They must be addictive.

So cute. I love your Mice Family. I think I'm going to have to get this design and stitch out a Family. Looks like they'd be great for Christmas Mice, as well as other seasons. And certainly make great gifts.

I see your mice breed as fast as those in the wild so cute

I could live with these mice, I absolutely can NOT live with their flesh and blood cousins - urgh-(shiver runs down back just thinking about them) Is there a way of making these if you don't have a machine that embroiders?

Oh my gosh are those cute!! Are you going to make a bunch for your craft show? I have a feeling we will see owls before long :)
