I am so glad I followed another link and found your site again, and now your blog. I admire your work, and as a fellow doll maker, I also admire your generosity of spirit, and immense creativity. the mice are darling. I am having a baby this year, and I think I will try and make a mobile of them.

I made the mouse and set it on my work table. Sometime during the night my cat carried it off. She loves playing with it.
