Mouse in Wreath Wool Ornament


Mouse in Wreath Wool Ornament


Many people loath mice, but the phrase, “not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse” brings more positive memories of mice.  Our family’s favorite mouse is Stuart Little.  My son had me read chapters of that book to him every night for months.  He loved Stuart’s adventures on the garbage barge, his daring escapes from the awful family cat, and his adventures on the sailboat in Central Park.  I, myself, loved Beatrix Potter’s “The Tale of Two Bad Mice” who go on a rampage in a doll’s house, but atone for their sins in the end.  I hope you love this mouse ornament and find the time to make several.  You can change their looks by their coloring and their decorations.
