still playing with mice....
seems it's a recurring theme
now it's mr. and mrs. claus
and they're almost too cute for words!
still lots of detail to finish
but oh so much fun to play around and fiddle with!
so much fun in fact, i had to share it with my friend marj
who lives three towns over
we email back and forth pretty steadily about this and that...
family and life and what we're creating now, what's next, what's fun... that kind of thing
so naturally i told her about these little guys
and she was as enthusiastic about them as i am
(you can find the patterns here)
and since then the emails have been flying back and forth as we share our thoughts on how we are progressing, what we like, what didn't work so well and so on and so on...
|kind of an "einstein" thing happening here!|
sometimes as i'm writing her about what isn't going well a solution will come to mind
and so many times when one doesn't, she'll suggest one
we share ideas for fabrics, for techniques, for supplies...
|(waiting on arms and caps and whiskers and things!)|
and she's inventive
a fabulous sounding board
and a great source of inspiration
i was still reading the directions when she emailed me this photo of her first mrs. claus
isn't she adorable!?!

i've always said there is a great joy for me in making things
but it's way more fun when the experience is shared with a good friend
thanks for always being there marj!
