A belated Valentine!

Hello to all!  Belated Valentine greetings - hope you all had a lovely day, in every sense of the word.  I continue to be busy with my mice - stitching them, and creating new little characters - one of whom is shown below.  The cookbook is also coming along, slowly but surely - and I already have plans for another one, when this one is done.
People who are into stitching may be interested to know there is an interview with me in the March 2013 issue of Cross Stitch Collection magazine - and apparently my mice also make an appearance in the article, as I have already had quite a few requests for catalogs from people who read the article. So, many thanks to Catherine Hood, the editor of the magazine, for featuring me and my work.
This little mouse is another Scottish one, called Mhairi - she has a little handknitted beret, and carries a silver heart charm.  Next I think I need to make her a little friend called Hamish - he will, of course, need to be in a kilt, so that will take a little bit of planning and design!
Best wishes to all who read this, please feel free to leave me comments - I would love to hear from you.
