Mousletoe and her cake!

Hi everyone.  Haven't been doing too much of anything this week - just one of those weeks when time seems to get away, and things get left undone.  But, I did manage to complete another new little mouse - a Christmas one again, called Mousletoe;  Cinnamon, the little baking mouse is one of my most popular creations, so I thought it would be nice to have a holiday version, with her Christmas cake, all decked out with holly, berries and gold ribbon.

She's fun and festive - and is already on her way to a magazine in the UK which will, hopefully feature her in one of the Christmas issues!  Of course if anyone wants to order her now, just send me a email - she is also available with a green dress and red shawl.
Hope everyone has a good week - be happy and enjoy the weekend!

After a long silence. . .

Hello to all.  I can't believe it is more than 3 weeks since I last did a post!  Anyway, the book is finally finished - except for last minutes tweaks and changes, hopefully - and after taking a few days off to catch up with myself, I am now back to my various creative plans.  (I am already planning two new cookbooks - very much in the early stages, though.)
Also back to the mice, and although it seems strange, I am working on a few sample Christmas mice, to send to various publications in the hope that they might be featured in holiday issues.  I am thinking of some new little characters, and also creating a couple of snow mice, which were very popular with my customers last year.  Below is a picture of Frosty the snow mouse - it was great fun knitting his little hat and scarf!

Once again I have, unfortunately had a couple of messages from people who say they did not receive the catalogs they had requested, or that I did not receive their orders.  This is obviously annoying all round, but I do ask that if you send an order, or request a catalog, and receive no feedback from me, please either email me again, or leave a comment, either here or on my Facebook page - so that I am aware of the problem and can do my best to rectify it!
Please share my little mice pictures - I love to see them popping up all over the net!  Hope everyone is having a happy and peaceful weekend.  Blessings!  Gail xx
