Crocheted Punkin' Mouse

Here's another pumpkin critter that I seem to be addicted to making lately. This mouse is also 7" tall, but a lot fatter around the middle than the Punkin' Gizzy, because I stabilized her with additional popcorn kernels aside from the fiber fill. I knitted a long tail for her and attached it to the front. I think she turned out very cute too, if I may say so myself. Sometimes I surprise myself, especially since I didn't use a pattern for her either.

You can click on the photo that takes you to my Flickr account where I have pictures of her from different angles. I'm going to list her for sale in my shop, but Etsy's having issues right now so that I'll have to do it tomorrow.

It's almost Fall and you guys would not believe how nice and cool it was this morning. Gizzy and I had a very long and enjoyable walk. I could tell my boy was in a very good mood. I can't wait for it to get really chily ;-) Maybe I should do a jolly snowman to put me in the mood.

He is very cute - you did a nice job with the little touches.

Snow can't come soon enough for my pups, but I am in no hurry.

Adorable! That mouse is totally adorable.

I am very glad that the cooler temps have arrived to give you some relief from the summer heat. It's changing here too. Days are much cooler and nights even more so.

I can feel the shift happening once again. You can't stop it.

Have a great day - evening!!

This is the most adorable one you've done yet! And that my dear is saying a lot!! And you did it without a pattern too! WOW! i am down to one bluebird and I cannot bring myself to give the honeybee away! Every one loves their bluebirds -- they are super special; you are so talented! Excy is still having problems, in fact, we were warned he may need to go back in the hospital if things aren't getting better...sigh...things have surely not gone as expected!
