Next I finished a Marken Marker Mouse Fingercushion. I found this in an article about Marken Embroidery (an area of The Netherlands I think) in an old copy of Inspirations magazine. Sorry I can't tell you which one. This dear little mouse is a pincushion that you wear as a 'ring' on your left hand when you are stitching. Now how convenient is that! Well I'm not sure if it is truly comfortable to wear or not but it was fun to make. Unfortunately the Needlework Shop didn't have black faceted beads for the eyes so my Marker Mouse has red eyes! But isn't he cute.
And then guess what - a surprise package from my little sister. She sent me this for being such a wonderful big sister! Thanks heaps - I love it and it was a marvellous surprise. I've always wanted stork scissors so thanks for those and I love the colours of those silk threads. A wonderful box of goodies - I think you must have been reading my wishlist!!
Have a good night everyone.
