How very nice!

Heidi of Crabby Gabby had purchased my Except a Mouse pattern from me earlier this year and mentioned she was excited to give it a try.

She emailed me a few days ago with the pictures from the completed piece, and told me she really liked the pattern. Such nice things she had to say I was blushing. Then I saw her pics and OMG she did such a adorable, wonderful job that I had to show you all. I am actually embarrassed to show you the shot from the original being it has been so long and I have grown so much as a doll maker but I want you to appreciate the special "touch" that Heidi has placed on this creation. So with a gulp and a grin I show you mine, then with Pride and glee I show you Heidi's. Thank you Heidi for sharing with me. LOVE IT!

That turned out great. I hope I can make it next year. I think I would like one to keep. I love the prim look it has.

Happy new year, Pea! I hope it is a good one for all of us!



Pea said...

Thank you so much Jenny. Heidi stashed one, I wish I had pennies I would steal it from her. LOL
I love the look of it too.

YES! May you be blessed during the New Year!!! gotta get cabbage and beans for tomorrow or it won't be a good one as the Irish would say. beans and cabbage I don't like but it supposed to mean money in the pot so I will eat it! LOL

Doreen said...

Pea, they are both wonderful! I am definitely going to get this pattern from you. I love it. I bet you could adjust it and make it for other times as well. What about an ice skate and the two mice are building their home inside the skate and instead of passing packages..they are passing home furnishing...lol

Joyous New Year to You and Yours!

Heidi said...

Both creations are adorable! Doreen had a good idea on how to modify it. I've never heard about beans and cabbage. It doesn't sound very good though. I'm sending wishes for health, happiness and prosperity for you in the New Year!

Carla said...

It turned out wonderful! Yours is equally as nice. Beans and cabbage sound great. I don't have time though. Hubby in hospital and have to go visit.

They are both Adorable she did a wonderful job as do you always love your work :)
Have a Happy New year may the new one bring you lots of wonderful things.


Pea said...

Ah thank you Doreen. How sweet of you to say.
Yes, there are lots of ideas. I did the spring version already. It is cute but not as sweet as this one.
Happy New Year to you as well my dear.

Pea said...

Well thank you much dear. I like cabbage but not beans really. I was hoping for baked beans and well i guess it is just cabbage. DH and I will eat it. The kid won't. LOL
The same to you for the New Year!

Pea said...

Dearest Carla,
I am so sorry to hear about your hubby. I do hope that he is returning to health and will be home with you in a wink. Be blessed dear one!

Pea said...

Thank you ever so kindly for your comments. It warmed my heart. Right back at you my dear.
Blessings for a wonderful new year!

Hi Pea !
Happy New Year !!!

Heidi did a wonderful job on your pattern ! It's adorable.

I think this is the first pattern I bought from you. I have only made the mouse so far. Now I wish I had made the whole set !

In one of your comments you mention the foods to eat for the New Year.. in this area, it's saurkraut and pork, in some parts of south it's black eyed peas and I think maybe turnip greens ???
Different areas have different traditions.

Blessings and hugs,

I love them both!! I must remember to get this pattern from you in time for Christmas next year. It is so sweet!


Pea said...

Thank you Heidi,
Sorry for the late reply I have been working and I am loosing my way. LOL
Have the best year ever!

Pea said...

Hello Linda,
even after all these years this pattern still sells well. I guess I do good now and then.
Yes, the irish eat cabbage and beans. leaves of cabbage - dollars and beans are coins. LOL
I know everyone has their traditions. Just we are irish- go figure? LOL that we eat this. Not liking it too much but tradition and all will do it.
Blessings for all the best,Pea
