WHO can resist?

Well the addiction to the Houtz book continues!! I just CAN'T resist these little critters!!!

I was talking to another tatter who has (hopefully only temporarily) fallen by the wayside the other day. Not inspired to design or to even pick up shuttles. I suggested that the poor lost soul get a copy of this book and play with it. 

I don't know what it is about making the bobbles/baubles but they're relaxing and challenging at the same time. I sooooo wanted one in grey like the Houtz brothers have in their book. So, rather than start on another crazy idea I made this guy!!!

  5. Now I'm visualising cute little mice clinging to curtains in your home, hiding behind doors - you can put them everywhere! You don't need to tat any bugs, the geckos will eat those.

  7. I can see why you are addicted to these little fellows they are so realistic. The pattern looks so so difficult though

  8. This critter is just adorable and I agree there is no way this should be given to a cat
