Country Mouse

The Country Mouse will be heading out to the UK shortly!!
Since he is over 6 inches tall... I'm not sure I'd want to find him either in the garden or my house!!
Lili decided his name is Henry the Country Mouse.... and he left this morning!

Here's what  The Country Mouse's new owner sent!!

The Country Mouse has packed his bags
He's on his way to the U K
He's coming to the shire of Hereford
Where he is going to stay
His new home is at Mousehole
Where all the mice there live
He'll be cared for with lots of attention
And plenty of love we give
So thank you Bettina
Your skills are very great
We love your mice so much
The next one we await.

Des Moines Doll and Bear Show

What a great show!! Our 4 am drive from Kansas City to Des Moines, Iowa was quick and uneventful. We watched the planet ( probably Venus) glow on the Eastern side!! It was cloudy enough that there were no stars but the planet glowed through no the less! There was a huge red sunrise just before 7 am!
We unpacked the bears and set up in one of the State Fairgrounds buildings. At 8 am the early birds started arriving. By 3 pm 13 bears or friends had found new homes... as did lots of needle felted eggs! Packing up to go home was so much easier!!!
Bob took pictures with my birthday Kindle Fire and as soon as we figure out how to do it.. I will post a table picture!!

I  finished a really large hollow needle felted egg which will probably have a duckling inside last night... but the duckling isn't quite done. I will add it later.

The Teddy Bear Extravaganza has been going on.... I took the laptop to my son's house where we have been prepping and painting his bedroom!  Such a difference. The room was dark greeny brown with a top border of toile wallpaper... it's now borderless and painted a"French pastry" yellow. The room looks so much larger and brighter.
Every so often I would check the laptop to see how the Extravaganza was going... but must admit the room changes were more interesting!!!
