  6. PRECIOUS SUSAN! I was thinking of you and all my dear Euro friends as I ate my dinner at 6:00pm, meaning you already had entered into 2013 six hours before me..

    Your world is precious, colorful and full of great success and more promises to come. BRAVO!!! Anita

    1. Happy New Year to you Debbie...I hope it's a wonderful year for you and your family!....The little Christmas mouse was based on the Cornish Mice pattern but in some ways she's quite different...I'm having a think about her as a pattern as I've had a lot of requests so I shall see what I can come up with!...x

  42. Precious SUSAN!

    GOOD MORNING and thank you so much for your wonderful comment on my post. I embrace the colors and vibrant creativity I see here that you create. May you enjoy this day; it is very windy here today and I suspect it is cold where you are! LOVE! Anita

  43. Oh My! I just happened onto your blog yesterday and was so enchanted that I read my way through your archives. I was really taken with Lady P and she appeared in my dreams last night! No, really!
    Anyway, I'm absolutely in love with Bluebell! I'm not in a knitting phase right now, but I hope to be in one soon. Right now, it's all about decluttering and organizing. When I am knitting again, Bluebell is on my "To Make" list. Hope you are having a bright and happy 2013 so far!
