CYOT latest blocks

Here are the latest Choose your own theme round robin I am in. The one on the right belongs to Becca and has a mouse theme. Isn't he cute? In this robin we each make a whole block for the participant in the theme that they chose. I made the block on the left. Mice we're kind of hard to find. I had some little buttons so used them to go from their little hole to a chunk of cheese. I then found a cute little picture of a mouse sleeping holding a pic of her mously love. Then I just decorated the block with various seam treatments. finally I found some mouse buttons on ebay and a charm in the scrapbooking section at Wal Mart so added them to the button cluster. I actually found some cute mouse charms on ebay but even though she said she mailed them on the 25th of May I have never received them. Frustrating, but need to go ahead and get the blocks in the mail on to the next person so will just use the charms on something else if they ever come in, or maybe will mail some to Rebecca later.



WOW--I love them! I wanna grow up and be just as good as you are :o)))

Too cute! The mice are darling. The seam treatment and embellishing is really pretty.

You made such a cute block! I just love the little line of mice to the cheese, but everything on the block is wonderful and contributes to the whole.

A Little About Me

Hi and Welcome! I am 50 years old, married with 2 girls Andrea and Crystal, and 3 grandchildren. A girl, Jesi who is 13 that we are raising and a boy, Christian, who is 6 and, lives with Mom. Andrew James or Peanut is 6months old and brother to Jesi. We live in a house built in 1897 that is not in the best of shape but we are working on it and we love it. It is a 2 story colonial style with big columns and a big wrap around front porch. We also have 6 cats, of which only part of are allowed in the house, and 5 dogs. A Momma dog and 4 puppies. She had 9, we gave one away, then they all came down with parvo. I lost 4 but was able to save 4. A heartrending experience but was just glad to be able to save any. No help from the vet as they want so much money but found some homeopathic remedies that actually worked. I also have a 7 month old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that is my baby. She goes everywhere with me, sleeps under the covers with me, and is just the cutest thing ever.
