Cat the Cat and Mouse the Mouse

Untitled

Hooray! I can start sharing some of my Christmas crochet makes! I made these two cuties to go with Mo Willems' book Cat the Cat Who Is That? I made Mouse the Mouse and Cat the Cat from the cat and mouse patterns in Mongoreto's etsy shop. (I've made quite a few of her patterns!)

The cat pattern is great, with a sweater that is easily customized (stripes, solid, stripes and solid...). I loved that the only pieces you sew on are the arms and the tail, which makes for a quick make!

And the mouse is just too stinkin' adorable. I think there were a few mistakes in the pattern with round counts, but I followed the pictures the best I could. A few extra or missing rows in the body or legs isn't going to be a huge deal.

I just loved making these!

Christmas Table

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! Christmas is always a busy time of year, and now that it is over, I've been enjoying not doing much at all... which has reminded me how much I have not done with the blog. So, please bear with me as I get back into the swing of things!

And I'll start with a few pictures of our Christmas table...

Happy Tuesday friends! Hope your week is going well so far! I wish I were as relaxed as Pete seems to be about the upcoming holiday!

Hey everyone! No snow here yet, but there is some some icy grass!

Have a fantastic day, and hope everyone's Christmas crafting is going well!
