Pilgrim Mice Now Available ~ and a tease of what's next . . .

I am so pleased to tell you that I have new mice available!

Just in time for your Autumn décor.

This Pilgrim Mice set includes both mice, 
a tiny harvest basket, an itsy-bitsy pumpkin

and this vintage turkey.

As always, layaway is available!

Here's a tease of what I'm using as an
accessory for my next Christmas Mouse. 
It's amazing what you can find to re-purpose
for mice in the hardware store.

 Any guesses?

Mouse on a Hog?

It seems like ages since I’ve had anything new for sale ~ but believe me I’ve been busy!   And some of that busy has been shopping.  Mr. Cobblestone and I were at our local home improvement store over the weekend shopping for new doors (finally).  As luck would have it, this particular store  had just set up their special holiday section.  

Ah yes, the return of The Enchanted Forest.
You must understand that The Enchanted Forest has been a part of our holiday tradition going back to when our children were young.  So much so, that I felt obligated to snap a pic to tease our daughter who now lives out of town. 

And of course I had to stop and look for any ornaments that would be perfect mouse sized accessories.  And what did I find? 

I found this motorcycle! 

Now ~ how could I pass that up!  And look how well it fits!

This mouse is destined to be one of my Pilgrims, but he does give you the idea of how another mouse will look seated there. 
Oooooo now I have to go through my fabric stash and find some black leather.

I've been trick-or-treating. Have you?

Just a reminder that the
is going on now through Oct 31st. 

Here's the treat I nabbed for myself from
Artist Adrianne Kinsella of kissinglass. 

 I just fell in love with this tiny votive ~ and especially the teeny tiny ladybug hiding on the back.

You can find more from Adrianne and many other artists at www.halloweenstudiotour.com.

Stitch, stitch, stitch . . . poke, poke, poke . . . pedal, pedal, pedal . . .

Hello friends!  I apologize for being away from my blog for so long, but as stated in the title, I’ve been quite busy sewing, needle felting and yes, taking an occasional break for a bike ride with Mr. Cobblestone ~ and enjoying our Autumn landscapes.
Our yard is showing signs of white! 
No, not my beloved snow, no yet, but we do have  a white clematis blooming now
and my irises too!

I must mention the lovely ride we took earlier this week.  The longest one so far, for me.  We went from our home all the way down to the Lake Michigan lake front ~ a distance of 30 miles.  And it was a delightful day ~ all the trees were in their brilliant Autumn splendor.
As for sewing, I’m afraid I have nothing to show you today.  All the items I am currently working on are destined for the Holiday Bazaar Online show Nov 5 and 6 ~ and you know how it goes with shows ~ no previews before the show begins.  Though I do believe I will be able to give you a tease starting Saturday Oct 15th.  I’ll post it here if permitted.  I can tell you there will be caroling bears and mice, an ice skating bear, a bear with a baby doll and a few potbelly Santa mice.   
Before I go I do have two more photos to share with you which I received from one of my collectors.  It is always such fun to see what my mice have been up to since they’ve left my home.

Aren’t they darling!

It's time to go Trick-or-Treating!

I've just taken a peek at some of the great art being offered in this show and it is amazing!  Not only can you find cool decorating ideas, recipes, ghost stories, etc, you can 'meet' some new artists and grab up some wonderful Halloween/Autumn art for your collection.  There are faery houses, jewelry, magic wands, dolls, art glass, bears and even a couple of mice you may recognize.

The show is in support of Bat Conservation International ~ and you know if we help the bats, they in turn will help us by consuming those nasty mosquitoes!

Hope you take a moment to enjoy the show ~ and there's even a door prize!  You can find me along the path near the bottom left hand side of the village hanging out with the skull candlestick. :)

Here are the items I have available in conjunction with this show:

I also wanted to let you know that Cobblestone Creations is now offering
Gift Certificates ~ just in time for the holidays!

My studio is filled with Holiday items destined for the Who's Who in Bearmaking Show coming up Nov 5th and 6th.

Hopefully I will have new things to offer on my website very soon as well.
