Pincushion mice

One Christmas one of my friends gave these little mouse pincushions as  gifts.
She then agreed to teach us how to make them, including the hardanger on their backs.
These three little fellows have been sitting in their little box waiting to be completed for over a year, so last night was their night.

It is only a little finish, but they sure were UFOs.

Now they are ready to go to their new homes to be loved and used.

never thought of small finishes they are gorgeous. Perhaps if I finish a 'small' I might get encouragement to finish a big. Off to be a mighty mouse (I hope)
