Calvin's Mice!

 Happy Sunday!
Calvin was so mad I was stitching mice I had to do something so he doesn't kill me in my sleep :) Just kidding ..

 ***Please remember if you copy my finishing ideas that you be considerate and give a link to my blog or facebook page..****
 any way I finished stitching these cute mice yesterday and I had one last Halloween piece I had bought at Walmart and I think it is perfect!
 Right now I have it hanging on the powder room door but I think I will put it on the back of my front door ..
I wrapped Halloween colored berries around the wreath ..
 I cut the welcome sign off the wreath ..it was held on with wire and attached the cat with hot glue to the wreath.. I mounted the stitching on sticky board ..I mounted black and orange polka dot fabric on sticky board ..before I glued them together I added a torn ruffle of orange and black gingham ..I glued the back of the polka dot covered sticky board to the wreath and  added 2 bows and more berries to the sides. I also made a bow for the cat and took off the burlap one it came with ..
This is Field Mouse Hallow from With Thy Needle and Thread
 The classic Colorworks color floss I used .. I used  28 count light grey tea/coffee dyed monaco ..I left out the stars and moon and added some more of the little eggshell colored designs and another sprig of bittersweet ..
