Sleeping Mouse

Today I'd like to share one of my plastic canvas projects with you.  While I enjoy working with plastic canvas it takes a while to complete a project.  Especially when you're babysitting your granddaughter and all you want to do is get down on the floor and play with her.  😍
 
After a couple weeks of working on this piece I finally completed it the other night.  This is another piece in the Christmas themed Martinsville collection.  A while back I shared the first piece, the church, here.
 
For this piece I decided that I didn't want to create all the toys and blanket with canvas.  So instead I used fabric and miniatures that I've collected from the after Christmas clearance sales.  I have two drawers full of miniatures and yet I still buy them because who can resist a good clearance sale, and because I never know what projects I'll use them on.  And while the canvas toys for this piece were cute I like the look using the miniatures better.
 
Now that this one is complete it's time to decide which one I'll stitch up next.  I still haven't found the choo choo train - the last piece I need for this set, but I'm still searching.  Until then I just keep plugging away, making the ones that I do have.
