My Pin Keep Swap!

I entered Wendy's, Ravenwood Whimzies, Pin Keep Swap again! I'm new to making these little jewels and I'm loving it! I got Cyndy of Crafty Stitchers as my partner and WHOOP, WHOOP got me some cuties from her!
You can go over to Crafty Stitchers and check out what I sent her.....but I'll also show you here!
I LOVED making this sweet little thing! I got the original mouse pattern from Kim at Old Road Primitives (ORP). I got some of my ideas from Carol over at Buttermilk Creek Farm. Carol makes WONDERFUL Meeces!
Here's my little Tillie!
Tillie the Cheesemaker! She doesn't waste time with mouse traps!
I placed the pin cushion in the basket but you could always stick more in Tillie.....OUCH!!!
I have a couple of these boxes just sitting around. This could be used for 'extra' storage!
Her tail is made from jute.
SO MUCH FUN! I've got one more on my table to finish. Not even sure how much something like this would sell for so I'll have to research my Prim friends on Etsy.
Speaking of Prim friends, the fabulous OFG Team, Old Farmhouse Gathering) is launching a new celebration on Monday! WONDERFUL new creations from our super talented Team! You might want to stop by and read our Funny Bunny Springtime story that some of us made up! It's to be continued until Easter!
I'll link up the picture on my right sidebar come Monday and show you some more goodies,  so.....
Stay Tuned!!!!

Now those are works of art. I also participated in this swap, however, my poor little keep wasn't nearly as creative as these. I need to step it up. Fantastic work!
