It’s a thing, I guess? I created something that has fans. I’m kind of in awe of this.
I went into Google Maps to get the address of the mouse hole to send to someone who wanted to know exactly where it is, and discovered that someone has actually added Wakehurst Mouse Hole to Google Maps as a “tourist attraction,” and it currently has a 5-star rating! How about THAT! It’s an actual London landmark now.
Remember when I made a Hermione Grangermouse for a woman who contacted me because she really wanted to give a mouse to her daughter for her birthday? I did it in exchange for a donation to Little Village, the charity I volunteer for.
She recently sent me this message:
Also, last weekend a different woman and her daughter came to my door, and they gave me these:
They handed me this letter, and explained that they love the mouse hole, and had told a relative who lives in Wales about it, and she made these Welsh mice to send to me.
SO sweet! And honestly, they are just too cute. That’s proper needle felting right there, so much better than what I can make! They are now visiting the Wakehurst Mouse Hole.
And finally, remember when I held a contest to win a custom mouse, to raise money for women’s charities?
The winner, whose name is Marly, decided on a superhero mouse, which was fun to make for her. Meet Mighty Marly Mouse:
Faster than a speeding bulldog! More powerful than a steel mouse trap! Able to leap Victorian boot scrapers in a single bound!
