Cheesie and His Mouse House

This month's challenge on the Blogging Business Artisans team was brought to us by Duni of Peri Dot by Duni who suggests that we create something using a color that we would rarely incorporate into our creations.

Well, for me, that would be grey. Not so much because I don't like grey, but because I prefer to use cotton yarn for much of the crochet in my shop. And there just wasn't any grey cotton yarn out there. So the day that I was strolling through JoAnn's and spotted some grey cotton, my heart just went into overdrive! I snatched up the only skein there was (fortunately a 14 ouncer)!



For the challenge, I decided to make a little grey mouse, and added a little blue and yellow blanket (knowing that Blue Monday at Smiling Sally's was coming up).



Then I decided that little Cheesie needed a house and what could be a better house for a mouse than a wedge of cheese!!



Cheesie, of course, has eaten all the insides of the cheese so he has plenty of room for running about and cuddling in his favorite mousie blankie.  :)

You are incredibly talented and do such lovely work.
I think that Cheesie is absolutely darling and especially precious with all of the sweet accessories that you've made for him.

Grey is not a color I would think of to do a project either, but my grandson wanted some shark slippers so I made him some that look like they are eating his feet! So your cute mouse is adorable, little girls would like him better than little boys.

That's a lovely way to use grey (and yellow - the colour I'd have picked!). You made me laugh!

I actually saw a beautiful big blanket made by granny squares in grey and white. It was very tasty!
