Mad Hatter and Dormouse

I've been working on a teapot today.  The Dormouse is on it.  That was the last touch, putting a little mouse on the lid.  I hope that he makes it...though there are a couple of weak places.  I may add a little support there, somehow or another. 

And he has no clothes on at this point either.  Just his tail, tucked under his front leg while he has the other front leg holding his head he's lying on his side.  He's rather fat, so is just a big blob with a pointed head and ears.  Will do the eyes tomorrow, cause I want one of them to look closed, as if he's having trouble staying awake.

This teapot is for the "Tea Party" at BMCA for our Christmas show.  I've already made a Mad Hatter.  He's not a teapot.  He's just a rather large and silly figure.  He needed a dormouse too, however.

Wholeheartedness is a precious gift, but no one can actually give it to you. You have to find the path that has heart and then walk it impeccably....It's like someone laughing in your ear, challenging you to figure out what to do when you don't know what to do. It humbles you. It opens your heart.
