notes from a small island

Collection

These are part of an enormous collection known as The Jurby Mice, some are knitted, some sewn, by a group in the north of the island - I think there must be at least 200 mice, possible more. They make up a number of tableaux of local life over the year, and are currently on an island-wide tour to raise funds for the Coronary Care Unit of our general hospital.

These are labelled as representing February, which is odd, as they show the Parish Walkers being given refreshments as they get close to Jurby church, where they will log in before setting off to the next of the island's churches about 12 miles on, the walk actually takes place in June...

But it was the one of the photos I took that showed most mice -

And because they are so cute I couldn't resist adding another -

mice miners

Those are mouse miners.

If you want to see more there are more in my album here on Flickr.

How wonderful! They're adorable.
Aren't they fun!
They're adorable! And what a perfect and very different response to the prompt.
Aren't they fun! It only occurred to me that they were a collection this morning!
I love the miners!

But what are the mice mining for? Is it a way into the cheese shop?
I think it might be - perhaps it is actually a cheese mine!
What a cool collection! :o)
They really are - I was most amused by them - whereas D-d said so many stuffed mice in the same place was a bit spooky!
What fun.
I think so - although D-d said she thought there were about 100 more mice than she thought she could cope with in one place!
Those are adorable! I like them! Very sweet idea.
They are really sweet - and there must be so much work gone into them.
