Phew, I feel like I had a whirlwind week! But it was very enjoyable. I had a nice visit from my Mom and brother. Brother slept over a couple of nights so we had some nice, relaxing, just-the-brother-and-the-sister time. Me and Mom went to see Miss Saigon. (It was sooo good. Especially since I have… Continue reading Pile-Up of Updates!
So, I just loved the movie How to Train Your Dragon. I loved it so much, I had to see it twice. As soon as I saw it, though, I thought two things: 1) Toothless the dragon looks and acts EXACTLY like my cat, Boo. E.x.a.c.t.l.y. 2) I must crochet a Toothless. I have actually… Continue reading How to Crochet your Dragon
Well, there's no snow storm ... and there's not a complete polar bear yet, but there will be soon! This is the project I've been working on lately. But it's been going reeeeeally slow because I've had a bunch of other things on the go. Now that I've got the body the way I want… Continue reading A Polar Bear in a Snow Storm
Well, I finally wrote up the pattern to my hyper-emotional blorb which I now turned into a pacman ghost! Did you know that each pacman ghost had its own name? Crazy. Wikipedia told me that. Oh, and in case it's been a while since you've played Pacman, their colours are red, pink, blue and orange.… Continue reading Pacman Ghost Pattern!
I admit, I am a latecomer to the Totoro-love party. Having just seen Toy Story 3 on Friday (a must see movie), I was intrigued by one of Bonnie's toys - it was Totoro! (Aside: it turns out that Totoro ended up in the movie because John Lasseter is a huge Totoro fan!) I knew… Continue reading To-to-ro, Totoro!
Let's start with the small, shall we? Here is my newest pattern - Teddy Bears! This was what I was hinting at in my last post. These little guys are really fun to make - hence, the making two of them. The pattern to make a Teddy Bear is up at my shop now, if… Continue reading Crochet Bears Small and … Not So Small
Well, I certainly don't... But hopefully that will change soon, because I signed up for an account today! And I started a fan page, as well, for my amigurumi making and pattern selling addiction. I'm still learning the ropes (I have a ways to go), but it would be great if you could check it… Continue reading Facebook much?
He is, isn't he? You'd think he'd get tired of smiling that big all the time, but, no. He doesn't. I sketched this little guy a while ago. I was going to name him 'Hyper-Emotional Blorb'. When my bf saw him, though, he said that it looked just like a Pacman ghost. And, you know,… Continue reading He’s *so* Happy
Well, I suppose he isn't that silly. It's not like he's prancing around with a tape recorder up his nose (or his brother's nose for that matter). The truth is, I can't seem to think of a better name for this kitty that I made... I have to credit my brother entirely for the idea… Continue reading A Silly Cat
No, I haven't gone on a crazy-crochet-vehicle kick lately (although it certainly looks like I have...) In fact, I made this little car for my cousin's son (who I am ashamed to admit I have not yet met in his year and a half of existence) and who I will see tomorrow. I hear he… Continue reading Vroom Vroom
