Woah. This, I have to say, is a little bit of a milestone for me. My 100th post on this blog. Have I really had that much to say over the past year-and-a-half? Apparently, I have. And I've had a blast doing it. When I started the blog, I wanted a place to write down… Continue reading The Hundredth
PENGUINS!!1!!1!!!! I love penguins. They're cute (for starters), they walk all silly on land AND they have ridiculously low drag in water. My fluid dynamics professor once said, 'If you want to lower the drag on a football, just throw it into the ocean and wait a million years until it evolves into a penguin'.… Continue reading Penguins!!
Recently, I've kind of been into brightly coloured things in a big way. And it seems to be manifesting itself as an obsession to create bright pillows. It started with the African Flowers pillow that I finished a few weeks ago. It took me an enormous amount of time to finish, considering that it's just… Continue reading Stripey and Flowery Pillow
A few weeks ago, a good friend of mine asked me to make his teddy bear (aka Sugarbear) a Christmas sweater. He was able to find a cute little Halloween sweater for Sugarbear at the Dollar Store (of all places) but Sugarbear wanted a festive one too. I was a tad nervous, since I've never… Continue reading A Sweater for Sugarbear
I've had a really nice week of not doing much. Now that my play is over, it's been so nice to have my evenings back. I got to catch up on my reading of crafty blogs, watch some tv shows (Glee started up again this week!), generally loaf around and work on some crochet projects!… Continue reading Some New Projects
While I've been happily working away at my Granny Stripe blanket in my spare time (see last post), lately I've also whipped up a new little amigurumi. It's a hippo! This little guy was specially requested, so I ended up using a body similar to my elephant pattern and coming up with a hippo head.… Continue reading It’s a Hippo!
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, 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!
Oh, the Happy Face Toy. What can I say? It has become infamous at our house. Happy Face Toy began when I decided to crochet a super quick toy for the kitties, hoping that they would play with it occasionally. Never could I ever have predicted the extent to which Happy Face Toy would be… Continue reading The Happy Face Toy
