Little Owl Ornaments and the Pattern

For a number of years I’ve given my grandchildren Christmas ornaments. Recently I’ve crocheted them and with fifteen grandchildren this is no small undertaking. In previous years I’ve crocheted Icicle Boys and Girls, Little Christmas Trees, Santas, Snowmen, Little Stockings, and Matryoshka Dolls. I began the little owls in late August. Good thing too because I made… Continue reading Little Owl Ornaments and the Pattern

One Little Bunny Finds a New Home

I’ve made a number of little bunnies now, all based (more or less) on Mo’s lovely Angie Bunny pattern.  The bunnies I’ve recently made (so far!) are sitting together in a basket on the work table in my craft room but today I brought them outside for some fresh air! They seem to be quite… Continue reading One Little Bunny Finds a New Home

Dolls, Bunnies, and a Bad Hair Week

I mentioned in a recent blog post that I’ve been occupied with bunny making recently. I made 8, or is it 9 or 10 of the little cuties, as well as dresses and summer outfits; way more clothes than there were bunnies to wear them. So I decided I would make some little dolls, as… Continue reading Dolls, Bunnies, and a Bad Hair Week

Bunnies and More Bunnies

Little bunnies.  I cannot stop making them. I am almost producing little crochet bunnies as abundantly as the real live ones reproduce in my backyard. And while the real ones can be cute I don’t think they’re nearly as cute as these, not to mention the fact that mine are not making a nuisance of… Continue reading Bunnies and More Bunnies

Little Icicle Boys and Girls: The Pattern

I introduced you to the little icicle boys and girls earlier. Now I want to share the pattern with you. It  is a straight forward pattern that I don’t think will be difficult to follow. The ornaments are crocheted from the bottom tip of the icicle up, crocheted in rounds as amigurumi is done. The… Continue reading Little Icicle Boys and Girls: The Pattern

Little Icicle Boys and Girls

I cannot believe October is almost gone. Where did it go? This is the longest I’ve ever gone without posting. I’ve been busy, lost in Creative Land. I have so many irons in the fire it isn’t even funny. It’s that time of the year when Santa’s elves get busy and although I’m far from… Continue reading Little Icicle Boys and Girls

A Little Doll and a Little Yellow House

One of my granddaughters celebrated her 9th birthday recently, and what could possibly be better for a birthday gift than a little crocheted doll? Cecilia already has a small bear, a little bunny and a mouse that I crocheted for her over the last year or two, but this would be the first doll. Ever… Continue reading A Little Doll and a Little Yellow House

Adventures in Amigurumi

About 2 years ago I ventured into the world of amigurumi. Well, that’s not completely accurate. Before amigurumi was called amigurumi, way back in the day, I actually did crochet a Nativity set, consisting of Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus in a manger, an angel, a shepherd, and a few sheep. The pattern included wise men… Continue reading Adventures in Amigurumi

A Tale of Violet

About a year and a half ago I was into some monkey business…crocheting monkeys that is. I made two of them; sweet adorable little monkeys for two of my granddaughters. I used this pattern to make them. I named the first monkey Ivy Anastasia. Oh, she was so adorable and my granddaughter Libby loved her.… Continue reading A Tale of Violet
