I've been wanting to try amigurumi crochet for ages now.
Lucy sent me a link to this great etsy shop - where I purchased a couple of patterns for a baby seal and some gorgeous Matryoshka dolls.
Last night the boys went to watch some old timers play football and once Minx was in bed I got cracking.
By the time the boys got back , Sammy the Seal was ready to meet them. Minx found him waiting next to her bed this morning :)
Lucy has been
nagging constantly asking for a photo of him - so here he is...
Awww - quite a good attempt at cute Ruby :)
(If you fancy having a go at amigurumi there are loads of links to free patterns here)
This little guy is for my sister-in-law's birthday....his friend from a few posts ago accidentally jumped into a parcel that got sent to the Locket woman!
Don't worry folks. Further investigation revealed it is in fact some chocolate she was saving for later!
Here's a little something for the weekend:
Thanks to my friend Helen for sending me a load of these in an email today - lots of blog fodder!!
I have a meeting at work on Monday, after which I hope to have some good news about a little change that could give me more time for crafting....and blogging of course!
Got a rather nice crisp white chilling in the
emergency wine chiller freezer to celebrate the fact that it's Friday :)
