Finished up this rowdy crew yesterday. You can find them in the shop now!
I am not, by any definition of the word expert, an expert crocheter. But my ma helped me out semi-following these directions, and I got some help from this youtube lady here. After just a couple minutes of watching, I was crocheting so much faster than her (if you watch the video, this would be a joke).
I added a couple more holiday card designs to the shop, including this little owl. A great little Thanksgiving craft to work on between turkey and pie!
I thought it might be fun to commemorate our first home in tiny replica form. It is the house we bought together, and our first home where we share the same last name, so I imagine it will always have a very special place in our hearts.
All these guys will probably end up in the shop, unless someone snatches them up first!
I agree that it is a tiny bit earlier to start thinking about holidays, but good DIY projects need the proper planning! Handmade items are worth some extra effort, and are also a good way to spend these new dark evenings. After dinner it looks like bedtime now, so its either sleep, or keep my hands busy so my eyes don’t automatically shut.
I have some new holiday pattern cards in the shop. They are kits, so you can make the cards yourself! They come patterned and everything, so they are ready to go once you get them. Just stitch them up, add some names at the bottom, and you got yourself some fancy holiday greetings.
It looks like he is trying to hide those strawberry candies for himself. I don’t blame him. They are my favorite too. Find him new in my shop this week.
This is probably old news, blah blah, but it was actually cold enough to wear boots yesterday. It was rainy and dreary and cold, and things that a fall day should be. I did yoga to warm up in the morning, and we had homemade soup and warm crusty bread for dinner. I hope it stays fall again tomorrow.
While the rain falls, I have been sewing up a storm inside. My shop should be filled with a whole new class of new guys soon!
There are some new Halloween animals in my shop! Super scary too! Terrifying!
The black bat is ready to carve a pumpkin.
The legendary chupacabra is not as hungry for blood as he is for candy corn.
This orange guy was a special order through the shop. He happens to be a very seasonal color, but also, apparently, he is desperately needed to complete a Halloween costume requiring an orange raccoon.
From the clues available, I assume the end result will be something a little like this. I guess my raccoon does make an ok stand in.
