Well, like I said in my art journal, my recent obsession is Amigurumi. I have completed several projects and have orders for more.
The first up is a cat I crocheted for my friend Teresa's birthday present.. I used her favorite color - red. It turned out cute. I was going to make a flower for her "hair" but it was too big for her head. Teresa called it the cat's cabbage instead. Teresa was very happy.
Second is another hippo (Easy Crochet Critters from Lions Brand). I know, I am getting tired of them also but it turned out really cute. The colors are neon. I crocheted this for a lady who works with my cousin Liz. Liz said that the lady got it for her granddaughters birthday but decided to keep it for herself. Cute!
Third, are two of the bunnies - one blue, one pink (the pattern is a freebie from Stephanie Jessica Lau). I crocheted these for our church's plant, bake, and craft sale on Easter Saturday. It took me a week to finish the pink one (I was easily distracted) and 1 full day to finish the blue one. The pink bunny sold almost immediately at the back sale but the blue one didn't sale until the end. But, I have two orders for yellow bunnies from the sale. I am presently working on them.
Fourth, are the lovebirds from Lions Brand yarn (freebie pattern). They are so cute but I think they need feet or I need to make a nest for them. These are for me.
The last one is a lime green hippo just for me. Well, I had to make one for myself since everyone else has one.
Thank you for stopping by.

Here are two of the twelve pieces for the Lizzie Kate Christmas Spirit Double Flip. I finished one each month. I have almost completed Cookies for March. I am using DMC floss on specialty fabric.
Lizzie Kate's Flora McSample Farm Sampler Snippet. I stitched this on regular linen with DMC flosses. I loved this pattern. The sheep and pig are really cute. Besides it has a sunflower (my favorite).
This is the afghan I crocheted for Hobbie. I used zebra print yarn. The pattern was a single cluster pattern that repeated. The original pattern had fringe. But, since I made it for a guy, I didn't think he would like it. So I made up the border. I did an single crochet for the first round. Round two was a double crochet in the first single crochet, single crochet, skip stitch, then double crochet around. The third round I did a front post double crochet, chain 1 for the next row. Then the last row was a single crochet in every double crochet and chain 1 spot. I finished it today at 5 pm. I sent it home with Jennifer. I hope Hobbie likes it.
Finally, my art project # 8. The question is what is your current obsession. Mine at the moment is Amigurumi. I love crocheting animals for my friends and family. I have actually sold a few of them. I am making myself a lime green hippo right now. I still have to crochet for Tucker and Patrick.
My main focus at the moment is trying to finish my dissertation. I have to finish this year. I spent all spring break working on it . I went to the coast and stayed at the condo by myself. I did this so I wouldn't be disturbed or I wouldn't find a distraction.
I hope to post soon. Thanks for stopping by,
