Crochet Minecraft!

Ha! So one day I was burnt out on flowers, and I wanted to make something different because it had been so long when my 15 year old son suggested a Minecraft Creeper. Hmm...interesting, very simple design, why not?!


I started one evening and finished early the next morning, woke my son up for school, he opened his eyes to his completed Creeper and was delighted! So delighted that he took the Creeper to school with him.


I never imagined all these teenage boys would be so crazy about a crocheted doll, who knew right?


After making the Creeper, I made my son a pig, which made him giggle like a little kid. Then an unsheared grey sheep.


I hope to make more of these for my son, it's about time I get to crochet something just for him LOL!

It gets hot and miserable in Arkansas, so I was inspired one day to create necklaces based on fun drinks!
A root beer float, pina colada, lemonade, cherry limeade, and kiwi strawberry.

My daughter loves this book so much, so I accepted my husband's challenge to make this bib, I think it turned out cute! My daughter is waay to big to wear this, so I think I'll make her a blanket in the same picture (it is from the cover of the book).



Hey Diddle Diddle crochet baby mobile

I made this for a friend of mine and she loved it. It was fun to make, a challenge to create the dog and the cow, but it turned out cute I think. :)

You must listen to the song to get what I have done here :)



The Fool On The Hill

From The Magical Mystery Tour, an extremely emotional song, gut wrentching, I thought I would try to capture that feeling, so far the strongest response has been myself, and my brother:



Ladies and gentelmen, meet The Beatles!!!!!!!

2009-06-26T21:38:20.792-07:00

I have loved The Beatles since 1978, when my father gave me my first records and record player. The first 45 he gave me was "Yesterday" and from then on I was hooked. By the age of 7 or 8, I had already worn out not one, but 2 Sgt Peppers' Lonely Hearts Club Band albums.

I grew up with The Beatles, not like my father did, but in a sense, sort of :)

Their music has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, whenever I hear them, it feels like "home" it feels like "me".

Here is muy tribute to them:

Strawberry Fields Forever (one of my favorite songs of all time):

At first he was a challenge, figuring out how to do the shape, but it came along a lot easier than I thought it would be. I may do eyelids, not sure yet. Here is the progress so far:

I have been working on the Spongebob characters for a friend of mine. So far I made Spongebob and Mr Krabs, and have started on Patrick.



A mobile for an old friend

So an old friend of mine from waaay back in high school is expecting. Her sister sent me a link to a mobile that she really liked but the colors were wrong. She asked if I could create something similar in the correct colors.

I think it is so darling and I would love to make more. It wasn't really hard to make, just tedious putting it all together and wrapping the yarn around the circle and ring at the top. But overall, I think my friend will be delighted.
