With all the crazy polar freezing and arctic blasts that are going on across the country this week–it seems odd that I would be rejoicing in the small but lovely smattering of snow that we got here in our neck of the woods.
I seriously can’t help myself.
We are a four season kinda place and we’re very proud of our snow…
if we can get it to fall, that is.
I check the weather every night before bedtime and then again in the morning–you know–in case something has changed while I wasn’t looking, all in the hopes that there will be just a single snowflake on the radar.
Yeah, it’s that big of a deal to me.
This year, even after praying our guts out–
we still had no snow for Christmas.
It was criminal weather behavior and someone should go to jail.
Somehow, we survived that trial and finally–at long last, we had a full day and night of snow. Enough to actually stick this time.
If this keeps up, I might be persuaded to drop the charges against the weather man.
I’ve posted about my cute little crocheted Pokemon–but I thought it would be a good idea to get them all together in one place.
Snorlax was the very first Pokemon that I ever crocheted. I wasn’t really good at it to begin with but Miss Chompy didn’t care. She loved him anyway.
Then along came Diglett for Mr. Beckham. He went through a few revisions before we were satisfied.
Lily wanted anything that looked like a cat so she chose Skitty.
Vaporeon was next, for a friend. It felt really funny mailing this on away–almost like it was a favorite pet or something. But fear not, she has a happy home now.
This guy, is a unique take on the Pokemon Umbreon. The little girl asked for some specific changes in color and she wanted a white mane too. Poof! As you wish.
Magoo asked for a classic standard–good, old Pikachu. Took three days to get his eyes right. Sheesh.
And lastly—so far–we have Squirtle! I have a feeling that I’ll be making a few more of this one as he seems to be everyone’s favorite.
Most of these little critters were made last year from patterns I got from Googling the characters. Of course, I have to make my own changes to most of them so that they look as much like the real Pokemon as possible.
