Pokemon Crochet

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.

What should I make next?

Stained Glass Nativity

I finally finished my latest puzzle and I have to say….

I’m pretty sure it’s my favorite Christmas puzzle of all time.

The colors are so bright and happy and the finished project is positively stunning!

We took the decorations down a couple of weeks ago–

but I still can’t make myself put this last thing away.

It makes me smile every time I walk past it.

Someone asked me why I didn’t just glue it all together and hang it on the wall–but I can’t.

This puzzle is going to be worn out from being put together over and over and over again.

New Year’s Eve 2018-2019

 

On New Year’s Eve while the rest of the world is banging pans and watching that big shiny ball drop, we’re doing this stuff.

You know, hanging out and eating the most glorious food.

Fondue to be exact–cheese AND chocolate, because why on earth would you want to choose between the two?

Of course, we only invite the very best people.

We have chatty people.

We have munchie people.

We have video game people…

 

We have horn blowing people.

and people caught at a bad moment..

Heck, we even have…

… Babushka with us tonight. Heh, heh.

 

But best of all–we’ve got some of the sweetest, squishy-est baby lips on the face of the earth.

We’re lucky ducks over here all right.

Happy New Year!!!

Crazy Lights

You ever seen one of those yards… 

at Christmas time…

that makes your car come to a complete stop all by itself…

just so you can sit there and gawk?

As beautiful as it is, all I can think is, “Holy Cow…the light bill.”

Crochet Nativity– Donkey & The Lamb

Ooooooh lookey here!! It’s time for my cute daughter’s birthday again and so you know what that means— a few more pieces for her nativity.

Just look at this little cutie! Awwwww….

This little guy is soooo adorable, I have to tell you–he was hard to give away.

And now we have handsome Mr. Donkey. He turned out a bit bigger than I expected. No, like bigger than Joseph. *Sigh.* That’s what happens when you don’t have the original pieces to use as a reference. GIANT stable animals. We’ve decided to pretend that everyone is kneeling–except the huge animals.

I must say, THIS nativity set has a ton of personality.

And I love it.
