Diglett

 

Beckham asked for a Pokemon Diglett.  How hard could it be?  Why….I won’t even need a pattern.

Of course, right. But it severely complicates things when you wait waaaaay too long to finish it, and end up sewing the rocks and dirt around him in the car, ON THE WAY to the birthday party.

I had planned to do a way better job with this one. In fact, I told Beck that I wanted to make his eyes shiny and put tons more dirt around him but he said, “No, I like him just like that.”

So, the lesson learned here is do it right BEFORE the kid sees it because you won’d have time for redemption afterwards. Hahaha.

But even the baby was taken with it.

I’d love to stick around, but I’m afraid there are more birthdays coming.

Gotta go sew.

Skitty

Another birthday we have this month is our little month is our sweet little Lily. She asked if I could make the Pokemon character named Skitty for her. There are some really clever people in this world–and I’m not one to reinvent the wheel…so to speak. So, I found the perfect pattern at Sabrina’s Crochet. Thanks Sabrina, for saving me time–and well, just saving me–if you know what I mean.

Yeah, I know. Pokemon are very strange creatures.

But this one wasn’t so bad, in fact it was dang fun…

and not nearly as weird as some of them that I’ve seen.

Thank Heaven no one has asked me to make something, you know… creepy.

But then, I’m not finished yet.

Haha.

Perhaps your kids are all Pokemon crazy these days–like mine and my grandkids are.

When I asked the three that have January birthdays, what they would like Grammy to make them…I wasn’t a bit surprised.

Miss Chomp asked for a Snorlax. That’s him above.

“Can you do that Grammy?”

With a little help from 3 different patterns on the internet…

I did the best I could.

It was a pretty fun adventure and in the end…

I’d say,  “Why yes, Miss Chomp..I believe I can.

Shayah In The Snow

I came out to take a video of the beautiful snow coming down and sweet little Shayah came out to join me. Apparently, her Russian constitution makes her very brave in all that snow.
