Halloween Fruit

August 5, 2018

Wow. It’s been a while since I have posted and if I’m being honest it’s been a while since I crocheted. I did do a lot of crocheted items for Christmas which usually burns me out for a few months. Here are the Halloween goodies I made for the trick or treaters: I love using […]

July 22, 2017

Crochet Mae is on You Tube! First video is a speed crochet. My daughter watches a lot of speed drawing, so I thought, ‘why not speed crochet?’ I’m working on my setup and plan to do another one very soon.

Kirby

July 19, 2017

It’s wonderful to crochet for family. My daughter has challenged me several times to crochet her stuff. I love doing this as it not only keeps me on my toes but it is nice to make her something she absolutely loves. There’s no better reason to pick up the hook than putting a smile on […]

Zero from Nightmare Before Christmas

June 28, 2017

Here is a little Zero amigurumi I did a while back. I didn’t have a pattern, and it was one of the first times I had used felt with one of my creations. I wanted the ‘ghost cape’ to be flowing and thought crocheting it would make it too heavy. The felt gave it more […]

Gen Con Pokemon Crochet

Crafters are pretty cool people. Not only do they make creative things but they are also very generous. A while back I had seen a Twitter post from a fellow crocheter who spent the last year making cute, geeky amigurumi to hide at a con she was attending leaving each one with a note to […]

GNOMES!

March 6, 2015

I have been crazy for gnomes this past year. I blame Gen Con. Well really I blame Gut Bustin’ Games and their Oh Gnome you Don’t board game that had a heavy presence at Gen Con. It looked like a fun game and we even got a demo at their booth. Also our niece took […]

Turd Blossom

October 4, 2014

Totally inspired by Star Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy when asked what he was doing (he was dancing around) he replied something like I am distracting you you turd blossom. Turd blossom was one of those phrases that from the moment I heard it I knew it would forever be part of my vocabulary. […]

Halloween Monsters

November 1, 2013

For Halloween, I decided to make a little treat for trick or treaters stopping by. These little monsters are done in the round -increasing until 24 stitches starting with six in a magic ring. A few even rounds and then I started the decrease. The first decrease round I did in the back loops so […]
