Got the third Amigurumi christmas present done

Meet the lil Fairy Ballerina that will be nameless until christmas
and also has not yet earned her wings

I sorta used the Punky bunny pattern for reference but chaged alot of things in the pattern.. The sizing is a bit different. The bunny and fawn are allready wrapped so I couldn't get a show of the three 2gether :)

The hair is Leaves I crochet around ten leaves and stitched them on to the head it is really hard to see the detailing in the photo but it looks really neat the leaves where first going to be her skirt a then out of know where I pined two to her head and decided to use it for her hair. She has no ears they are hiding lol so not sure what sort of animal she is :Z
The feet have toes and I made lil green slippers that are removable!!

I also finished a lovely scarf
Its called Queen Ann's lace scarf
you can find the pattern here for free
queen anns lace scarf
It is going to one of my grandmothers for christmas and Im almost done the second one. It is in a deep purple ( the second one)
This one is in browns and has other colors mixed in the photo does not do justice.
Im also not that great at taking pics of scarfs lol
It is around 5 feet long so it will be able to wrap around your neck twice..

Well 44 days till the wedding i have revamped the flower girl baskets and the ringbearer pillow will take pictures later today and hopefully post tomorrow.. Im going to be finishing up the bouquets tonight :)

I finished this a couple days ago but sence he is for my son for christmas I have been having problems trying to get this bunnies photos done.. I ended up doing them in my room so Im not completely happy with the photos but they will work.
I made him a lil back pack that ethan could put lil trinket in.. I never did do the skull on the shirt.. I think it looks just fine without it. I Just love the way it turned out and am sure he will love it just as much

So two Handmade presents done :)

~Starting my christmas crocheting~

I decided to open up One of my Crochet pattern books ( I WILL SAY my FAVORITE one) and make some items out of it for christmas for the lil ones in my family..
Amigurumi Super Happy Crochet by Elizabeth Doherty.. If you have followed my blog in the past i have mentioned this book times.. I made the piglet for my best friends lil boys first birthday. I made Strawbeary for fun.

One of the main reasons I got the book was for The Friends Forever Fawn..
I have been wanting to make it sense I got the book but just never got around to it..


So well I was pondering on what to make or what to get for my lil Sister Sienna who is 4 yrs old i decided the best gift would be hand made.. I planned and still plan on making her a berry hat like I made kiera but I also wanted to make her a toy.. She is the proud owner of my Second Ruthy doll I named Missy, ( that she got as part of her birthday present, and also last christmas I made her a fab lil purse with her name (I know I spoil the kids in my family)) She Loves all my creations so I decided that this lil fawn would be great for her, and that she would give it so much love

SO with a lil love and some work I finished this great lil fawn in three days ( Seriously a record for me)

I just love the way it turned out and I think I better put her in a box and wrap her up before i decide to keep her for my self..

So I got 1 gift done and many to go ..

Im working on the Punk Bunny out of the same book for my son For Christmas he is right into the Tech Decks and thought that the punk bunny out of the book would suit the skateboards :) I got the arms, the muzzle and the eye patches done working on the ears now and hopefully will finish them tonight and get the body Started ...

I think I might make a couple more of these to give for gifts... I never did brush it enough to get it right fuzzy i will try that next time!!
So we have a couple new babies in the family I think I talked about before that I was making baby blankets for them well i never did finish them lmao opps So sense I really didn't feel like making them or finishing them I should say I thought lil hats would be cute sense it is getting cold here and the winter is coming.. So I came up with this lil Apple hat..

So I haven't got any thing completely finished that might be do to this nice weather and no rain we are having here.. My crafts are feeling it and so is the inside of my house lmao. My house is a complete mess and my love seat in my leaving room is full of half done or just started crochet projects.... oooo boy

All the Squares I have done for Kiera's Blanket.. NOt many lmao

This is A square I made recently From a book I bought Called 200 crochet Blocks by Jan Eaton you can find it here on Amazon .
Here it is next to the pic in the book looks good hey
I think Im going to make myself a nice big Afghan in these colors :)

So I started to work On baby blanket NUmber two sence Baby blanket number one wasn't turning out..
Well I ran out of yarn lmao and Im less than half done so I have to wait to finish that one till I get three more balls of the supper soft baby cloud yarn. Lovely Shell stitch didn't know it took so much yarn up :)

No pics of that I also HAve finished a couple more squares from the book i mentioned above and will post them at a later date..

I know I havent been around and well I have been terrible busy Gardening and working outside.. I even had to go fencing ( BARBWIRE) had some very lovely marks all over my body.. I decided to fight with the barb wire and well it won.. I had a huge Blister on the Palm of my hand from the hammer and terrible gouges all over my arms from the stupid barbs.
But I though sence i havent got any FINISHED of item's in crochet I could show you MY lovely flowers that I have worked so hard on ..

These are my PAnsies you see i have never bought these ones I just found them aroud 4 years ago in the middle of the lawn at the old house i lived at and transplanted them. I got lucky this Spring sense the house we use to live in has no one in it i went there and dug up my beloved lil pansies.. ( I think they like the new place)
place) This one I bought I have yellow, purple and orange aswell when I got them the only had one flower on each plant and now there covered.. (I like this close up)
Now a flower bed wouldn't be a flower bed with out these

This lil one just said hello to the bright sun yesterday :)

Im still waiting for many of my Perennials to bloom so once they are I will be posting more pics..
My first Veggie Garden is growing WOOT there is sprouts.. SO excited I was afraid it wasn't going to produce but by the looks of it, it will be :)

So just so you all know I AM around ...
