And last but not least, I made this Pokeball for my son. He took it to school and I ended up making five more. Sold those for $3 each. Now I'm learning how to make Pikachu to go along with the pokeball.

Ollie Owl

Then I made this owl. I followed a simple pattern and ended up adding what my hubby called the "eyebrows", haha.


Next I made a hedgehog. HE was too much fun to make! The "prickly back" was a challenge though. It took me quite a while to do the stitches because I went in rows and did a stitch, chain, skip, stitch ALL the way from the bottom of his butt to the top of his head.

Just a quick update on what I've made in the time I've been away.

First I made a "goth girl". She was inspired by a girl I saw at Disneyland when we went last month. She took me three days to finish, mostly because of the hair. I don't know how I found the patience to do this, but every single strand was cut in lengths of 24" and the folded in half and passed through each stitch. It was torture, but the outcome was perfect.

Here's a closer look at her face,


and boots with frilly socks.
