I seem to have developed a slight obsession with amigurumi, the art of crocheting small stuffed animals or toys. I’ve not tried it yet, but I love searching to see what is possible. And I was delighted to come back from my jaunt visiting friends and family in the south-east to find that the amigurumi book I ordered has ARRIVED!! Yippeeeee!!! I am beyond excited!
There are so many lovely things to make, I just don’t know which to start on first, it is quite a predicament. The zebra?
or the cute little penguin?
but then the giraffe is rather lovely…
… and so is the puppy
or what about the fluffy sheep?
Gaaaa, and this is only a small selection of the patterns! It really is a gorgeous book – the photos are lovely, and the instructions look like they’re going to be really easy to follow. Only problem is there is too much choice! I will keep you posted on what I choose for my first venture.
In other news, the wrist warmers are all finished (photo to follow); my orchid, which was deemed to be beyond the grave, has sprouted a lovely long flower shoot…
… and my hyacinths are attempting to flower!
And if all that wasn’t enough, my gorgeous friend Coco very kindly donated me a HUGE bag of fabric!! So with that and the amigurumi, I am going to be VERY busy! Thank goodness it is almost the weekend! Not that there will be much time for craftiness – The Bert’s sister is coming to stay, hooray!!!
I hope that you have a great weekend planned too!
