and I hope the weather is fine for Saturday’s White Rock Local Market. Come on by to pick up some fresh local grown produce and a few wonderful creations offered by the area’s best artisans. I’ll be there with loads of my critter creations including a pile of catnip snakes and bugs and crocheted critters including my latest, Paula the pit bull. Hope to see you there. The market takes place from 8:00 am until 1:00 pm Saturday, May 11 on Buckner Blvd. @ Northcliff Dr. in the Green Spot parking lot.
Remember how I said I loved custom creations? As soon as I finished my St. Bernard on a ski, I began crocheting a twin for Duncan the dog. His owner wanted him to look like Tony (he’s still waiting for a new home in my shop) but with Duncan’s colors. She sent me a bunch of photos of a really cute dog and I had the best time crocheting him. She promises to send photos of the dogs together. I love that. I can’t wait to see them. Enjoy.
I love dogs. All kinds. Even pit bulls. I’ve never lived with one but I’ve liked the ones I’ve met. They’re just like all other dogs, be nice to them and they’re nice to you. And you must know by now I love to crochet dogs as much as I love to crochet cats. When I create my crocheted critters, I usually use bright fun colors, the colors the critters would be if they had a choice I always say.
The reason I bring up pit bulls is that my most recent crocheted critter is a lovable, soft, huggable pit bull. I made him by crocheting with three different shades of brown chenille and white chenille to make him sort of realistic looking. I made this cute critter for a benefit art show, Deviant Art: Dispelling Myths. The show, now in its fifth year, raises funds for A Rotta Love Plus, a Minneapolis/St. Paul Minnesota pit bull and Rottweiler rehoming, advocacy, and education organization. If you venture into Facebook land, and who doesn’t these days, click here for the event page for the show.
At the end of January, I posted some photos of a crochet work in progress. At the time, I didn’t know whether I was creating feline or canine. Obviously, canine won. Meet Tony, a soft, cute and in my opinion, irresistible pup that you just know you need to take home with you. Click here or on his photo to see more photos and perhaps, give him a new home. Enjoy.
These last few weeks have been very busy and I hope that’s a good sign of better things ahead this year. I have been creating as fast as I can in the small amount of time that my day job leaves me. Here’s a few snaps of a work in progress. I still haven’t decided whether this critter is going to bark or meow. Don’t you love the teal yarn? Both yarns are so soft, whether dog or cat, this critter is going to be so huggable. Enjoy.
Hi all, I hope everyone here in the USA had a wonderful holiday weekend, eating, drinking and being merry. I did the same, but I also spent a lot of my time in my studio crocheting a new dog. Meet Bill.
He’s sooooo soft. The chenille yarn I used to make Bill is very, very soft and huggable. I get my chenille yarn from The Chenille Shack on Ebay. Great yarn, great woman to do business with.
Click on his picture to be taken to my Etsy shop where you can see more pictures. So Bill is now waiting patiently for his forever home. Will it be you?
It’s fall and this weekend’s weather forecast sounds perfect: 77° and partly cloudy. What better way to enjoy that weather than to visit the White Rock Local Market? Pick up some fresh local grown produce and start your holiday shopping with the wonderful creations offered by the area’s best artisans. I’ll be there with loads of my critter creations including some new catnip toys: bugs. Hope to see you there. The market takes place from 8:00 am until 1:00 pm Saturday, November 10 on Buckner Blvd. @ Northcliff Dr.
UPDATE: The Purr-fect Bra is now available for purchase via auction at this link: CLICK HERE You know you want this cute crocheted cat bra. You know you do. Go bid now. Thanks.
I have just completed my contribution to the Painted Bra Art Project, my Purr-fect Bra. Crocheted using no pattern, I just made it up as I went along. Only support offered by this bra is emotional and artistic. I have no idea what size it would be in bra terms.
The mission for the Painted Bra Art Project is to increase awareness about breast cancer and create a nurturing support system with the help of artists around the world. Go check out the fun painted, embroidered, appliqued and more bras at Painted Bra Art Project. All are fabulous works of art.
I’d like to introduce you to my latest crocheted critter, Sam, the multicolored striped dachshund softie. He’s a one of kind cutie that’s hanging out in my Etsy shop just waiting for someone to scoop him up. Will it be you?
