Gromit – is that you?

20140625-223854-81534135.jpg

I love Wallace and Gromit! Mostly because it’s hilarious and my beau introduced the series to me when we were dating long distance which makes it quite sentimental to me.
This is my first run at a larger version of Gromit and I think it came out decent. The stitches are a little wide and his body shape is a bit off. I’ll have to drop to a smaller size hook for next time, for sure. But, overall I think he’s just adorable!

Hi – I’m back!

Uh – oh! This blog looks totally neglected – tsk! Sorry, about that. 🙂 Took a little break because life happened and things get buried a little bit, including this page. I’m going to try my BEST to post at least once a week here, even if it’s a little snippet about what I’ve been up to in the crafty-crafting world. What have y’all been up to?

Baby Alpaca Yarn

I’m really excited to be working with pure baby alpaca yarn! A friend of mine just recently went on a trip to Peru and brought home four skeins of this beautiful baby alpaca yarn! The brand is called SOL ALPACA. It feels so lush! I’m still trying to decide on a project, thick cowl? Small infinity? So many choices!

New Hobby! Polymer Clay.

Hi y’all!
Nope I haven’t given up crocheting but I’ve picked up a new hobby and I’m having so much fun with it, polymer clay! I held off on purchasing supplies as long as possible and the after holiday sales were a perfect time!
I did some research and bought the basics at Michaels. Clay, cheap tools, gloss, and eye pins to make charms.
Here’s a few charms I’ve made so far!

Did you pick up any after holiday hobbies?

Santa Loves Minions Too!

It’s TRUE – Santa LOVES Minions too! I was able to grab this shot at my very last craft show this season, Santa was wandering around and I jumped on the chance to get a minion photo-op! I adore this picture.
