AMIGURUMI Dolls and Animals....Another finish



                 Easter has come and gone!

                Hope everyone had a great time with
                          family and friends!


              While my time should have been spent
                      preparing for dinner and the
                         busy weekend I was
                          busy making
                     AMIGURUMI DOLLS
                         and Pets!!


              Meet little girl KATE and little girl Kate..







                        No I haven't lost it...

                  One came out larger than the other...

                     one pattern same doll...

            This pattern is by Jenny and Teddy.
                       Finish size 5-6 inches.
              Now this all depends on the yarn you
                          use and the hook size.

              As you can see in the following pictures
                         I used 2 different yarns  
                             and hooks.




                    Kate here is about 8" tall.


                        Kate here is 5" tall.


                  Then I couldn't resist when I saw this
                         cute puppy....
                 Harvest Moon by Studio Ami.













                       He measures 4" from head to tail.

                    Looks like I have started something..

                      My grands have put in orders for
                          a golden retriever , a siamese cat,
                               jiggly pup.....the list goes on.

                             Keeps me out of mischief..lol


                        Thanks for stopping by!

Busy hands... another finish



                               Hope everyone is enjoying 
                                   this Easter weekend!

                       
                      I just can't sit idle ..

            So when we are watching tv in the evening my hands
                                  are kept busy.

                    Thought I would share with you my latest.....

                               In the dishcloth series.....



                             This pattern is called Crocus....
                                    I thought it was fitting since
                                          the crocus's have started 
                                                    to bloom.







                               Thank goodness they have come out
                                      with some bright colours in 
                                                      cotton.



                                    I fell in love with this green.


                                    








                             If you are interested in crocheting this
                                           pattern go here.

                                             

                              Thanks for stopping by and visiting
                                           this busy weekend.

                               Just made a vegetable lasagna..
                                  to add with the turkey that we are
                                         having on Sunday.

                                         




                                    Recipe to follow......

Vignettes......



                                          It's Easter Week!

                                         

                         Here is one of my favourite Easter flowers..

                             Daffodils and Pansies..

                                 ok maybe two!!


                                                  





      While browsing the isles at my local garden store I'd seen these
                         bowls made up with pansies and alysum.

                                      Their price was $14.99

                 That may sound  reasonable...but not for me..

                                Then I spotted these daffodils...

                                           A full pot of minis only $6.99...

                                 So they went in my cart ....
                    
                                          Next I spotted these beautiful
                                                pansies....
                                                         only  $.99 cents.....


                                So they came home with me as well.......

                                        I took my pot of daffodils and added in the
                                                         pansies.... and wa la......
                                        
                                                      There you have a beautiful
                                                          arrangement for only.....


                                                         $7.99........


                             So the title of my post read VIGNETTE!!





                                     So here in the corner of my living room
                                                      sits another vignette....


                                    Notice the brass lamp in the background...
                                                 You know they are back in style...

                                          So I updated mine by adding a new shade...

        
                                                Happy Easter!!

                                                     Thanks for stopping by!

                           Right now it's snowing here just north of the city
                                  of Toronto, Ontario.

                          We have about 3cm and it's still snowing.

                                           I put this display together on the weekend
