So here are some more things I whipped up as Christmas gifts this year. A few "find it" type ornies for all the kiddies, then some doll clothes for my daughter's doll. I made her a pajama set, a Christmas dress, and a winter coat with a matching hand muff. Too cute! Right now I'm making a bazillion granny squares to assemble an afghan for my oldest. Will post when its complete. Happy New Year Everyone!

Here are some pics of the new items I've been creating this year. Can't wait to get started on next year's list...Happy Holidays Everyone!!!!

Also made a hacky sack, a winter hat, a hooded baby afghan, 2 "fish net" type cardigans for my little squid and her bff, some fingerless gloves for my bubba, a tic-tac-tote bag, a tinkerbell quilt and some other assorted goodies. Currently working on Christmas gifts so the pics won't be posted until after the holidays. Hope yours are filled with love, joy and happiness! See you in 2011!

Well after almost 4 years in the making, I've FINALLY completed the 4 foot (yes 4 foot) long crayon body pillow for my daughter! Now, for those of you who don't know, I've made 3 of these in my past - 1 for each of my children and each in their favorite color. I must say that for anyone wanting to do this pattern, it is extremely BORING. It's a super simple single crochet in the round, changing colors evey now and then, but to me, that's boring as all hell. I mean no offense in any way to its creator and I'm glad that I made them for each of my children but oy - what a killer to make. That's why it took me 7 years to complete my first one, 2 years for the second, and 4 to make this last. I'm sure anyone will be able to complete this pattern much quicker than I did. I simply have a tendency to put off a project if I get bored with it and don't see results quick enough to my liking. With all that being said, here's the link to where you can get the pattern.

and now the pic:

and again, I mean no offense to its creator and apologize for my own faults. Thanks for looking!
