Amigurumi 101

Today I took an Amigurumi class at The Little Knittery in LA. In three hours we learned the basics of amigurumi and it was awesome to be able to create something, I thought that with my crochet skills, I would only end up with a stand of single crochet but thanks to Julie, our class instructor, I was actually able to create an entire head shape! My little creation is in the top picture. Lili liked it a lot, I might just have to make a few of those with a hint of catnip in there :) The second one, is  the one my friend Linda made - super cute!!! :)

Sweet Hippo Embroidery

Yes! It's finally in my shop! The hippo is finished! :)

So I have to admit that I have been a little distracted from my crafts and my shop lately. Not sure why the lack of motivation, but after a couple of weekends lost without any creativity, I forced myself to do something this past Sunday and I'm back!!!

Going through my stuff, I realized I had so many projects "almost done"- just waiting to be framed. I finished them, photograph them and seeing the end product plus all the fabrics I have sitting there waiting to be made into something got me SUPER motivated again. So I will be doing as much as I can this week. The only bummer is that I only have a few hours at night, but this weekend I will be catching up again. :)
