BFFs


I've made some more toys and actually I don't even remember the last time I made something that wasn't a toy. Perhaps I'm getting in touch with that inner child again. Over the summer my sister-in-law was in town with my completely adorable nephew and nieces. You may remember I made some fish for Carol. She also asked for a pig that I only just now got around to making. And because I can't send something to Carol and not the other two cutie-pies, I made a bear (who I first thought was going to be a monkey, but obviously I'd been wrong about that) for Audrey and I have an alien (similar to this) I'll send to Porter.

Maybe I'll make something other than toys at some point but for now I'm enjoying my little friends. They are fun and don't require a lot of thought or a pattern and for someone in her mid-thirties who is going to school and taking care of four kids, well, thoughts are at a premium around here.

I didn't realize that you were going to school. Nice. :)

The toys are really cute. I'm sure they will bring hours of happiness. :)

Your toys are cute! :) The lion on my website was a pattern from "Amigurumi World: Simply Cute Crochet." It was a gift for my Secret Pal in the SP14 round. Lions are one of the things she collects.

They are awesome. Good luck with school! I hate it, but maybe you will do better than I. :)

They are adorable. Make me wish I had better crochet skills!

My kids are watching me look at your blog. They want everything. I think some of them will be surprised to get the mail soon. You're the best aunt ever and maybe it's because you're in touch with your inner child.

Wow Marcia! These are so clever and fun! You must have back orders on the wish lists from people. Very cute!
