Well, I have gotten so restless with being sick (just a bad cold, and now feeling much better), that I decided to give crochet a very determined try!
The first thing I have nearly completed successfully is a small pumpkin with lid. It is about 5 inches in diameter. It can hold small candies or other small items. I still have to make the brown stem, and attach both stem and leaf to top. I found the pattern here: http://www.allthingsminiature.com/1/post/2013/09/free-crochet-pumpkin-treat-bowl-pattern.html
The next thing I made was a tiny (about 4 inch long) pink kitty, for Emily. She loved it and named her Rainbow. I crocheted a collar and flower for her neck too. Here she is climbing all over my inhaler! I decided to embroider on her eyes rather than glue on felt. I've decided that depending on how you look at her, she can be a cat/pig/ or elephant (from the rear tail angle). Just too cute, and really fast and easy! Recipe for this one was here: http://amiamour.com/2014/08/kitty-mod-free-cat-amigurumi-pattern/
And last I found a pattern for a Pokeball. From Pokemon. This was for Donovan, and he loves his surprise today too! I have to say, I kinda want one of these cool balls myself!

I am still in shock that me, myself, and I made these! I should get sick more often! Just kidding....no thanks! It also helped that it has pretty much rained continuously the last 5 days! What else can you do???????
