It has gradually been getting a little colder and getting darker earlier in the evenings now, a sure sign that summer is coming to an end and autumn is on its way. :) I quite like autumn although winter is my favourite season.
Over the weekend I have been crocheting some owls. I've been wanting to do owls for a little while but kept forgetting, now seemed the perfect time to make them to hopefully add a touch of autumn to my etsy shop. :) They're available now for adopting.
I made a few colours and tried a couple with the little "ears" and one without for some variety. Took a trip out into the back garden for photos this time to make a change, I think they came out ok. :) So much so that I used one to create a new banner for my etsy shop - nice to have a change. :)

After teaching myself the basic stitches the very first thing I ever crocheted was an elephant. :) I followed an over complicated pattern in a book and struggled at times but got there in the end with it. I guess it turned out ok for a first attempt but it looked a little Wonky so therefore I called it Wonky. I still have it as I think it's nice to keep your first ever creation.
Since then I'd never ventured back to making an elephant until recently when I came up with this little one. It was free styled, no pattern used at all, just me seeing what I came up with. This time I'm not keeping it and it can be adopted at my etsy shop here. :)

I know Halloween is still a long way off yet but we get such little time to think about it and make stuff that we might not usually think of so why not start now? :)
I made a little Amigurumi Skeleton and thought I'd share him on my blog. He can be adopted at my etsy shop here. :)

I've still been having fun making my little amigurumi bunnies. :) I suddenly decided it could look quite cute to make a baby one to match the bigger mum ones. :) So I've been making mother and baby bunny sets.
The baby ones are so cute and ickle to make. I am loving these bunnies. :D They can be adopted at my etsy shop.

I've been making little Amigurumi Bunnies over the weekend. :) I wanted a design that was fairly simple without many limbs but still (hopefully) appealing to look at. Sometimes I dislike sewing limbs on, it's my least favourite part! Just makes a change to create a few things where you don't have to do much of it. :P
I've enjoyed making these little bunnies though and they look quite cute sitting there together, I want to make more in other brighter colours too. They can be adopted from my etsy shop. :)

I've finally got around to starting up a blog I've been meaning to do for ages. :) I love looking at all the cool stuff out there that people make and want to feature more of it, I sort of started doing on here a while ago but I don't think it fitted right. So I started up a new blog called Kawaii-Bug. Please pop over and give it a visit if you have time. :)
I'm hoping to make regular updates to it.

Meet the Happy Gappy Monster - happy by name and gappy by nature, bless him. :) He's fun though and very friendly. I thought it would be fun to make a monster and this was what I ended up with.
He's up for adoption at my etsy shop here. :)
