I'm sure many of you are familiar with the adorable knitted meerkats from Nifty Knits. Well, as part of the Etsy Treasury Team Nifty has prepared two of her cutest baby meerkats for a global tour. :)
Nifty (better known as Heather Leavers) has sent out two of her little creations to become globe trotting adventurers. They will be meeting many of the ETTEAM (Etsy Treasury Team) members and learning something about their craft, or where they live and just having fun. Maybe even picking up a souvenir or two on the way.
Once home from their adventures the meerkats and their souvenirs will be up for a very cool giveaway hosted by the Etsy Treasury Team Blog. :)
So with all this in mind it was with great anticipation that a little meerkat was coming to the residence of Cute Designs for a visit. :D
Excitement was in the air as all my little crochet critters gathered themselves for a formal welcoming of little baby meerkat whose name is "Treasure" by the way. :) It was to be a very special occasion as none of them had met a meerkat before...
And then the moment arrived when little Treasure was warmly greeted by my formal spokesmonkey Marvin as they shook hands, big smiles and then the party began. :)
It was during the party that little Treasure began to realise that soon it would be travelling even longer journeys... alone.... and after making so many new friends this was quite a sombre thought for the little meerkat and one I wanted to help with so together we began the task of making Treasure a little travelling companion...
Treasure sat patiently in my yarn and helped when it could watching and taking in the slightly familiar process of a travelling buddy...
Gradually it started to come together although Treasure seemed to be getting a little confused with the anatomy of it's friend and thought it was a hat!
But after a little more crocheting and some help from Treasure a little amigurumi acorn arrived and will now be travelling with Treasure as a souvenir and a friend to keep it company on the long journey.
It's been a pleasure to host Treasure the travelling baby meerkat. :) Soon it will head off to it's next place... somewhere around the world and I send it lots of fond farewells. :)
