A little dusting of snow...

Yesterday morning I woke up to a light dusting of snow. Was surprised by this because even though I'd seen the weather was getting colder I didn't think we were due snow here. Thought it was further up north as it is today.

I'm done with the snow now and don't really want anymore. Saying that though it was a perfect reason to get some new photos taken of my little amigurumi snowy owl. I forgot to do it when we had all the heavy stuff but I think it looks nice for the pictures. :)

Amigurumi Owls in Love

Just a quick update tonight as I'm feeling pretty tired.

I just wanted to post about another of my Valentine's Day themed ideas which are Little Owls in Love. :)  They're based on my current owl design but I used pastel shades of blue and pink yarn and then stitched little hearts to their sides. Awww....  I think they make a cute pair. :)

They'll be going up for adoption on my etsy shop. :)

Love is in the air... Amigurumi Robots in Love

I always find January a bit of a hard month.  I think it's just getting over the excitement of Christmas and New Year and then returning to work after a nice break.  Kind of feels like I'm semi-hibernating which is good for my crochet. :P 

My thoughts have turned to Valentine's Day and I've been spending some time making a few love themed items and having some fun, makes a change to bring out all the girly colours as I must admit I'm not a girly girl person. :)  So this post is to introduce my little Amigurumi Robots in Love. :)  I've just listed this pink one at my etsy shop here and there are other colours that will follow on shortly..... like this...

And on the subject of Valentine's Day type things, the Love Blobites are back too in my etsy shop.  These little Loved Up Blobs appeared this time last year so it's been cool to bring them back again. :)

Amigurumi Purple Leaf Rustler

Before Christmas I spent quite a bit of time creating woodland items for my etsy shop such as owls, acorns etc and really enjoyed making them. :)  It was then I created a couple of Leaf Rustlers which were my own woodland themed animal based on familiar looking animals with a difference.

Over Christmas I started changing my pattern a little and tweaking it here and there and also tried out some new yarn I bought and was pleased with the result.  A slightly different looking Leaf Rustler but very much loved all the same.  I've made a few different colours and they'll all be appearing at my etsy shop at some point but I thought I would start off with the purple one first. :)

It's 2010!

Happy New Year! Blimey, it's 2010!

Sorry I haven't updated for a while, I have no idea where December went! It disappeared so quickly in a rush of frenzied crocheting, concerts, meals out with friends, getting stranded in the snow one night (unforgetable!), video games and then New Year! Phew!

My mind has been spinning with lots of new ideas for Cute Designs this year and I'm feeling excited about them, although how many will actually be made I have no idea - so many ideas so little time. But I'm looking forward to 2010 and hoping it'll be a great year! :D
