Good Saturday Morning to you all! I just wanted to show off this cute little owl I made yesterday. I got the pattern from here. I fell in love the moment I saw it and went straight for my G hook and some Simply Soft yarn and got to work.
The pink baby one is the original size as noted in the pattern. She is 3 inches tall. I didn't add the fabric to the front of her yet, but just couldn't wait to take some photos. The multi colored one is 7 inches tall.
A little while ago I came across this blog, I love how she has taken small Ami patterns and just by using thick chunky yarn makes these large animals. So of course I had to run to Walmart, with the excuse to get groceries, and grab a few skeins of Lion Brand Hometown USA yarn. The yarn is cheap $2.97 a skein, but I lucked out and found 4 skeins of the hot pink for $2.50. This morning I have been looking on Ravelry and Crochet Pattern Central for other Ami patterns to try out, although I keep looking at that Octopus and am really wanting to make that. I have 2 skeins of Charlotte Blue and think I will start one with this.
I found another visitor in the bathroom this morning. I don't know what I am going to do with Maranda and her bringing frogs in the house. Maybe I should pull out my old aquarium and make a frog habitat out of it for her. I need to Google it, maybe. After chasing it around the bathroom walls I finally caught him and he is safe and sound outside.
This is my nosey little friend. It flew up this morning as I was taking pictures of the Owls outside to see what was going on. It seems every time I am out on the side porch it comes up, sits on the ivy arch for a little bit to see what is going on, then takes off. I think this is one of the birds that had a nest in our shrub on the corner of the house. There was 4 eggs in it, but something got the eggs, no trace of them. I am thinking a raccoon or snake had a snack.
Well I guess I need to go for now, time to get productive so I can get some hooking done this afternoon. I have dinner in the slow cooker already, a Boston Butt, cooking in Carolina Classic BBQ sauce. I am going to make some Cole slaw in a little while and enjoy a good ole BBQ sandwich for dinner. I hope ya'll have a great Saturday.
