Amigurumi Swap 2

The amigurumi swap I mentioned in the last post, I have shown the amigurumi I have made for my partner. This time I am posting the one that made by her. My partner, Michelle, she is very young and talented crocheter! I didn't know she's so young until I read her blog. When I was her age, I remember my mom tried to show me the "shell" crochet pattern and I wasn't even paying any attention. LOL I was a basketball player back then, even though I was only 5 feet 2! haaaaaaa! Anyway, when I got the package, my daughter wanted to know what was inside. Katie, my younger one, was the one to open the box although the swap was mine but she clearly thought that was sure to be hers! After she opened the box, she at once saying "reindeer" "bunny" and "what is this?". hahaha! She was only 4, all the deer she saw was reindeer and she always confused with sheep and goat. Although I told her many times, it's just won't stick to her mind! LOL She claimed the purple deer immediately. I should have known, she loves deer! How did my partner know? She also knew her sister love bunny, so she said "Evie can have the bunny!" I was so pleased, she finally shared! So she happily took the deer and the pink sheep and asked me to take a picture and she then put them into her bed. I was thinking my partner should be very happy that her works were appreciated very much by this family! Katie also asked me to take a picture of her reindeer and then print it out and tape it on the wall. I know she really love these gifts from Michelle! I also got 2 Godiva chocolate bars and a big bag of candies from Michelle. I should take pictures of the moment when my daughters petting their tummies and said "Mommy, Yum, Yum, please please please, let me have the chocolate please!" I was enjoying the moment so much and I forgot to take pictures, silly me! Michelle, Thanks!

Miss Piggy and Little Ghost

Wow.. I didn't notice I haven't been updated this blog for a long time! What a shame! XP

I actually got some problems in my family that I have to deal with, after that, my energy of writing just not there! My younger daughter got breathing problem and went in and out of the hospital a few times these 2 months. We have been sick worrying about her. In the mean time we are not feeling well too. Fortunately we all feel better and I even have a little time to finish a amigurumi swap! Nice! =)

I haven't been crochet for the last few months and I really want to get back into it. Crochet keeps me SANE! LOL With 2 girls yelling, screaming, dancing, smiling, having fun, destroying the whole house, picking up toys, cooking, selling in Etsy, I am happy that doing crochet is the one that keeps me happy and peace in mind! Don't you have that feeling? LOL

Last few weeks I have joined an amigurumi swap. Each person has to crochet 2 amis. I know my partner like undersea critter, but I am not a very good listener, I chose to crochet Miss Piggy. I like her because personally I think she is cute! I am thinking to crochet more for her later. I have so many projects in mind, geez... 24 hours just not enough! I also crochet a little ghost. I saw that one day in my email from Lion Brand yarn and I thought this could be a little something that she might enjoy! =)

Here is the picture of Miss Piggy and Little guy ghost! Miss Piggy pattern is from AmyGaines.etsy.com, This Ghost Pattern you can find it through Lion Brand Yarn website. The necklace brown bead is from Nspire.etsy.com. Safety Eyes I use 7.5mm clear eyes on little ghost, and 8mm black eyes on Miss Piggy. I think Miss Piggy is about 1 ft long. I hope my partner really like it. Here is the picture of what I have sent to her.
