Heart Shaped Bunny

Last night I had an idea to make a bunny out of a heart. Here's the bottom of the bunny .Bunny from the front.

Bunny from the top.

Bunny from behind with a big butt.

The next step is to make her a carrot spaceship. Don't you think that would be totally awesome?

I am reading a great book by Patrick Rothfuss called The Name of the Wind. It's a great new series and the next one comes out in the next couple of months. I am also catching up on the Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney. I am on #2, Roderick Rules. The third one came out last week.

Class and a Rock in a Penguin Costume

My class on Sunday at the Studio at Rush Creek was really fun! There were 4 people there and here is what they created.

Becky made an amazing octopus.

Sarah, made some good progress on what she calls her quarter doily.

Katie and Katie have stuffed little balls of fun.

Dave asked for a rock in a penguin costume a while ago and I finally made him one. He's one of my larger rock costumes. I feel that I could go even larger, so we'll see what I can come up with next in the realm of rocks in costumes.

I am finally finishing what is out in the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan. I am almost through Titan's Curse and soon I'll be starting Battle of the Labyrinth. Looks like I am right on track because the Demigod Files comes out next month.

Ode to Rats

Rats are wonderful creatures that can make sweet lovable pets. As an ode to rats I have crocheted one. In my opinion this is my best rat yet, though I haven't yet named her. Any thoughts on what I should call her?

New Patterns!!

I've got the patterns I'll be using for my class on the 18th of January at the Studio at Rush Creek up in my Etsy Shop now! Here's a peek at the owls, octopuses, and bunnies. They are going for $2.50 a piece or $6 for all three. They look great in pairs and I can imagine that they would look amazing as an army.

A bear and a bunny

This special pair is a custom order for a pair of twins. One is a bear and the other is a bunny, if you hadn't figured that out from the title of this post or the pictures. Both have removable clothing and non-removable underwear.

I am kind of into this cowl thing. I like the way they look, but I don't know if I can wear one for a day. I don't like things close to my throat. Maybe I'll have to make one and try it. I like the construction of the green cowl on the bunny. It's braided and there are three rings intertwined. I am thinking about spinning up some yarn to see how it translates into a human sized cowl.

**Studio at Rush Creek class update - The class has been moved to January 18th. So if you weren't able to come or thought you missed it you still have a chance to sign up at the Studio at Rush Creek website.**
