A few Crochet Critters

A Crochet Kitty that I recently made. She is crocheted with Fun Fur, giving her a nice Furry look!

A Teddy Bear (with her blankie of course) for a Swap!

A Giraffe and Duck for a Swap. These are made with cotton thread and the teeny size is a bit rough on the eyes!

Crocheting is usually what I do when I sit to watch TV in the evenings. My husband swears I have TV ADD and cannot sit still though one program. Having something else to do, helps me to sit still!

Matryoshka Dolls

What started with a Spring Matryoshka Doll swap, ended up with numerous Matryoshka babies being born!!
This first one is what I made for the swap. It is "Happy Spring" and is supposed to be a flower!
As always, I cannot make just one! This is the result of an afternoon of Matryoshka Doll making! I had to make my own pattern, as I couldn't find one I liked!
These two are "Cupcake Matryoshka Dolls". I had been holding onto this fabric and decided to use it on two of the dolls.
This doll is in honor of the new "Alice in Wonderland" movie! It is Alice & Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum! I love how this one turned out!!
