Samara the 4ply sheep

rsz_20170615_171733

I’ve been trying my best to clear all my unfinished crochet objects in an attempt to be more organised! So far I’ve managed to complete two and trash three (no point in holding on to it if I don’t want to finish it, happily I managed to save most of the yarn used). So my first finish was another Heidi Bears Shoop, I made her in 4ply and have decided to call her Samara.

Stephen was the first Heidi Bears pattern I made (followed by a Fatty Lumpkin with unicorn mods), and I can see by looking at the two sheep how much I have improved with the join as you go, Samara looks an awful lot neater!

As you can see I had a lot of fun posing them together! I’d really like to make two more sheep, one in aran and one in chunky so I can make a tower of sheep.

Finish! Erna the Strawberry from Lalylala

I have been crocheting like a mad woman recently but I haven’t been working on anything that I can share (it’s a bit of a secret project with the lovely Lisa from The Wee House of Crochet, and I’m so excited about it!). So I decided to take the Erna doll I finished a few weeks ago over to Wigg Island for some photos. I originally wanted to take pictures of her in the strawberry patch at my other halfs allotment, I have a whole scenario planned that I still might do, I just need to wait for the fruits to grow!

I really should of taken some close up photos of her to show off the beads sewn on as strawberry pips but I was having too much fun posing her (and entertaining the dog walkers who obviously thought I was crazy!)
