Prize Winning Puppy

  I've been posting a lot about needle felting lately, So I decided It's back to crochet...for today at least! This is an old project I entered into the saline county fair last year. And It won first place!! :D 

I call him my scrappy pup, because I used a ton of different yarns to make him! I gave him to my mom! :)

I also won first place in a different category. The other doll was a blue mermaid with multicolored hair. I sold her though, so I don't have any pictures. 

Yay a real ribbon!!
On a different note, my cousin and good friend caroline (owlette) just started a crafting blog!! I'm sure she would love some visitors! Just click the link to check it out! :D

For The Love Of Grandmas

My grandma has always been a big inspiration to me. Whether teaching me how to crochet a granny square, or taking me  to the craft store to pick out yarn, she always goes out of her way to help me fuel my creative juices. So I'd like to dedicate this post to my grandma. A few days ago she had me over her house so we could needle felt together. It was so fun! My little bird Pandien(see previous post) was the product of our get together,and my grandma gave me her finished duck! He's soooo cuuute!

Me and my grandma learning to needle felt.
The little bird grandma gave me...what should I call him..?

At the time we peeled apart yarn to make make-shift roving, however my grandma bought me 16 ounces of pure wool! It's so soft I love Working with it!
