Well, I probably won't do that again..

Happy Day-After-Easter, dear readers!

No. It's not a holiday, but I'm lame and missed the real holiday, so take it or leave it. ;-)

Currently, I'm sitting on the couch watching Addie play with her little doggie.  You know, the one that is part of her harness for hikes and air ports? She's petting it, and then gave it too kisses on the nose and started singing to it.  All without realizing I was sitting here watching her.  So stinkin' cute!!

Anyway...that's not the point of this post, but it just happened and was so totally adorable that I had to share.

On to my post:

I tried something new this week!  With living on a budget and being crafty, I thought "why go out and buy a stuffed bunny for the Easter basket??"  I found a few patterns a few weeks ago to try out some amigurumi (<---stuffed animals made from crochet) toys for Addie, and thought that Easter would be a perfect time to try 'em out!

Hmm....probably won't try that again.  I mean, in theory, this was a great idea. Addie loves yarn.  She loves anything crochet-related, really.  I mean, her lovey blanket is crochet and she can't get enough of it.  She hugs skeins of yarn while I work. She steals blankies from her friends if they are crochet or knit.  She even pretends to crochet with me!

So...yeah.  I figured she'd love an amigurumi Easter bunny.  I fear, though, that she has the same thoughts on this bunny as I do.  If you ask me...he looks pretty creepy!


  1. NO NO NO! I don't think it looks creepy! Really?? You do? It's eyes are even and it's not cross eyed or anything, I think it's adorable!

  2. Ha! Thanks Loni!

    I'm not quite sure what it is about him. I've gotten mixed reviews. Some people seem to love it, and others seem to hate it!

  3. I think some "springy" colors would have made him a little less creepy, but none the less, I'm pretty sure he made a great Easter gift.

    I love the new blog design by the way. That's how I found you! :)

  4. Thanks Brittany,

    I kind of agree. Unfortunately, this is the only yarn I had (that wasn't already assigned to other projects) that coordinated together.

    I made a purple bunny w/ green ears for Addie's BFF and that one is honestly cuter. Hmm...

    I love my new design! She does great work. I'll be blogging about it soon!

  5. I love your new blog. The new header and title and all is great!!!

    I do think the bunny is cute. I did wonder why you choose the colors instead of more bright pastel Easter type colors but I still totally think the bunny is cute!!!!

  6. Thanks Kara. I chose these colors because it's all I had that coordinated! lol. I've been crocheting up a storm but still had tons of yarn left so I didn't want to go buy some, so I decided to work with what I had.

    This isn't the BEST picture..the colors are not as dark as it appears, but they are definitely not bright and Easter-y.
