I am currently working a lot in the garden and you can find me there all day long with my grapevines. I found there a lot of the sweet little ladybirds. I got inspired by them and crocheted such a cute little guy.
Actually I wanted to crochet a gray mouse, but then I decided to make my mouse with the color ecru. Now I had to decide about the colors for the dress, and I thought that gray with a contrasting color looks quite well.
It is currently very cold in Greece. The last days it rained constantly and a cold wind blew, I could not take walks with the dogs.
Hector and Paprika, the little field mice, had been playing catch and hide and seek all morning. When they got tired, they sat down on the boards of an old barn and enjoyed the first rays of spring sunshine.
For some time I had the desire to change my previous blog design and replace it with a fresher look. Finally I found a design that I like very much. There is also a “Donate” button, so you can support me and my blog and my future projects.
My niece saw on television a report about the Loch Ness monster in Scotland and she was fascinated by the story: Nessie is a monster that, despite many efforts, nobody was able to find it and there are still speculations as to whether it really exists.
When I first saw Peppa, the little piggy-girl, I wondered that Peppa had so many fans. I thought, she did not look sooo cute. My niece agreed with me – Peppa is a design that is made for small children.
Some time ago I was looking for someone who wanted to start with me a joint project. I wanted to crochet an Amigurumi and was looking for a talented story writer, who would love to write a children’s story for the doll.
The Amigurumi exhibition in New York (http://resobox.com/amigurumi-artists-15/) begins on 11 December. I take part and my little package is already on the way there.
This time the organizers of the exhibition wanted to show how the Amigurmi culture is developing in each area of the world and they asked for a characteristic or feature of the country or local area.
The idea for a frog came from Claudia in Germany. One of the first amigurumi that I designed, was a little frog. Nothing fancy, but Daniela saw the picture on my Facebook page and asked me if I had a pattern for the frog.
