What I do in my spare time - AKA - how I avoid housework!

So it's another quick post from me - this time with something a little different. I taught myself how to do Amigurumi crochet las year, and decided to challenge myself to make some toys for the 'little' people in my life. I have notched up a few creatures now, so you may be seeing a few more posts like this, but here is the first 'big' project that I finished.

He's called a pillow pal and the idea is that he can be cuddled (or layer on!) in bed cos he's nice and flat like a pillow.

The pictures aren't too great as they were taken in the run up to Christmas when it was very dark, and he wouldn't fit on my windowsill which is where I normally take pictures of my cards!

I have to sa, I had a few scary moments with this guy, but, once he was done, it was very hard to part with him!

I am going to enter him in to a few challenges, but really I am just pleased to have him immortalised in blog land!!

Thanks for visiting!
