Amigurumi Owls in a Bush

Amigurumi Owls in a Bush

Two owls in a bush, 
Two hooters in the leaves,
It's been raining for 3 days,
Bring the sun out please.

Two owls in a plant,
Two hooters starting to chant,
It's been raining for 3 days,
It seems we need a transplant.

Two owls in a baby tree,
Two hooters planning a party,
It's been raining for 3 days,
We could probably rent a pool for free.

Amigurumi Pony Patrol

Amigurumi Pony Patrol

How did we get into this?
Eh. The agent said it was a once in a life time opportunity. He said we'd get a lot of face time.

We need to fire that guy. Everyone is staring at us and not because we look cool. Why is this block wall need it's own guards?
I'm not sure, I didn't catch the whole story, but something about art, blah blah blah, famous artist, blah, worth a lot of money. Sorry, you know I can't pay attention that long.

I'm making all our contracts from now on.

So you think we could steal a part of the wall and sell it?
Hm, I hadn't thought of that. Why don't we just kick it and collect on the insurance?

That's a good try at a decent idea, but I think the cops would recognize your hoofprint and we are the beneficiaries of the insurance policy.
Ok, let's just start charging everyone who walk by for looking at it.

Eh, eh you! You owe us 5 dollars!! Oh! That's two looks, now you owe us $10!

Amigurumi Crochet Land Octopus Parenting

Amigurumi Crochet Land Octopus Parenting

Son, there are a lot of dangers out there and you need to be prepared. It'll be years until your big and can just ignore everyone and even that takes practice. Right now you need to concentrate on being fast and hiding a lot.

Can't you just protect me? It's kind of your job.

Sorry son. I'm just as good at ignoring you as I am everyone else.

Crochet Tomorrow

Crochet Tomorrow

Tomorrow seems so far away
I've school all day 
and bills to pay
Oh why or why is tomorrow so far away

Tomorrow I'm going ice skating with Pete
He's the coolest guy I'll ever meet
and his dog is neat
Oh why or why can't I be upbeat.

Tomorrow seems so far away
I still need to walk a far way
Just to eat at a buffet
Oh why or why is tomorrow so far away.

A Trail Paved in Crochet

A Trail Paved in Crochet

I don't think this is the way Sam.
Of course it's the way. It's One Way, by definition, this is the way.

There was that turn that we passed. We should go back and go that way.
The instructions say 'go straight.' So no, we're not walking an hour backward to 'turn left.' Just trust me Bud. This is the way.

I'd trust you more if you didn't get lost 4 of the last 5 times we went out hiking.
Those were flukes and you know it. This is the way.

A fluke is when you do something a hundred times and always get the same result and then something unexpected happens the 101th time and you get a different result. I would say you NOT getting lost would be a fluke. (snicker)
Bud, I.....well....I never!

Never say never Sam, you didn't get us lost that one time.

Pony Trail

Two ponies go in,
One comes out.
Did one get lost?

Or, did one have doubt,
And find his own way out?

Crochet Race to Friday

Crochet Race to Friday

In a race of slightly smaller red pony vs slightly larger bluish purple pony (with a mane!), who will win.

If I were a betting gal I'd say Red. The little ones are fast with quick reflexes and can turn quickly.

BUT.....bluish purple ponies have the advantage of long legs. Very helpful on hills.

While it looks like Red is in the lead right now, what if I were to tell you that they are racing to see who gets the top LAST....

Mind blowing

Amigurumi Sing-A-Long

Amigurumi Sing-A-Long

Dancing on the floor.
Dancing near a door.
We won't stop! No, we won't stop!
We're dancing fools to the core.

Spinning here and there.
Spinning everywhere.
We won't stop! No, we won't stop!
Our spinning is cool and rare.

Twirling to and fro.
Twirling row by row.
We won't stop! No, we won't stop!
Even if you ask, we won't go.

~Jazz hands!!!~

[I'll be posting the free crochet pattern for these little guys this weekend so stay tuned!]

Ode to a Crochet Sunny Day

Ode to a Crochet Sunny Day

Bring back the sun!
Bring back the joy
Bring back the leaves on the trees
Bring back the warm winds and picnics please!

Bring back the sun!!
Bring back the exhilaration
Bring back the tall grass and bushes
Bring back the hiding and pouncing and ambushes!

Bring back the sun!
I'm cold and the ground is bare
It's too sad to go out
and it's no fun anywhere

April is Coming Crochet Bunny

April is Coming Crochet Bunny

Now that we've gotten St. Patrick's Day out of the way, it time for my day - Bunny Day. Ok, ok, also called Easter.

Listen, I know it's hard to believe, but I get zero respect around here. All the other amigurumi run around having fun and they don't listen. I say, 'Come paint eggs!' and they ignore me. I say, 'Walk don't run!' and they ignore me. I've tried pointing at them, raising my voice, stamping my foot. Nothing works.

BUT, on bunny day - My Day - (ok, ok, Easter), all the amigurumi crochet animals have to listen to me. It's the best day ever. I'm all like - 'Find the eggs!' - and they run off as fast as they can to find all the eggs. (I love that game!) And then I'm all like 'Go get your baskets!' and they run off and do that. Why can't the listen to me all the time?

I love love Bunny Day, aka My Day, aka Easter

Happy Crochet St. Patrick's Day!!

Happy Crochet St. Patrick's Day!!

When you see the green men (and girls!!) coming,
You should probably start a'runnin',
'Cause the green men bring joy,
And silly-ness, fun and maybe a toy.

You know the kids will be mad,
But you'll kind of be glad,
Because for once it's a holiday for you,
Instead of your minnie-mes one and two!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

[The crochet amigurumi bunnies and I will be spending the day shoveling ourselves out of what hopefully will be the last snow of the year! Comment below to tell us all about your fun St. Patty's Day plans. 

And a special shout out to my mom and dad who were married on this day over 40 years ago - Happy Anniversary!!]

Deep Crochet Thoughts

Deep Crochet Thoughts

Dan, why are we here?
Hi Gerry! When did you get here?

I've been here all day. We walked up here together.
Oh yeah. Sorry, I've been kind of out of it. What did you ask me?

Why are we here.
Oh, well, I really wanted to see another dragon and I know they like rocks.

No no, I mean why do we exist?
Well...I exist because the meteor missed me when it hit the earth. The crochet dinosaurs got wiped out, but me and the other amigurumi crochet dragons were in the caves having our annual holiday party and gift exchange so we were protected from the blast.

That wasn't quite - wait, you have an annual party? With dragons? If you see dragons once a year then you could just call a dragon or wait till the party to see them......Dan,why are we here?
Dan! Why are we here!?
I guess I don't know. It'll be one of those questions we'll wonder about forever. Come one Gerry, let's go home.

[Those crazy guys. If you're interested in having your own Dan the Dragon, check out my etsy shop for the pattern or click here. Thanks!!]

A Crochet Sunny Day!!!

A Crochet Sunny Day!!!

It only took FOUR MONTHS!!! but we had a first really warm sunny day today. I know everyone is thinking...'what about that day last week?' Well, that day was not nearly as warm or as beautiful and you still needed to wear a jacket to go outside. Today was glorious and beautiful and exactly was all us poor East-coasters needed.

So anyway, as you know, May is not a cold weather gal. She's been super super whiny since winter kicked in - you know - around when Thanksgiving happened (you can't seem me, but I look really annoyed).

Anyways, May has been endlessly whining about cold and no sun and how she needs vitamin D, so the minute the sun came up today she was out the door and sunning herself. But at least it worked, NO WHINING!!!

So, if you're feeling blue and don't know what to do,
try a little sunlight on your toes,
a few rays on your nose and
smile just a little.....[or I'll spray you with the hose!]

Amigurumi Daredevil

Amigurumi Daredevil

Don't fall, don't fall, don't fall don't fall, don't fall.

I should have started with juggling chainsaws or eating fire. I'm going to break my neck up here!

Help help! I shouldn't have chosen a sport where I could seriously injure myself!

I don't think anyone can hear me. I'll have to jump. I couldn't have left step ladder near by? How did I even get up here in the first place!?

This'll teach me. Those guys on TV made it seem WAYYYYYYY easier than this.

......MOM! MOM!!!!

Old vs New Crochet Amigurumi

Old vs New Crochet Amigurumi

In my day in took a few weeks to get made and a lot of back tracking and do overs. I waited forever just to have an arm. You Amigurumi these days have it easy, getting made in a week and all your appendages sewed on correctly.

Yup, mom's gotten really good - she is super fast now.

And the cleaning products they have now! I had a stain for a year when I was younger. You probably don't even know what a stain is!

Dad, you really need to get over this. Just think, you paved the way for me, isn't that great?

Hell no! The dog carried me around in his mouth and one of the babies chewed on me!

I'm gonna go.

Amigurumi Pony Goes to College

Amigurumi Pony Goes to College

Son, I am so proud of you for getting into RaceTech University. I know you are going to do great. Just remember to keep your head low, stretch out your legs, and stay away from enhancing drugs. 

Don't worry dad. I've got it all under control. I've got my books, my bag, directions to the school. I'll be fine. 

Where's your suitcase? I'll help you pack it into the car.

What do you mean? I'm staying here, I'm just driving to the University each day. 

No son, I took the liberty of registering you for student housing. Your going away to college and your mom and I are turning your room into a sewing studio. 

But....I.....sewing studio?

Come on, I'll help you pack.

An Amigurumi Snow Day

An Amigurumi Snow Day

Cici: Bean told me that if you add a Mentos to a bottle of soda it will explode.
Kay: That's cool. What kind of soda?
Cici: Any kind of soda.
Kay: We should go try it.
Cici: It's snowing outside
Kay: Right, the bathroom then.

Mom had forgot about Cici and Kay's love of science when she asked them to entertain themselves while she went shopping for groceries. When she returned home it was immediately apparent that something had occurred, but it would be a few hours before she discovered the event that had cause her usually energetic bees to sit quietly and color for several hours.

Cici!!! Kay!!! Come clean this us right now!!!

A Crochet Review of the Oscars

A Crochet Review of the Oscars

Samuel: I liked the green dresses and the glittery ones, but I don't know about black. Seems very 'funeral' to me.
Bud: Charlize Theron was a vision, black is beautiful. 

Samuel: And what was up with all the white tuxes!? I just don't understand fashion.
Bud: Obviously.

Samuel: Says the guy who wears Uggs all the time.
Bud: Have you tried them? It's like stepping on pillows all day. 
Samuel: Well they look ridiculous. 
Bud: Don't judge man, you're better than that. 

Samuel: The pizza thing was cool. Wish someone would surprise us with pizza.
Bud: We can only hope man, we can only hope. I don't think that guy above us staring out the window will, but maybe those turtles in front of us will. 
Samuel: I'm going to go chase that guy down, he looked like he had a candy bar. I'm starving. 

[I hope everyone had a lovely Oscars2014!!]
