Hello September

Pretty much the same as the title. 

I attempted to think of "non-craft related" blog post ideas... but then things kind of went KA-BOOM!, so there's nothing of non-craft related thing to show pictures of. 

Thus, here are some pictures of craft items that may interest you: 

 Woodland animal fabric! They will make very cute (and hopefully inspiring project bags!) 

A whale with baby safe eyes! This one is a free download that can be found here.

 To the right is a yarn cake that was made with a yarn winder! Yup, I took the plunge and bought a Knit Picks Yarn Winder-- for $20, it's a great value! I've been having a yarn-winding obsession lately! The only complaint I have is that there are no "directions" in the sense of how many yards/grams are recommended for one cake. I accidentally let one skein get so big the machine made a loud click. But it still works, so all is well!
A slug that has been named Violet! The name was obviously inspired by her colour, but has thus turned into a demand for two more slugs named Klaus and Sunny. 

Sunny should obviously be yellow-- any colour suggestions for Klaus? 

(Yay for book references!)

And last, but definitely my favourite, is my self-designed lion! :) 

Isn't he adorable?! 

His name is Singh the Lion. For a first animal design, not too shabby, right?! 

Singh will be making an appearance at the State Fair as my "Crocheted: Toy" entry. Fingers crossed!

Check out this blog for more Finished Objects!


  1. All of them are super cute but the lion is my favorite too! You did a great job and good luck at the state fair :)

  2. That's the nicest looking slug I've every seen, they don't look like that in my garden. Thanks for sharing.

  3. They all look so cute! Good luck at the fair! That Knit Picks ball winder has been in my wish list for some time. Glad to hear you like it!

  4. I don't know what I did before my ball winder... I hope you love having one! Your little slug and lion are both really adorable.

  5. I love the lion best. It is soooo cute. :) I really want to make one too.
