MY NEMESIS NO MORE....

I think I may have worked this crochet thing out at last!!!! It really couldn't have been easier:-)
Girl Child leaves Elementary School this year...... she's really excited about it (mom on the other hand - not so much!!! I'll admit it, I'm having a hard time with this transition.)

I saw this amigurumi graduation owl pattern on the Lion Brand website, and I thought he'd look really cute peeking out of the bouquet of flowers we plan to give her on her last day of school. I did add the ribbon around his neck with the 2010 charm. I thought it would be a nice memento in the years to come, especially given she is a really sentimental child:-)

For a first attempt, I'm very happy with the way he turned out:-) He came together really quickly..... even with me crocheting at a snails place. I enjoyed making him, so much infact, that I've ordered a book of patterns for other amigurumi animals and items....... can't wait until it arrives:-)

Off I go now to do some apron sewing....
Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by:-)
