i'm a craft book junky...

So, I have a confession to make... I LOVE craft/sewing/knitting books. I saw this one in Michaels when my mom was here and it was love at first sight! Of course there was no way I was going to pay Michaels prices for it, so I waited for my next Amazon coupon to come and now it is mine :) I also got Anna Marie Horner's Book Seems to Me and am enjoying that one as well!

Anyway, back to my Amigurumi book, I had planned to work on some other projects yesterday, but instead started looking through the book with the kids and decided to give the little turtle a try.
I think his head is a bit big, but he's still cute and the kids love him. It was my first time crocheting a round, I have just done scarves so far, and it took me a bit to catch on to following a pattern (another thing I have never done with my crocheting), but I think I have a better handle on it now and hope that my next try will produce better results. I think I might make these for the kids Easter baskets this year. They have all picked out their favorite animal and put in their request, I just need a few skeins of yarn and some kid free moments to work on them!

Very fun! I cleaned out my bedtable book basket today and left only Bend the Rules Sewing, The Creative Family, and Power of a Praying Parent. Isn't it funny what doesn't get cut? I think that's a cry of our hearts.

Super cute!! I got a Lion Brand catalog in the mail a couple of weeks ago. I saw some similiar ones in their catalog that I thought I would like to try. I LOVE your turtle! ;-)
