Sophie's Universe was finished in September of 2015.  I have not been blogging, but I want to start again. sharing the finished photo of this project seems like a good place to start.

I have also started working on my Dear Jane quilt again. Use the link above to see the newest blocks.

I have been almost exclusively working on this crochet-a-long project for a month now. There are about a dozen rows to go.  Sophie's Universe is the pattern name.

Crochet along progress

This is very different from the type of crochet patterns I am usually drawn to.  All the surface work/layers are new to me.  I am having fun with it.  I am a little disappointed with the size.  Borders are to start next and use bunches of yarn.   I hope it is a wide boarder.

Perry the Platypus approved.

11th Birthday

Noah requested and approved!

I love when the kids request things for me to make.  This one was fun and challenging.  It is the Zeekeeper from Mario and Luigi's Dream Team.  I made him up as I went along, except for the basic bowling pin shape for the body.  The body shape was from 50 yards of Fun by Rebecca Danger. 

The body was knit. The bands of feathers around body were crochet directly to the body.  The wings were knit with a shell edging and individually knit feathers. The legs are i-cord with crochet feet. The eyes, beak and plumes were crochet.  The third central eye which is closed was created by sculpting\stitching  the body base.  The leg striping and eye pupils are embroidered.

Two projects that I am enjoying

A mystery crochet along afghan. 
I love how the colors of this are working out. I was worried that using the leftovers from Perry the Platypus would make for a not so pretty afghan.

My youngest son has requested a toy based on a character from Mario and Luigi's Dream Team.  It is a Bird called the Zeekeeper.
