Along with not sewing for a long time, I have also abstained from crocheting (amazing isn't it!!!) I would have to say that I went about 2 months without crocheting ANYTHING, which was really good for my thesis writing (it's going really well by the way!) Anyway, since this past weekend was a three day holiday which was perfect for a little bit of fun, I just had to crochet something.
What began as one amigurumi turned into a whole mess of cupcakes, apples, acorns, bears, and bunnies... I find that once I'm crocheting I get really good ideas for other amigurumi to make and since I usually already have my yarn and crochet needle out, I just end up crocheting as much as I can! So, it was pretty much nonstop crocheting this weekend, which was a nice break :D The best part of my crochet-a-palooza was that I made this little happy sad jellyfish, so named because you can move his mouth into a smile or a frown, depending on your mood (though I daresay that it is better to always keep him smiling at you.... he's so cute that way!). I love him so much, I'll be sure to make lots more in the future :D
