Welcome to my blog

If you enjoy finding a lot of different outlets for your creativity, then we may just be kindred spirits.
This blog is an outlet for my interest in miniatures, crochet, plastic canvas, and many other various arts and crafts.

I also love walking, taking digital photos, and most recently, have rediscovered an old love...bike riding! I purchased an amazing new bike, a comfy Townie by Electra this summer, and have been having a grand time exploring the area as though for the first time. It's like being a kid again!

If you enjoy any of these things too, pour a cup of coffee and tea, sit down, and join me.


Take care!

Crocheted Chickens, lots of chickens, lol.

Hi Guys,
I totally forgot to post photos of my cute crocheted chickens!  I made them to give away at Easter.  They're Easter Egg cozies, and so cute!  I made so many of them and still didn't have enough as my cousin requested one more, lol.
 I started making them in real chicken colors, but then added some pinks and lilacs for fun.
 I glued on little eyes (fishing lure eyes, for the most part), and embroidered one chicken's eyes (didn't like that look).
 I colored eggs for the first time in ages and had so much fun!  I'm going to do it every year from now on.  I had colorful breakfasts with the left overs for 3 days, lol.

 I put the chickens and eggs in a tray and a family friend held them up for this photo.  Then I just passed the tray around and let everyone pick their own color. 


 I was very surprised that my Uncle Buck chose the hot pink chicken!  His daughter Jane ended up with it so I had to give him another one.
My best friend Laurie liked her chicken.

I really enjoyed making them!  You can find the pattern for free on Ravelry.
