Stingray

This project is moving forward.  I'm waiting on some paracord to close the island/ocean bag and that will be complete.  I've started the ocean tower, which is supposed to be a bag corral reef type toy.  Still making the little critters to live there.

Chelsea Dress

In my previous olden days of making Barbie clothes Kelly and her friend Tomi were the smallest of the Barbie clan measuring in it 4 1/2 inches.  I made a handful of outfits for Kelly.  There is so little to actually crochet for that it was hard. 

Chelsea is now the smallest and larger but still only 6" .  This still leaves little room for shaping and sizing of clothing.  I'm amazed at the creativity people have with small items but it is not my best avenue.  However, I will do what I can to see that the family is dressed before they head off for their donation destination.

Couple years ago I made a Jelly Fish for my daughter cats to play with. It was big, about 8" - 10" long. I told my daughter to hang that on a door knob. Cats did NOT like that fish!. They never wanted to play with that.  They like all toys I made for them, but not that Jelly Fish! LOL

I remember I put a lot of work in to that for nothing.

I am a moron at times.  I was looking all over trying to find a clown fish pattern and I already had one in a book I bought this fall!:bang:lol

Clown Fish

I can't telly you how many times I've either printed out a pattern I already had or was ready to buy a book of patterns I had already gotten rid of years earlier...I think it's a sign we are crochet-a-holics🤣

And I LOVE the clown fish - it's perfect!

Really cute fish!! If I could ever find a good way to keep my patterns organized and searchable it would be a miracle. I know my yarn stash is an unorganized lot, but it's great compared to my patterns. LOL

Here are two of my latest hats for the Warmth For Warriors hat drive. I tried a new pattern and bulky yarn for the first one. The pattern is called Dream Weaver beanie and it quick and easy. The second one is a striped Lakeside hat crocheted with scrap yarns.
