Easter Crochet Story

Recommended Posts

Once upon a time there was a cupcake:

who decided to make some gifts for Easter:

When her teenage son said...... " mmmmm that looks like a boob..." as he started eating the sweet goodies within...

 

...........................so she added a green stalk to the cherry....

 

She then visited a place called crochetville and stumbled across a person called Yarnlover who had caught a bunny bug...

encouraged by yarnlovers enthusiasm cupcake thought I must try those as well:

her beloved son said: "they look like they are crazy mice...with mad mouse disease..."

 

mmmm so after some thought cupcake thought .... " I will ask my friends for a pattern for a bunny brooch". Her request was answered:

Cupcake was full of joy and went forth and made bunny brooches:

Her ever loving , ever annoying darling son then said: " Mum they look they are on speed....." :eek

 

After a few days had passed she started pondering about Easter and new beginnings. Bunnies had become cliche... so what came first... the Hen cluck cluck...

or the chicken...

Her increasingly picky, first born incredibly blessed son then said: " They look like they have ADHD...."

 

"GOOD GRIEF" said cupcake, I will try an inaminate object, totally unable to become infested, go mad, develop an addiction which will be enjoyed by all:

So the baskets were made, and the eggs placed with in.

 

At this point, her incredibly imaginative , ever precious son said.."mmm old ladies crochet...." as he ate the mms and mms and fantales one for one as we filled the egg shells...

 

However, after her trials, cupcake now had a huge pile of goodies to give to her colleagues at work

They all lived happily ever after...

and cupcake thought how lucky she was to have sons interested enough to comment.....

 

She then hurried off to find the patterns she used in case people were interested.... but in the meantime enjoy the slide show....

Nothing like a precious man child, is there! You son sounds like a great kid and your crochet is delightful, imaginative, and cute. Your coworkers are lucky. Thanks for the great story.

A much needed diversion! I enjoyed your son's comments. My dd is almost 13, and they remind me of something she'd say. Your crochet, however, is wonderful and most certainly NOT old-ladyish.

I have 3 teenage smart alec, moody, ever lovable sons.

This is one of my favourite photos of them. It ws taken at Point Lookout on the East Coast of Australia. This is about 45 minutes from where we live, and there was a storm brewing at sea.

 

I have about 80 staff, but I will give the goodies to the ladies in the office, my managers and other interested propeller heads. :D

 

Here is the link for the basket. I made up a crochet flower for mine.

Here is the Hen: http://members.aol.com/Sbaycgoa/patchick.htm

 

I added an extra row of dc to mine. They seem to sit better. I found some plastic eggs at Spotlight here and once filled with lollies they balance the hen to stand.

 

Here is the chicken:

This one is a bit fiddly so I used the general idea but did one piece as like the bunny cosy that yarnlover used:

and here is the bunny Brooch. I put a safety pin on the back instead of a magnet.

I was a bit limited in my pom pom choice. The eyes were zany with eyelids and lashes. img71341vb.jpg

 

I had a lot of fun with this lot, and will take them off to work tomorrow. I will keep a hen or two for grandma, and the lady next door.:manyheart
