Kristie,

You've done it again! These little guys are SO CUTE!

 

I ordered the Lazy Days 2 pattern from your Etsy store last night...and the Under the Sea a couple of weeks ago. I cannot wait to get started on some of these things once we get moved and settled. (We are re-locating on about 4 weeks with my dh job). Heck, I think I just need to go and buy your other patterns on Etsy, just so I have them, too. I'll be a crocheting fool once we are settled.

 

Thanks!

Amy

How cute are these ladybugs!!?!!! Thanks so much for sharing?

Someone else had a suggestion, so I will put in mine as well. How about a cutely snail, or a lizard/gecko sort of beasty? You are so terribly talented! We all appreciate your generosity to use!
