Mini Yellow Henchmen

Beedoo beedoo beedoo Here are some Mini Yellow Henchmen! Long story short...I was looking for Minion pattern to make a friend of mine for her birthday. I saw Sarah Wood's Minion pattern on Craftree...and after making that one(so cute!), I decided to create my own smaller version. Mine is much smaller, and quicker to make. The pattern for mine is also now free on I only take half the credit for the design, as I did use Sarah's as inspiration!

Next year Fair entries continued...

Working from my Ipad, and the page would not advance so I could add more pics to my last post. are more...

Hank, the tall elf from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Christmas Special
He is 3D tatted. I make a new character from that show every year.

And Unikoosas...Unicorn slippers

I guess I can only add 2 photos when using my more later!


It is now nearing the end of June, so I decided to check out the Fair details.
I was informed there will be no Open Class entries allowed this year.
Hmph. Well, I am both disappointed and relieved.
Disappointed, because I did have some pretty cool stuff already made for the Fair.
But, a bit relieved, because I don't have to rush to get more items finished and, I don't have to worry about any of my items being contaminated with the Covid-19 virus, and therefore having to disinfect everything when I get it back home.
I know, some people think it (the virus) is not that big of a deal...but, I have to take care of myself and my very elderly Mother...and we don't need to catch something that could potentially kill either of us, if I can take precautions to prevent it.
And... I do. Lots of them.
It makes me angry 😡 that when I go out in my mask and gloves, people think it is ok to walk right up to me and gab or whatever. No, it is not.  Or cut my deli meat or get my fresh foods with no mask on...nope. Or pretty much ignore the precautions I am taking and try to bypass them!
Or berate people like me who are taking these safety steps as being stupid and gullible. Hm, well, people probably thought that during the Black Plague...look where that got them.
Really, I don't care if you don't want to wear a mask, or take any precauions...that is totally up to you, you have the right to live as you please, but respect my right to live as I please..and stay away from me! Ok, so, this got off track...down off of my soap box. are some of the things I was planning on putting in the Fair this year...hopefully I can next year.

New year new projects 2020

Happy 2020.
Yes, it is March...but c'est la vie.
I have had problems with my crafting mojo.
So not a lot to show, yet.
I have not seen the Mandalorian yet, but who could resist the Child?
I made this one from a pattern on Ravelry called "Cute am I" and added some of my own embelishments. Soooo cute!

I just finished this guy...
Declan Fledermaus

I created him to become a Traveling Friend in the crochet group 
Friend's Crocheting Together and More....on Ravelry.
He will journey around the country, maybe overseas, and meet new friends, then return home to me!
He is crocheted and has needlefelting highlights.

                                                                    More to come!
