Abby inspired Dolly

It's not a secret that one of my most favorite TV series is Navy CIS and I think most of you know that my profile pic at social media is an "Abby" inspired Lalaloopsy Doll. (Background information: Abby Sciuto is the very symphatic forensic scientist at the Naval Criminal Investigative Service headquarters at the Washington Navy Yard.)
I got so many requests for a doll like this but I always said, that I would never do this "Abby" twice.
A few weeks ago there was a request again. So I decided to create a "Abby" from an other pattern.
Hope her new mummy loves her.

Light on, Toothless!


Two and a half years ago I crocheted my first Toothless. After I've seen the film "How to Train Your Dragon 2" I knew that I wanted to do another Toothless, but this time with the update Toothless got at this film. 
At this film he became a Titan Wing. He glows blue along the spine when he's all charged up, ready to fire his plasma blasts and his firepower level is at a higher level as never before.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - Niffler


A while back Hubby and I went to the cinema to watch the incredible film: "Fantastic beasts and where to find them." Immediately I was in love with the Niffler and I asked Hubby if I could have one for myself. Hubby told me that they are only fantasy and not real. Hasn't he still learned anything? Poor Muggle. He can't see all the magic around us. 🙈

So I serached my favorite crochet platform Ravelry for a pattern for a Niffler. Soon I found a very nice pattern and this is what I came up with.
I have to say, that I got a Niffler from Hubby for my Birthday. It's a Funko Pop character:
Here are a few of my favorite pics of the Niffler

Moana - Pua

A few weeks ago a dear colleag asked me: "Can you crochet a pua? For my little daughter?" 
I asked myself: "A what???" 😕 and switched over to Google. 

At Disney-Wiki I found this: Pua is a minor character in Disney's animated feature film, Moana. He is Moana's pot-belly pet pig and best friend.

At the internet I found many pics, too. So I answered my colleague: "I'll give it a try!" 

Here's what I came up with:

This is one of the pics I used as a template.

Thank you for visiting my little blog. Hope to see you again.

26 paletts, 10 cubic meter dirt and a little time

Hi Y'all,

hope you'll had a nice Easter. We had a very nice one and followed by a few days off.

Today I want to show you our latest project, which was totally hubby's idea. At first I was not convinced but I must confess: Good idea, darling! 💖

It's not finished yet, but I can't wait to show you.
What do you do, if you have 26 palettes, 10 cbm dirt and a little time? No idea? You build a 15 meter raised bed.
On Tuesday Hubby digged out our box trees and put them in provided containers, so we could stow them in the shed over night because the weather forecast had predicted Frost and I didn't want them to freeze. The hydrangea unfortunately did not survive the digging. 😢 While Hubby was digging in the dirt, I had to paint all the 26 palettes with wood preservative. 😒
On Thursday we built the bed.
While we were building the bed, somebody tipped off a big heap (10 cbm) of dirt in the yard.
On Friday we filled the dirt into the new bed and planted back the box trees in place.
And because it is more convenient to pick them there, the strawberry plants have also gotten a new home.
As you can see, the edge isn't that nice. 😕So there will be boards soon. 😊
Step by step our garden becomes more beautiful.

PS: In one of my last posts I promised to show you a picture of Obelix together with his wild pigs. Here it is:

Smokin' monkeys - Déjà-vu

Hello there!

The other day I was sitting at my hairdresser and we talked about my crochet-creations. So she had a look at what I've done earlier. While she was scrolling through all the pictures she found something that made her laughing so hard. So I agreed to do it again.
Here's the earlier version.
See you soon

Little Donkey

Hello!

Today I have a little Donkey for you to show. He will be a future birthday present for Soccer fan that loves Donkeys. In order to make the little one even more individual, he will get the emblem of the favorite soccer club. I can't show the emblem at the moment because I don't want to spoil the surprise.
Please have a closer look at the donkey's back. He has, like all donkeys a cross on his back.
While we're talking about soccer and fans and emblems. All orders for Emma's are done. *Yeah!* It has nearly become a whole soccer team.
Hope to see you next week.

Wild piggies for Obelix

Hello!

Let's have roast wild boar! Or 2? Two are better than one. So thought I when I crocheted these:
You may remember the Obelix Amigurumi I made for my Nephew for Christmas.
A while back he asked if I can do a boar, too, because Obelix is always eating wild boars.
Hope Obelix likes his boars. If I have a picture of Obelix and his 2 boars, I will show it to you.

Workwear for the bear

Hi there!

This weekend's project for a mental health (while crocheting Emmas) was crocheting workwear for the mascot of Hubbys Truck Driver Group. The mascot always goes with one Driver and if he meet another Driver from the Group, the mascot changes the abode.

Hope and her daughter Faith needed urgently real workwear so they don't always dirt their fur. So I created them both a pair of matching working pants. For the bandanna of Hope I choose the look of "Rosie the Riveter".
Thank you for stopping by.

A little bit of green

Hi Y'all,

here's my little contribution for St. Patricks day decoration
The Luck of the Irish sign was one of the first creations I made with my Silhouette back in 2015. The little Puppet was made the same year. I call these oldies but goldies.

This year I have 2 easy peasy new decoration items:
  1.  A green candle in an with gold ornamental gravel filled glas bowl.
  2. An irish blessing I found over at pinterest. I printed it out and put it in a golden frame I had on hand.
Finish is the decoration. Thanks for visting my little blog.

Hi there!

Another quick and easy crocheting project in-between is a slouchy beanie like this. It's worked in continuous rounds of double-crocheted stiches. The cuff is knitted.
Otherwise I continue to working on some Emmas to finish the orders I got.

Thanks for droppin' in and hope to see you next week.

Happy to be home again

Yoo-Hoo!

Today I have you some big news *drum-roll*: I finished the wall art at our entrance (for now). Can you believe it? It only took half a year.
Back in August last year we started the renovation of our entrance and there was only one thing left on the to-do-list:
  • find/make new wall arts

A few weeks ago we installed these little nightlights with motion detector, so we don't have to switch on the ceiling lights at night, to avoid stepping on the cats.
Finally I found a Floral-Ornamental Border that Hubby and I like, both. I didn't paint the border, as usual. I cutted it out from vinyl with the silhouette and sticked it on. Because we used non-woven wallpaper it is sooo easy to remove the stickers without residue.
Last but not least I wanted to have a quote and a picture that reffers all the creatures living in our home. So I went for a statement Hubby often uses when he's back home for the weekend
and a picture that includs the cats, Hubby and I.
What do you think? How do you like it?

Thanks for stoppin' by and hope to see you next time
