Henry Hippo and Leo Lion

And then there were four!

Meet the gang. Elliot Elephant, Henry Hippo, Leo Lion and Ronnie Rhino.

They are an amicable bunch and like nothing more than hanging about on the sofa before they go off to their new home.

A bunny for Bethany

It’s so nice to have completed something in super quick time. About a week of snatching an hour here and there. It made me remember how much I love my crochet.

Bethany’s bunny

Recently I was thrilled with the news that one of my old school friends had welcomed into the world baby Bethany.

Now I’m sure Sian is far too busy to have ever read my blog so I think I’m safe to show you the progress on my latest amigurumi, Bethany’s bunny.Haakpatroon Dolf de Paashaas

She looks pretty grim, headless, but there will be a head, arms and ears. Read the rest of this entry
