Plush Buzzard! and Thrifty Finds

So as my last post stated, I was commissioned to make a stuffed Buzzard for a friend of a friend. Here’s how it came out!


Concept drawing by yours truly. :)

Ian and I took a trip to the local thrift store the other day, here is my loot!


I am wearing this tie today as a headband, and I have better plans for it eventually.


Aren’t these coasters super sweet?? They are for my future craft room.


And last but not least, I had bought the same egg beater from a garage sale while on vacation in MA, but mine was so rusted it probably isn’t safe to touch food. Therefore, i got a new one to actually use.. and maybe I’ll hang the old up in my craft room with all my other antiques. :)

Keep an Eye out for some cool finds. :) I was mainly hunting for fabric and came home with those items a big storage container. I think I’m addicted to storage, but I barely have any! We’ll see what happens when I actually get my craft room. :)

Amazon Shopping Spree

I bought about 10 new books off of Amazon with a few giftcards from Xmas… 2 came already! :


Written by Miyako Kanamori. Both start off with stories about each character, and are told like a children’s book (“Happy Gloves” is narrated by the Chipmunk on the cover hehe), with ideas, and patterns in the back! I plan to try them out, and create my own little fellows as well. :)

I have the “Complete Idiots Guide to Amigurumi” coming as well (i would love to learn how to crochet little critters as well is sew them!).. along with many other craft books. I’m super excited. Hopefully some came in the mail today. I must hurry home and check. :)
