Life gets in the way

Happy New Year!

I’d like to say I’ll be posting more this year. Maybe I will! I certainly want to; we’ll see. As the title says… Life gets in the way… sometimes.

In December, I finished another amigurumi doll that I designed myself again adapting the lalylala Dirk the Dragon pattern (it’s so inspiring- well worth buying).

I designed a cow/calf. It’s half the size of the original Dirk doll and has horns, different ears and a simple tail. The scarf is a nice loose stripey you crochet that was quick to make (apart from the weaving in of ends!).

I’ve realised I’ve not shared the half sized sheep I made last year. I will as I was really pleased with how it turned out. The calculations when halving the original pattern all happened then and I just applied to this project.

  1. I love the new doll, and really would love to see the sheep – I remember you talking about it last year πŸ™‚
    I’m also glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t post regularly – most of my blogging friends consistently put me to shame with their output! Lol

    • I’d love to post more. Sadly I let work affect my homelier way more than is healthy. It seems that if I’m not doing prep and planning for teaching I’m too tired from a day at school. One day I’ll get there πŸ™‚

      • That really is the lot of teachers nowadays, isn’t it? 😦
        I hope you find more ‘you’ time during the holidays – and that you’re not weighed down with the ever-present homework! πŸ™‚

  2. Wow! I love your cow! Beautiful ❀ ❀
