Baby Frank the Goat

A fun, lopsided farm animal for your barnyard collection.

Personally, I think he's slightly off-balance because he *is* a baby & hasn't got his legs working properly yet :)

The Bunny Bust

Your posh great aunt Mildred has a bust of Beethoven on the mantel, and now you can have a bust of your very own.

Minecraft Sheep

This minecraft sheep looks as though it could do with some internal reinforcement with plastic canvas to give it more of that boxy minecraft look.

Once you try that, it should look fantastic!

Minecraft Dirt Block

Love that dirt block!
Instantly recognisable gift for any minecraft fan :)

Since this is made up of rectangles (not crocheted in the round), it should keep it's shape without plastic canvas inserts.

Borderlands 2 Claptrap (CL4P-T4P)

Another great Nerdigurumi pattern.  Wonderful gift for any fan of the game Borderlands 2.

This pattern is not for the faint-hearted, though.
You'll need plastic canvas, copper electrical wiring and good crochet skills to get this baby up on his wheel.

Minecraft Creeper - Crochet

Okay, I found one!   (I promised, didn't I?)

And what's more, it's by Emjay at Nerdigurumi, so you know it's going to look great :D

I think I'll have to break my doctor's injunction against crochet for this pattern!

Note: you'll need some plastic canvas to help your creeper keep his shape.

Minecraft Creeper - Knit

Aren't they perfect!
I have a 9yo son who is absolutely obsessed with minecraft, and he would be over the moon if I were able to knit this for him.

Unfortunately, I don't knit, but his grandmother bought one of the 'official' creeper dolls from a game store for his birthday. So I'm off the hook.

I promise I'll be looking for crochet pattern & patterns other minecraft characters, like Steve ;)

Back on Board

Sorry I've been such a stranger around here, folks.

I've developed tennis elbow in both my arms & can no longer crochet. I also need to limit my time at the computer, but that's not such a problem.

As a result, I really let things slip here as I became more involved in my art.

I've called by from time to time, but neglected posting or fixing broken links.

You already know that I'm drawn towards the strangely cute, and I guess my artwork reflects that. It's different, to say the least.

I hope you'll be kind enough to take a look at my art blog and etsy store sometime..

In return, I promise to be around here more often with posts and updates ;)
