My daughter does not like stuff animals. Usually she takes them and just throws them on the floor and that's the end of it.
Yesturday, while I was at the market I had to play the "drop and grab" game. It was calling me.
I only had 50 cents (No dollar bills and no other quarters). What the heck, since there are new stuff animals in the machine. I wasn't feeling very lucky, but the arm drops and I grabbed for a yellow "goofy" dog. It barely got the legs so I'm doubtful. Yes, it's going to make it. Score!
I'm like a big kid. I gave it to my daughter in the car and she just drops it on the floor! Oh well.
Later during the day, I see the dog in various places. I ask my husband if he moved it, and he said no. I actually saw her with the dog a few times. Now this morning, I put the dog next to my daughter and she was playing with it, if only for a few minutes! I love being a mommy...I have a great daugher :D!
Now on to crochet.....
Here's the completed project! I finished this on Saturday, day before Father's Day! (My husband laughs at me because I cropped my face out of the photo)! My "1st" again using THREAD! Size 3, Aunt Lydia thread! It was fun and I love the top. I love the look of thread and I love the stitch. I had to redo part of the back but no problem. Next time, I will make it in a medium. It's too small but that's okay. Another lesson for the books.
My current project is the "lacy days of summer" top. I will probably make it into a baby doll top. I love how this top looks and what some of the other crocheters have made. It's an "experience" pattern so I was a little scared. It's taking me several tries to get it right, but I think I got it now. Take a look! Can't wait to finish this one :D!
