Well Christmas is over for another year. I hope you all had a good one.
I got a few early Christmas presents
This isn't my first magazine commission but it is the first to make it into print. I was asked for a doorstop and only had a few weeks to come up with the design and pattern.
I wanted it to be simple and suitable for all crochet skill levels but I also wanted it to pretty so everyone would want to make or buy one. With owls being so on tread I adapted my small owl pattern into this lovely chunky doorstop.
That wasn't it for magazine surprises this Christmas as my complimentary copy of inside crochet magazine landed too.
So with Christmas out of the way its time to start thinking of the new year. I've got lots planned starting with two new pattern sets, woodland cuties and flippers and fins. I'll be adding more felt work and embroidery to my new patterns. I like this style and I think it makes my designs just a bit different to all the other amigurumi patterns out there.
Just to tempt you here is the first pattern for 2013 Walter the whale.
