Yes, once again it’s the “Hap-happiest time of the year”.  Someone should write a song about it also being the busiest time of year! Anyway, I have been having a little crochet fun on the side. One of my beginning crochet students wanted to make this bunny for her daughter, and I decided that it was so cute I would create a Santa Bunny. I know you can’t really tell it’s a bunny, but he does have a little tail on his backside. I tried giving him a nose and mouth, but somehow he just wasn’t as cute, so I decided to leave them off. You can find the original pattern in “Crochet One-Skein Wonders: 101 Projects from Crocheters Around the World”, Sam the Big-Bottomed Bunny designed by Laura Biondi. (You can see a pic of Sam at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sam-the-big-bottomed-bunny.) I chose to make  a little pouch out of t-shirt material and filled it with pennies so the bunny would stand up. (Note to self – next time remember to put a couple stitches through the pouch because it tends to slide to the side, which just makes the bunny look drunk. Not good.)

My second project was to make these little Angel Bell ornaments as presents. I ended up making twelve of them (I sure hope I made enough) and I really like how they turned out. The original design came from Rhonnda Mol, owner of Oombawka Design, found at http://oombawkadesigncrochet.com/2016/08/crochet-angel-amigurumi-pattern.html. I really suggest you check out her site because she really has some great designs. Of course, I made a few changes to Rhonnda’s design, but then again, it’s so much easier tweaking a pattern than writing one from scratch. And I had to include a little jingle bell tied under her skirt because this world definitely need as many angels with wings as it can get. IMO.

And now to tweak a quote one of my favorite poems, “Happy Holidays to all,  and to all a good night!”
