Lucy’s Apple

5 Apr

Neice2 has a birthday this month, and guess what she’s getting!

Om to the Nom!


Her very own apple, crocheted by Yours Truly.  I’m guessing by now that my sisters-in-law will have discovered my pattern – their kids are all getting apples from me this year.  Luckily, I started this little guy in plenty of time to counteract the pregnancy-induced finger swelling, carpal tunnel syndrome, and arthritis, so Miss Lucy will have a delightful Granny Smith to open on her Birthday!  Hooray!


I heard through the grapevine that Lucy’s having an owl themed party this year, so she’s also getting these, some super adorable hand-made bows constructed by a friend of mine:

And a card I made.



Husband assures me that this card, which started out as a pile of paper circles and a bottle of glue actually looks like an owl

…but I can’t tell if he’s just humoring me. What do you think?  Is it owl-ish enough to actually look like an owl?  I’m hoping Lucy won’t care much one way or the other.  If she does, I’m hoping her mommy will quickly change the subject and distract Lucy back to her awesome APPLE (which actually looks like an apple)!

I’ve had to take the apple listings off of my Etsy shop for now – what with my decreased motor skills it would take me way longer than I feel comfortable with to get any orders out, but hopefully things’ll be back up and running in the near future.  In the meanwhile, my patterns are still available, so wander on over to a Happy Little Shop & see what you can see!

AND… Happy Birthday, Lucy!  We love you!


How do you like Them apples?

4 Feb

Remember how I made breakfast for Nephew1’s birthday last year? Well…

I suppose I’ve developed a rather strong addiction to making delicious, yarny food, so Nephew2, who is turning the big *1* this month, is getting this awesomeness:

Om nom nom nom!


Yeah, that’s right.  It’s an apple.  But wait – there’s more!

ZOMG you can PEEL it!

All you have to do is peel back the sides of the apple & VOILA!  Inside are six super awesome apple bean bag wedges!


I love love LOVED this pattern so much I’m adding it as not one, but two of the brandy new items for sale over at A Happy Little Shop! Stop over today & check out the new listings!


Nephew2 is probably going to either ignore the apple or stick it in his mouth (as 1 year olds are prone to do), but some day… some day he will appreciate the yarny awesomeness that is the peel-able apple!
