Obsession continues....

Just when I thought I discovered all my passions a new one has popped up.
I remember a few years back knitting and thinking crocheting wasnt as nice as knitting. Or there wasnt enough patterns I liked.
So much has changed.

There is so much I want to crochet now. However, I havent exhausted my bunny phase yet. I need to make more ... and more...

So I went I got some yarn.

I felt like I do when I pick out brushes and paint.
That giddy sensation that just builds in you. You see every possible project in these soft balls of color and I just finally had to stop myself from TOUCHING these skeins. Touching them was causing the burning in me to flair hotter. Being tactile does that.

By the time I finishing picking all the colors and textures that inspired me, my cart was full and I felt full. It was like that silly drunken sensation. No better feeling.

Yep my cupath and bagath is full.

Now to start my next project!

A New Obsession

I've taken a little time off painting. 

I wanted to spend as much time with my sons this winter as I could and not be divided by a bewitching paintbrush and an oh so enticing baby sculpt. 
An sweet evil conundrum, I know, but we all have them.

In my 2 week sabbatical I've had many LATE nights. Pure indulgence as I do not enjoy sleeping. Its a waste of time, in my opinion.

It snowed here most of the days. Yes, it was very beautiful. Beautiful and cold and a valid reason to spend most of my time indoors, by the fire, warmed by my mug of coffee and .... crocheting.

Yep, I have learned to crochet. Blame it on a youtube video and a really cute stuffie.  Once I figured it out another addiction was made. I cannot tell you how much joy I have gotten out of crocheting.

My first project was this little man.

Looks nothing like the pattern. He is about 3 times too big. His eyes and mouth are stitched differently and he is missing a pompom on his hat. But I like him. 

Hubby claimed him. 

Next, while browsing on etsy (yes this time off was also the permission to indulge in wasting time on pinterest and etsy) I saw a cute little bunny that I had to have! I have a weakness for bunnies and this one made my knees buckle and the butterflies fly high.
So I thought I would give it a try.

Here is Sackboy Bunny. 

He is made of a simple cotton in a off white color. 

Hubby and I spent the day at a fabric shop looking for buttons to use for eyes. He found lots of cute little bobbins.... I found the eyes. Note to self, hubby is a slamming craft shopping partner. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                          After my little floppy man, I decide to try once more. Something in brown. So I found a vintage wool stashed in my yarn box. Same pattern but Miss Squee was born a bit smaller. 

Completely smitten and in love, I need to try once more. (who am I kidding, I plan to make many more than once more, lol) and friend suggested pink. Who doesnt love a pink bunny. All I had in this sweet color was a skein of baby wool... And then Lil Petal was born... at around 2 am.

So this is my bunny family.
I have no doubt there will be more. What an absolute pleasure its been to make these sweet heirlooms.
I cant wait to see where this new found passion will take me!!!!

Addie by Maisa Said

This is 
Addie is a micro preemie, cloth bodied, silicone. Sculpted by Maisa Said, this lil bean lacks NOTHING! The detail is exquisite, the proportions are spot on and the silicone is as smooth as butter. 
And lets face it, cloth bodied babies are soooo cuddly!

She is 14" long and made of Eco 30. 
Proud as a peacock, I will attest to rooting this lil chicken. Not bad, if I do say so. 

I thoroughly enjoy having a baby this size. So much fun finding clothes and lil toys but doesnt take up too much room and isnt heavy to hold or carry around. 

Lil Addie goes on ebay tonight, Dec 6th 2016 and will run a 5 day auction. This may be the last baby I create of this year.
 Here is the link

I absolutely ADORE these car seat photos. So real! Reminds me of the moment at the hosipital when you get your new baby all bundled up and put into her car seat. That nervous excitement to take your new lil chickie home.
