And the boss changed our hours! We now work 8 - 4 Mon - Thurs, and 8 - 12 Fri. Not sure why - she's probably using this to be able to justify getting rid of me, but I don't care - I'm off at noon today!

In celebration, let's have some photos!

Herself has been *busy*. You've seen her early stuff.....well, she's improved. A lot.




This is an owl she made for my co-worker. First "mesh". Not too shabby...




Slightly closer view. Kinda messy on the sewing, but still - a good job. But wait....




She did all of these Pokemon things/creatures/whatever while at Granny's. *2* Weeks, folks - *2* weeks. And a couple of days were spent finding patterns and procuring yarn (since she didn't bring her whole stash with her!). Let's do closeups, shall we? (I won't label 'em, since I don't know 1 Pokemon from another.)












The black cat-thingy she came up with herself - she mashed 2 patterns together. Pleased? Me?? :lol:

She did this one Tuesday:




And she's working on another, but it wasn't on the table for photos.

My favorite? The one she did for ME. Here he is, in all his cuteness:




My very own wee dragon! He's adorable....moreso when he, well, look:




Yes, he's a knitter. :snicker: Yes, I did the knitting - and I did it WITH the toothpicks. They're not that much smaller than my sock needles.....and she didn't think I could do it. :lol: He's not knitting right now, though - he's on my computer desk here at the office, guarding the Ibuprofen from me. :lol:

And an obligatory shot of Himself, with one of his balloon creations:




He does the sewing up for Herself, as well as some knitting. He's mostly into Legos and models, though....still, he can knit a mean hat! :lol:



Proud mama much? :lol:

Ho-Lee Crow - THAT is Friggin' IMPRESSIVE!!!
And I have been crocheting for 20 years.
And I don't hand out compliments like lolipops.
Those are FANTASTIC. I have seen pokemon - and those look like they could be sold in a store - they are incredibly good.
The dragon is adorable. really really...I am running out of adjectives.
I am happy you posted this - it really brightened up my day!

Happy to oblige!

Yeah, she's good. And completely self-taught - I do NOT crochet. (I can, but won't - I'm a smart mama. If *I* do it, she won't.) Her gauge is nice and tight, he color choices are really good - the radish-thing? Is too cool - she had Himself do the veins on the leaves, even.

*I* ran out of adjectives, myself!

My son is 9 and he likes pokemon, and when I called him over to the computer to see he said - I want to buy one of those - so if she has any for sale let me know.
