Shea's Rockin' it!

Guys, check out these pictures sent in by the marvellously talented SHEA!!
Not only has she attempted and totally nailed the Union Jack swatch, but she was also inspired to make her very own TWINKIECHAN PUMPKIN BERET and it looks so FLIPPING ADORABLE SHEA !!
I'm really digging your choice of orange! Much more 'true to life' than my fluro 'Fanta-pants' !
As well as clearly being very talented with a crochet hook, Shea is an author! The combination of 'hooks & books' strikes again guys! Excitingly, Shea reached out to me and asked if I would like to be sent one of her books for free in exchange for an honest review and as it falls under 'historical fiction' and has elements of time travel in it... naturally I typed 'YES" faster than I thought possible !
I'm planning to get to it in the second half of November, so if you would like to check it out and possibly read along with me head on over and check it out!
Thank you for sending in the pictures Shea!! Can't wait to dive into your book !

Another WIP! Because....why not?!

A cousin of mine is expecting her first Bub! So ya'll know what that means!!?! Time to bust out a cute squishy amigurumi !!
The little one isn't actually due till February but I was scrolling through Ravelry (as you do) and this little guy caught my eye .. and well... I had to start right away!


Awwwww!!! Isn't he the cutest!!?
I definitely urge you to head on over to Jess's pattern page! She has some absolutely GORGEOUS amigurumi animals over there AND they're FREE!!
As you can see I've opted for a lovely, light, lilac coloured monkey! Because that is the only colour I had in stash in that sized ply But who wouldn't love a lilac monkey?! It's a cute, neutral colour, so I'm excited to bring him to life!
I haven't had a whole lot of practice with amigurumi, so I'm taking things slow... being sure to read and re-read the pattern...take my time....breathe (as sometimes I get so focused that I tend to forget that part... not ideal...) and hopefully I'll be able to do Mimi justice. No, I haven't lost my marbles completely, that is the name this little one came with
I'm a bit scared about the dreaded 'assembly' stage, but I'll try and worry about that when I get there !

It's not just me right?! Your jaw hit the floor too right ?!
The ridiculously talented SHATAN has just completed her Totallee CAL 2016 piece and it's flipping incredible !!!
For those not in the know, back in 2016 I ran a 'crochet-a-long', in which I accepted 10 or so people, made a pattern of their choice for them and 'essentially' we were to crochet along on our respective patterns together throughout the year. Sadly, the crochet-a-long didn't go so well, HOWEVER! some cracking pieces were completed and this is one of them!
Flipping incredible work Shatan!! Shatan will also be entering this piece in her state fair and I predict a FLURRY of blue ribbons ..AND jumping llamas!!!!
Best of luck and CONGRATULATIONS Shatan on such an impressive and outstanding portrait!!!
