story first. my nine year old sister loves have exotic pets. as a back to school present my mom bought her a baby snake. she loved it and toted its small cage with her all over the house. she bragged about it to everyone. i haven't lived with my mom since my senior year in high school. the other day i went to visit her and noticed that she didn't have her snake at her side. when i asked her about it she broke into tear and couldn't speak. i turned to my other younger sister (i have a big family) and she told me that our brother had lost it. she was heart broken and i hated to see her so sad, but there was nothing i could do. then it hit me while i was working on a crocheting project....BAM!!! i could crochet here a snake...it wouldn't replace her long lost friend, but it would hopefully provide some comfort. anyway here it is.
the completed project
the close up of the stitches (sc)
and of course the face...i had no black beads that were small enough so i used some of my magnet beads
here is my little sister with her snake
and another just for fun
she loves it and wouldn't stop hugging me after i gave it to her....sometimes i love being a big sister
thanks for looking c&c welcome and much appreciated.
