the peas in a pod i made for myself, with my own made up pattern based on all the cute ones i was seeing on etsy and such. the only pea-esque color i could find at the time was a bamboo yarn, which is very nice but thinner than the acrylic i am used to, hence the stuffing. it's not as noticeable in real life though. the pod was a little tricky, but that's how the baby was made!

the turtle i made for a friend. again, made up the pattern as i went, thats why he's not the best, but i thought he was cute. plus i had the yarns on hand, so free!

and his underside

the flower pot i made for my grandma who was very ill at the time and actually just passed away friday night. i thought the idea of crocheted flowers that need no watering and never die would be nice for her. it was funny, when i made it, again using yarns on hand, i wondered what on earth kind of plant would have these color flowers on it together. when i gave it to her i realized she has the exact same plant in a hanging basket.  oh yeah the pattern is from the lion brand website. the pot came out wonky so i had to change that part. and i had to make extra flowers and leaves. that was fun, attaching all those tiny pieces (sarcasm). definitely the most complicated ami i have done, but worth it as my grandma taught me how to work with my hands and i know she loved it.
oh, and it's the fisrt crocheted item i have made in a while without a face on it. it was considered, but i decided against it.

this is more true in color:
hairy, i know.

thanks for looking/reading, i know it's a long post. comments welcome!

i would go out tonight but i haven't got a stitch to wear

Sorry about your grandma.
I like the flowerbasket you made her. It looks cosy!
