This year for christmas I made DH a giant squid (he loves squids and all things with tenticles) sorry for the crummy photo, but at least I got one up.  I'm excited since this is my first completed project I've posted I think.  I've been a lurker adn occasional poster for a couple years now. 

That is my cat nuzz sitting in the picture with the giant squid which dh named Mr. None... cna't realy rememeber why.  I originally made this so DH could take it with him when he goes to key west for work for a month, but it ended up being too big so he asked me to make a mini Mr. None (he leaves in just over a week and this was my first ever attempt at a stuffed animal) he's got some flaws but he's a great 50/50 piece. Mr. None is just under 5 feet tall and despite all of his flaws very awesome   Grin  he only took about 5 hours to make, he's made from white fleece and the underside of his tenticles is a very cool fabric from Joann's.  It's green flannel that has a white bubble looking pattern that really looks like tenticles.  I'll be sure to post pictures of the mini as soon as I finish him.  Thanks for looking, c&c welcome

Whoah! He is huge but awesome! What a great first posted project. How will you top it?

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.
