I've been in a Halloween mood lately, so I wanted to make something quick and festive Cheesy

Here is a cute little ghost friend...my favorite part is the sparkly silver yarn lining Cheesy

Jack o' Lantern faces!

This is not Halloween, but it perfectly describes how I feel when I have to get up early LOL

3  White Chocolate Covered Strawberry Amigurumi in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by starfishsea on: July 02, 2010 10:11:01 AM
Ever since I saw a picture of a chocolate covered strawberry ornament (plastic) by Martha Stewart, I've been dying to make one. Well fast forward a year lol and this is what I came up with. I wish I got a picture of the strawberry drizzle though!

I think I'll make a bunch of these around Christmas for ornaments for trees Smiley

My partner RippledWater is so talented! I've tried playing with sculpy....the only thing that turned out was peapods lol! She's an amazing partner, and I'm so happy I got to be spoiled by her  Grin Now I'm intimidated to finish crafting mine LOL

I hope the pictures resized ok, I sometimes have problems with Photobucket.

First off she sent this CUTE box with a starfish and my username painted on it! It was hard to get the exact colors, but they are lighter and more iridescent then in the picture:

When I opened it I discovered a "shelfie" as she called it (that's a great name, I always wondered what to call things like that lol) of an octopus and charms of some of my favorite sea creatures! The charms also come off to be stitch markers since I crochet  Grin The octopus is a mixture of purples/blurple and iridescent colors like the box. It's hard to get a picture of.

And here is where my shelfie lives  Grin

Thank you so much!!

His name is Ethan, and I've been lucky...he's nice and mellow, even if he does stay up all night. He's a night owl just like his parents  Grin It's funny how his hair is so dark....we were both blondes as kids!

It's delicious Cheesy Thank you so much....I love it all!

I made this cloche here (the top one) http://www.crazyhatlady.com and it turns out very pretty and airy, here is a picture of it. It looks a little odd because I messed up a bit, but it fits fine and looks fine on the head  Grin
