Tatting and Head stuffing for WIPW

For no particular reason, I'm showing tatting pictures first today. The row I was working on is done, and I'm working on the next one (Clover doily by Eileen Stafford).  This is the row that nearly broke my will when I made the first doily, so I'm drinking a lot of coffee and resolutely tatting one motif at a time.



The little lady has been getting all the amigurumi goodies lately, so I decided to start something for the big guy.  Here's what I have so far.  It's one of the characters (not sure which character yet) from 'Creepy Cute Crochet' by Christen Haden.


The big guy is almost 8 and is going through the 'gruesome little boy' phase.  I half suspect he would like a decapitated head more than a finished product.

Like last week, I'm linking up to Tami's Ami's WIPW.  There are lots of lovely things there, so please visit.


I actually finished last week's WIP, just not in time for FO Friday.  Here's the finished neck nuzzler.


 The little lady loves it so much she has actually worn it around her neck a few times.  This is a tropical country.  You sweat buckets in anything heavier than t-shirt cotton.  Wearing a scratchy wool/acrylic thing around your neck is a true sign of love.

  2. Hi Margaret,

    Looking at the little lady and her neck nuzzler makes me feel hot too, but when it comes to points of fashion, there's just no arguing with her.
