Scrumbling a baby blanket

I am 6 months pregnant with a baby girl, so I am making her a blanket. I decided to do it in small pieces and crochet them together. I have seen other people do scrumbles and have always wanted to try it. It's pretty fun just to do free form instead of following a pattern. Once I make up a square of tiny pieces, I'll do a border around the edge to finish it off. I put more pictures up on my blog if you'd like to check it out :)

New Hoodie for my God son

Okay here is the hoodie I made my god son. I always make his sisters things and the last time I came over to thier house he put his hand to his chest and said, "Where's mine?, where's Bernies?" so I broke down and made this for him. It's a size 3T and I got the pattern from under the pattern section called "Nordic River Hoodie". That is the front of the hoodie.
Here is the back of the hoodie.
Here is the little man happily in his hoodie. He was so excited when I said I had soemthing for him and not his sister's.
Here he is with his hands in his pockets.
And finally here he is with the hood down showing off his cute curls. I love his curls, I told his mom not to get his curls cut anymore. I used for the hoodie a I hook, and Red Heart Camo and Black and once again it s a size 3T.

the silk amigurumi bunny! I'm almost done with a gold color silk bunny, and an orchid cashmir bunny....

Silk amigurumi!

Goldie is a friendly little kitty hawk.
She likes to travel and see new things and meet new people and have her photo taken with them.

Goldie is 4 in tall with a 3 in wingspan!
She is crochet from silk, so probably NOT appropriate for small children.
She has safety eyes, and is filled with polyfill and LOVE.

She has been shown in the Art Show at Capricon '08!

Goldie is eagerly awaiting adoption in my shop.
