Back again. I know feast or famine, right? Two posts in one day. If you didn't see my other one about the crochet-a-long I'm trying you can check it out here. This one is about a crochet project as well. Sorry, no cards...yet.
Back when I found the Happypotomus pattern from HeidiBears, I also saw a pattern for Aloysius. He is an owlet. A pretty dang cute owlet. I tried reallllllly hard to resist buying the pattern. But(hangs head)...I caved. Every time I thought about it, I'd hear it calling to me...you know you want to download me and make me. Not in a creepy way, mind you. Okay. What really struck me was the wings on the doll. I thought they were so neat looking. So, anyway, I had a certain someone who came to my mind when I looked at the pattern, too. I've crocheted it, boxed it up and sent him to his new home, where I'm sure he is going to be very happy.
I've developed a pretty neat friendship with a gal named Kay over the past couple of years. I've talked about her before on this blog. If you haven't been to her blog, My Joyful Moments, you should seriously take a peek. Oh and plan to stay a bit as you meander around and take in all the eye candy. This gal has got some serious card making talent. She is also a fabulous polymer clay designer as well. She has an Etsy shop where she sells the clay ornaments that she makes. But you know what? They sell out in minutes. That's how fantastic her ornaments are. I mean, I don't even get to see them posted, they are gone before I can get to the shop. As I said, we've developed a pretty special (to me) friendship and she is the one who immediately came to mind when I saw Aloysius. I'm not sure why, as I have other friends who like owls too, but I felt a strong urge to create him for her and so I did. He's in his new home now and so I felt like I could share.
The penguin part comes in because he sort of also looks like a penguin. It could be because I didn't stuff him all that well. Oh well. Owlet, penguin, I think he's cute either way. :)
Enough talk....here he is!
I really liked the look of the wings as a solid color, but what really drew me in was the scallop on the wings. Gah! So darn sweet!
Now I ask you, could you have resisted this face?
So, now you see I've been a little busy creating. But I couldn't really share until it was all done.
Thanks ever so much for stopping by.
Hope you have a great week!
PS Kay, I hope I didn't embarrass you. I'm just get so happy when I see what you create and I want to share it with others.
