Ami-Along 2018

AmiAlong2018Title

It’s that time of year again! This will be the the 4th annual summer ami-along and I am one of the participating designers this year. If you are new to the ami-along, basically it is a crochet and knitting event in which everyone who joins in makes amigurumi from the participating designers during the summer. This year there are 18 different designers taking part – so I am sure you will find something to make!

It all takes place on ravelry, so join the group, check out the patterns you can use by browsing the group’s pattern bundle, and get ready! One of the best parts? All the patterns, from all designers, will be on sale (25% off) starting before the event (June 25-July 8), so you have time to prepare. PLUS there are prizes. I will be giving away one of my handmade project bags.

I plan to make some little foods by Alyssa of Monster’s Toy Box (learn more about her in this interview!). I will start with her healthy snacks, and then move on to the garden (veggie) snacks. If I have time I will also make her munchie monster to eat them all! I just love these patterns. I have made some of them before for my neice and nephew (see photos below), but this time they will be for my son!

2016 Donations from Bill the Pineapple

2016 Bill the Pineapple amigurumi donation

Thank you to everyone who purchased a Bill the Pineapple pattern this year – I was able to donate over $1330 to the charity Support Education Togo. That is amazing! So many children in Togo, Africa will benefit from your support.

Want to learn more about the charity? Visit SupportEducationTogo.org and learn how your money is going towards building schools so more children have the opportunity to be educated in a safe environment. My father started the charity himself, so I know it is one that can be trusted and ALL the money donated goes to help the students in Togo.

Happy new year!

Until next time,

Meet Tod and Dot – a pair of bears!

new pattern! titleI would like to introduce to you my latest pattern release: Tod and Dot the bears! Named by my husband, Tod is the tall one and Dot is the round one.

Tod and Dot the bears amigurumi pattern

I started off making Tod (who was then nameless), but then I felt he needed a little tubby friend. My hubby then came up with the names Tod and Dot and I knew right away that it was the perfect fit.

I will admit, these two have been sitting on my desk for some time now because life has made their release a little more delayed than usual, but they have been keeping us company, watching our every move. Every once in a while my husband or I will randomly say “Hello Tod and Dot!” when we notice them staring. They make us smile!

Learn all about the pattern on the Tod and Dot pattern page. Can’t wait to see all the bears pop up!
