I'd like you to meet Maybellene the Cow, isn't she a cutie? She's the plushie I was working on for the Fresh Stitches June CAL. One thing I like best about making toys is that you have a sweet little friend when you're done. This was a very fun and well-explained pattern and great for an almost beginner toy crocheter like me. I can hardly wait to make another Fresh Stitches pattern now, I'm thinking it will be the Raccoon from Stacey's Woodland Animals Craftsy course. I picked up all the supplies I need at Michael's the other day so I'm all ready to get started.
In some knitting news, I'm on the boarder on Mom's Stripe Study Shawl right now. I think I'm at 2 1/2" and it needs to be a total of 4" before I can bind off, so it's getting close. If I dedicate some time to it this weekend I should be able to get it done.
These two things are what I have been working on mostly this week. I really hope to get Mom's shawl done so that I can start next week fresh and maybe cast on for something new. We will see how it goes.
