Oh, and here's an update on the mantel, Linda saw some deer at a store downtown and I think they really helped. Thanks!

I made my first attempt at amigurumi, the Japanese craft of making small animals out of crochet. I made a skunk for Jairus' Birthday. He's cute-ish, but not nearly as cute as the pictures in the pattern. I'm not sure if I'll try again. It wasn't hard, really... I think I just need more practice with embroidery in order to make the face better. I also made Anna a skirt out of an old sweatshirt that was in the goodwill pile, that was fun and it's pretty cute. I don't know if it looks cute here in the picture, maybe I'll get one of her in it, that'll make anything cute. I'm working on another star blanket. I found a simpler explanation of the pattern on Craftster, and this one is looking lots better than the first one.
