Spring is Here – Green is the Theme

Miss Tulip Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

 

I have always loved springtime! The trees are beginning to get new leaves. Flowers are popping up. Bluebonnets, buttercups and Indian paintbrushes are thick along the Texas highways. I drove out to the hill country for work this week, and the bluebonnets are stunning! My designer brain is working on overload with the constant inspiration from nature. Unfortunately, my fingers can only crochet so fast, so many of these ideas will be relegated to my sketch book for a later time. Last year I published Miss Tulip Amigurumi crochet pattern which can be made in any shade of green you like, along with a multitude of colors for the petals. I hope you enjoy making her as much as I did. There’s also a YouTube video to show how to make amigurumi hair.

ducks and chicks

Ducks and chicks are next on everyone’s list of cutest Easter animals. When I was a teenager, I gave my sister a duckling for Easter, but I accidentally stepped on it and killed it. She was inconsolable! I had to drive her to the feed store when they opened the next day to get her another duck. Actually, I think I bought her 2 more. Anyway, I think it really stuck in her mind, because she now has a small farm where she breeds chickens, ducks, and turkeys. That’s why I made a duck potholder for her. Take a look at some adorable Easter bird designs:
