Finally Finished!

I finally finished the octopus that I have been working on the past day and half! I crocheted non-stop from 1PM-11:30PM last night. My fingers were hurting! She took a looot longer than I expected but she turned out cute. Took many tries to sew the legs on. I just wasn't happy with the way they looked... too sloppy. They aren't perfect still but they look a lot better! I think she turned out cute. She was made as a present for a baby girl. I hope they like her!


Today I enjoyed a nice lunch with a friend at one of my favorite places in town. It was nice talking about craft-y things to someone other than my husband!

When I came home from lunch there were 3 squirrels playing around the tree right outside my window. I wish I could keep one! They are so cute!
