I finished three animals over the weekend and they are already available in my shop. My mother actually helped crochet some parts and I did all of the sewing.
The first is a polar bear. I made the eyes bigger for this one and I'm not sure whether I like it more or I prefer the eyes smaller. I made the background blue so that the color of the bear wouldn't blend in with the all white background. I think he's cute. :)
Next I made two more Caterpillars. My mom made most of the circles. I wanted to have more color options available in my shop and since I have some left over yarn, this is the perfect animal to use it on.
I finally started on the Freshstitches Mystery CAL and since clue #3 was released yesterday I am almost done crocheting all the parts. Next week the final clue will be released and it will be the instructions for sewing up the animal. I have to say I have no idea what animal it is. Stacey did a very good job when planning this because none of us doing the CAL are really sure of what it could be. So I am excited to see what it is and for sure it will be finished in time for next Friday.
I have been working on crocheting my mother's crocodile stitch triangle shawl and haven't made time for anything else. I am a little behind on my plan of crocheting 5 rows a day so I need to focus on it more. Hopefully I can make some progress this weekend.
I will be posting the second Merchandise Monday post on Monday showing off all the new items in my shop since the opening. I think that instead of doing one of these post every Monday I am going to do it the first Monday of the month. Unless of course I have a lot to share I might do it every 1st and 3rd Monday. I will be working on that this weekend.
Have a great Weekend!
