Happy Lunar New Year!

Happy Lunar New Year!

Another year, another zodiac animal! As you can see, it’s going to be the Year of the Horse!! if you’re a horse, you are turning 0, 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84, 96, or 108! ¬†ūüôā ¬†I can’t think of anyone I know that has this sign… “Horse” people are supposedly pleasant, and easy-going. ¬†They’re extroverts and are full of good humor-he or she is usually the life of the party! ¬†They are also supposed to be very frank and direct, almost to the point of tactlessness. ¬†Does this fit the personality traits of any of your “Horse” friends?

Since returning from my holiday overseas trip, ¬† life has quickly gone back to the usual routine. ¬†Getting up, going through the chaotic ¬†morning ritual of packing the kids off to school, running errands, thinking of and preparing dinner… (WHY do people have to eat dinner every night? It would be so much easier if we just ate less often…like once a week!) ¬†I’ve been adding extra crochet time into the mix in preparation for the upcoming Zoomigurumi 3 book! ¬†Amigurumipatterns.net is once again compiling 15 new designs for the new edition and it’s set to be released in the Spring of 2014, which is just around the corner! ¬†Follow ¬†the Amigurumipatterns.net ¬†Facebook page for more updates and other links/news about super cute amigurumi patterns!

The Zoomigurumi books have been wildly popular and are currently on Amazon.com for purchase.   Perhaps they will be available on the shelves here in the US one day.  That would be so awesome!  I feel extremely honored to be included once again!!  I just recently packed off my 2 contributions, Cuddles the Sheep and Clementine Cow.

Bye bye, animals!

They’re off the Belgium and will be used to promote the book. ¬†I had to find the smallest box to fit Cuddles, which is a pretty huge amigurumi!! I tried warning everybody of her size but I don’t think you can really appreciate how big she really is unless you see her in relation to a person. ¬†So let me add a picture of my son holding this doll. ¬†He’s shy, so you can’t see his face. ūüôā

So huggable!

So huggable!

See how cuddly and soft she looks? ¬†Too bad I don’t have any daughters. ¬†None of my boys are the least bit interested in playing with my crocheted animals. ¬†I did make a few Angry Birds, which they threw around for a short while, but that fad faded pretty fast for them.

Till next time, XOXO and happy crocheting!
