Hope you're all enjoying your break from the ordinary!

Hi everyone, I hope you've all had a lovely Christmas (if you celebrate it, that is).

Ours was great, and we're spending Boxing Day playing Wii (Mr Bump), learning chess (Wren, with Mr Blogs) and stuffing our faces (me especially).
Santa was very good to us all this year. ;)

I've been kinda AWOL for the last couple of weeks as we prepared for Christmas. Luckily, though, I had some scheduled posts to keep you all entertained.
- That's why I haven't answered comments for a while, I haven't been snobbing you all.

For January I've got the kids home on school holidays, and I don't expect to get near the computer except to check my email every now and then.

I hope you'll use the time to actually make some amigurumi rather than just drooling over the patterns I've linked to on here. ;)

When I get back, I'll be wanting to know what you've been up to while I've been Captaining this madhouse.

Please, please, please... Send me your pics of your amigurumi creations to keep me sane until February!

1 hour Owlets

Adorable little creatures, aren't they?

I especially like the oversized dolls's eyes.

ps ~ I've just realised that this "pattern" isn't actually a pattern.
It's more of a guide for more experienced crocheters to follow.
Because of that, I've upgraded to level of difficulty to "high".

My apologies, Jane :)
