Beatrix the Hedgehog

Beatrix the Hedgehog

I got this pattern out of a book, I can't remember which one. The pattern maker is Amy Gaines. Shes says, "My daughter draws the characters and I turn them into crochet, while my husband helps with our online pattern business." What a way to get inspiration! You can find her on Etsy.

I didn't have any doll eyes so I just embroidered the eyes. I also didn't have any tan colored yarn, so gray it is! He turned out quite adorable.

A Stocking for Link

If you didn't know, we have a dog named Link. That's the name he had from the pound and we liked it, though probably for other reasons than whoever named him had.

This year was our first year in our own place together. We had a 4' Christmas tree and it was adorable. We each have our own stockings at our parents' houses, but Linky didn't have one. So I fixed that this year!

Inspiration from this pin:

I didn't put in quite as much time and dedication as that person did, but for quick fix I love how it looks. I just hand sewed brown ribbon right onto the stocking.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Years!
