"Knitting and crocheting has been my hobby since childhood. I started making stuffed toys for children hospitals several years ago. It has become a passion, I absolutely love making them. My “Critters” are a nice cuddly, hug-gable, lovable size for the children. And what’s truly amazing is how much pure pleasure a person can receive by creating them."
My patterns are written so that they are easy to follow, and include photos and instructions to help you. If you haven’t tried making a toy using the knitting in the round method, give it a try, your in for a very pleasant surprise! If you have a question contact me at bjfromnv@gmail.com

Kuddly Kirby Quacker Duck

Greetings! Well we had a great trip to Nevada. I had packed some wool socks just in case. But when we arrived I was surprised to find it was 80 degrees! Didn’t need the wool socks that day. So much beautiful sunshine, and so nice to see our old friends. It’s just about a 7 hour drive down, so you don’t feel totally exhausted when you arrive.

I have been here in Idaho long enough to call it home, but a piece of my heart will always be in Nevada. I love the desert, and I do miss it sometimes,  I never will take water for granted, it is a precious commodity. The valley where we lived is hanging on, but the growth has certainly slowed, and the jobs are just as scarce as before.

And now for the latest news, I am proud to announce my 20th pattern. I still find it hard to believe sometimes, but I have had so much fun with these critters. Drum roll please……………..

I am proud to announce Kuddly Kirby Quacker Duck!


The name Kirby is of English origin and means "church town". Kirby measures approximately 8 inches high when sitting. He is sure to bring a smile to whoever sees him. He is a wonderful cuddly size and will make a perfect gift for any child or grown up "kid at heart." He is knit in the round and completely seamless. If you aren't crazy about seaming and have wanted to try a seamless pattern this is a great beginner project. This project is also a great scrap or stash buster.

His hat is attached, so these is no worry of losing it. He truly is a great project for using up that extra yarn. I have some bright pink waiting to use for a duck, that’s what I love about the critters, you can make them absolutely any color you can dream up. woodoutside

Well I hope all is going well for you, this is typical April weather. Get sun every once in a while. Keeps me running if I want to take some outside shots. You know the the drill……………….have fun.
