"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

Bright Sun Shiny Day!

How you doing? Starting to feel like spring around here. A beautiful day in Idaho. Been staying up late working on the critters, and it makes me feel so dam good. I just love making them. And the very best and worst of it…………………..is shipping them off to the kids.

Crazy old lady……….I get attached to them…….some have the sweetest faces and I try to pour love into every stitch. I always remember how it felt to be sick as a child…………..but to be a sick child in a hospital……………? Anyway, it’s my greatest hope that they bring a smile and some love and a little security to these children.more feb babes

I try to keep a model of my patterns, so they are handy for referral. I still look forward to having them put into a book. Please note the critter on the front bench left………….interesting dude…. still working on that guy. He has been waiting for a long time to get down the road. I have a couple more in my chair that I need to finish up the pattern. I shipped off 10 critters today…………..not all pictured.

I was just so glad we got some sunshine today. So I could take some pictures and pick any little pieces of polyester fill off of them. I used to take pictures of each and everyone and put them in albums. But I have made so many now, that I would have books of them. It’s just about giving back…………..whatever you can do in this world. It’s your call. Anyway………………have a great day…………………and have fun………….:0
