"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

Memorial Day Weekend

I hope you all have a safe week-end. The weather here in Idaho is just beautiful. I think I have made my final change to Lil Arfin Annie, I’m not dreaming about it and I’m beginning to think that’s a miracle. Anyway, it is done. I am hoping it will be a popular addition to my other patterns.

I just wanted to drop in and say “HOWDY” have fun……………

What’s up with you?

Another beautiful day in the neighborhood. Some of the most beautiful clouds going on outside. This has been the craziest spring weather. From wind and rain in the morning to to sunny and hot in the afternoon! But it is what it is. One of my husbands favorite sayings………………

Had a lovely walk with Stella this morning…………and would you believe I didn’t get barked at once? Now that’s a red letter day. While I was up on the ditch road I saw a mother duck and at least 10 baby ducklings swimming in the canal. So as she was trying to herd them ahead of us, Stella and I put it in high gear and passed them, then Mama decided to turn them around and head the other way. I would have liked to stop and admire them, but Mom was not in the mood! lol

Well I finally finished another pattern yesterday. And it’s hard to believe but it’s been a couple of years since I have done one. I was given the name first and then I made the pattern. Her name is:

LIl Arfin Annie


I took a gazillion pictures, but when I was trying to put them up on Ravelry I could not get them to show all of her, just parts, like the picture was too big? Anyway I came up with this shot and I think it works pretty well? I have been looking at a couple of my other patterns and I think they could use a little updating? Sounds good?

Anyway, just wanted to drop in and show you “Annie”. I hope you are having a great day.
