A half-dozen rainbow chicks in matching eggshells. These baby chicks are busting out of their shells to make the world that much cuter. Easter may have come and gone, but summer is still bright enough to take on this cheery project. This pattern is created by a fellow crafter and is posted on her blog at RedlFlame "Baby Chicks in Eggshell."

My brother is expecting his first little baby this year and she is also the first grandchild in the family. Patty is long gone now and Dad is going to need a new Patty for him and his grand-daughter to play with. I searched everywhere and I could not find a puppet pattern like Patty. Not free, not for sale, not even decades old. I created Patty completely from memory with the crochet skills I have learned. And here she is! She turned out amazingly wonderful! I love her and I hope my new little niece will enjoy my Dad playing with her as much as I did. Happy Father's Day!
♥ Thanks to my darling husband for modeling my Pattycake Doll. ♥

May/June 2010 issue of Crochet Today. I grabbed the pattern from the link last week as a free download, but I see now that they are no longer offering it as such. You can still buy the issue online from their website.

How messy is your craft area? I just can't seem to keep mine neat. I have nice storage in my closet, but I can't see what I've got when it's in there, so it usually ends up all over my floor! I also like to sit and crochet at my computer which leaves my desk completely covered in yarn. I have to dig and push stuff away to get to my keyboard. I went shopping determined to find something to solve my problem. What a find! These handy baskets are absolutely perfect for what I need. It keeps all of my loose yarn,completed projects, partial pieces, tools, and accessories all together and controlled leaving my desk and table tops mess-free. I even have one that holds my hooks, needle and marker, a bit of stuffing, and my current color so I can pick it up and move it wherever I need it. I picked up these baskets at my local Wal-Mart at $1.50 for a set of 2. That's a great price for these handy baskets!

A tiny little doll with a green dress, blond hair, and blue eyes. I'm starting to embroider the eyes on animals and dolls since these are going to go in Nana's Toy Box. The pattern for this cutie is from K and J Dolls "Little Nurse."

I love this sack-shaped rabbit with his classic and plain look. I used ribbon around his neck instead of the suggested strand of yarn and worked the rounds continuously like amigurumi without joining. This pattern is found at Bernat "Toy Bunnies."
