Robins and an award and a new pattern preview

Now that the little robins have been received by their new owners, I can at last blog about them :)

I made them using this easy pattern from ravelry: 

Except that I made the wings differently. But then I found the wings were a bit too big and bulky, so you might be better sticking to the designer's original wing pattern too. I sewed on the beak instead of gluing it, and also sewed on some lovely goggly eyes.

If you want to get to the pattern, you'll need to have an account on Ravelry. And I oh so much advise anyone who is a crochet fiend like me to do so!  There are zillions of patterns, including more than 24,000 free crochet patterns.  Yes, over TWENTY-FOUR THOUSAND. That's a lot of free patterns. Go on over there and join! It's free and really well worth the time it takes to create your account.

I also want to say a huge thank you to Barbina at Little Things Made with Love who has awarded me the Liebster Blog award! Thank you so much Barbina, it's my first ever award and I am so happy to receive it!

The award goes to lovely blogs with less than 200 followers, the rules are:
1Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2Reveal your top 5 picks for the award and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3Post the award on your blog.

5And, best of all – have fun and spread the Karma.

I would therefore like to pass the award on to the following bloggers:

Kristin from Brysselpyssel

Wishing you all great fun in your future blogging! 

One last thing before I go... I've been very busy the last few days preparing a new pattern to share with you all. I'm not quite ready to post it yet, but here's a little preview.  

Be back soon!

  4. Oh, That's me! Thank you so much. I've been on a blogging break for a bit but I'm back! Sort of.

    The robins are adorable. I've just started crocheting and I'm not good enough to attempt a pattern yet, but I'm bookmarking this one and will give it a try once I'm confident enough.

    Thank you...Madison xxx
