Sandy Duner, Egbert and Gratitude!



     This is Sandy Duner, he is a shape-shifting critter from the White Sands of New Mexico.  He held his pose briefly and then disappeared again, into a drift of sand. 

     Free form crochet is such fun.  Sandy is a one of a kind, and even if I wanted to make another one, I wouldn't be able to.  He measures about 11" tall, and is soft and cuddly.



    This little free form crocheted character is an Eggasauers.  I affectionately call him Egbert.  He is a good father in that he carries his youngsters around on his back, never complains, and waits with joyfull anticipation at the little ones hatching.  Egbert is about 7" long and stands about 5" tall. 

    This is my 250th blog post.  I am hoping to continue to share my Art Adventures.  I can't believe I had this much to share, really.  I enjoy "making" toys and painting pictures, and writing little nonsense stories. 

    I am grateful that you have looked in from time to time, and I hope that I have brought a little "joy" into your day.  

     Happy Thanksgiving!   I am truly grateful!!      Audrey   <3

Rocky the Rock-Wheelin' Dog



     This little guy is a "rock-wheeler" dog.  He loves going fast, anywhere.  Rocky measures about 8 1/2"  and weighs a few ounces.  I made him from some odds and ends of yarn I picked up at yard sales. 


   Whoa, little fella', easy on the furniture!!    He makes a rather odd "varoom" sound, as he tears across the studio chair.   

    May your wheels stay between the lines this new week!   Smile On!      Audrey

Clara the Crocheted Chicken



     She insists on staying in the house today.  Moving her nest to the top step, she has a clear view of the snow storm we have brewing outside.



     Oh, dear!  I have really ruffled her feathers now.   I asked sweetly if she would mind going back to the barn, but she refused to budge.   Maybe when the storm passes? 

      Clara is a crocheted chicken.  I made her to keep the other chicken company in the barn.  They don't seem to get along very well.  Clara is the bigger of the two, so she rules the roost.  

      Keep warm my dear family and friends!!            Audrey  <3

Ariel View in Crochet


        High in the sky, on a clear morning a WW2 plane flies over the English landscape.  The fields create a quilt like pattern, as the trees line the edge of a clear blue lake.  A river runs along the bottom edge.

       This is a crocheted piece I made.  It measures about 31" x 22" at the widest points.  The airplane is a four engine type that I embroidered on to the surface.


      Here is a close up of the plane.  This type of crochet is a narrative free-form.  If you have ever had the opportunity to fly you may have witnessed a really beautiful sight as you looked out the window.

      This world is so exquisite.  This mornings sunrise for example....wow, such a lovely varied shade of pinks and lavenders!

      Hope your week is splendid!        Smile On!    Audrey
