♥ Sunny Side up ♥

I was eating toast and eggs, when a light went of : I got it, a little sunny side up egg Amigurumi!!! :D I thought would be the perfect friend for my toast. They hit it off like peanut butter and jelly like 2 pea’s and a pod. Hehe you get the idea ;) This is one of my Amigurumi patterns I will be sharing with you guys. I have a few more. Its funny how most of my Amigurumi are food related. The toast you see pictured is not my design. I modified it, which you can see on my project page on Ravelry with the details. If you like the pattern for the toasty, check out;

Hello my Fiber friends! :D I am excited and exhausted while telling my self to take pictures of this new lace scarf . I could put the pictures along with the free pattern. It was exciting cause I got a chance to play in the snow (see how cozy my knits were) before conquering the truck load of snow off the drive way. Instead of rewarding myself with a nice cup of hot chocolate, I grabbed a ice cream cone. I know, I know but no matter how much you tell me this is crazy. I love my ice cream. I mean don’t get me wrong, I will sit down with a nice hot cup of coco, but there is those days I grab a bowl (yes not cup) of ice cream. The exhausting part, besides shoveling snow. Is the last minute Christmas shopping and Gift knitting. Phew!!! I am almost finished. I hope you like the pattern! I will be posting more (ok tons more) patterns in the future. So, keep on checking. I will be having crochet, knit and felt projects. I am excited to say I have a Amigurumi waiting to meet you guys. I will also post the pattern soon. ^__^ If you have any questions about this pattern please feel free to email me and if your on Ravelry check me out: fiber-fashionista I want to see your finished projects so, send me your user name on Ravelry, if not Ravelry send a finished picture. I would love to see how yours turned out.
