Happy Easter! Minimal Stitching and Little Crochet Things

I can't believe Easter is tomorrow! Where is the year going and how can I make it slow down? I have just a tiny stitching update. Truly not much. I have been working on a few other things and just basically losing my mind.

So up first, is just a teeny tiny update on Beneath the Sunlit Sky. I can never get the color to show up correctly it seems. 

These overdyed flosses are giving me fits. They knot up SO MUCH. Oh so much. I had to put it down for a while and do something else.

I received a new pattern. I already had Lady Libery by Fanci That and I needed Sam as well. Not that I'll be stitching it any time soon mind you. It's just that I had the feeling that I needed the pair. You know the feeling. LOL.

 My son's girlfriend's birthday is tomorrow and I wanted to crochet her something cute, so I settled on this sweet little amigurumi cake!  You can locate the (paid) pattern HERE

Um, is that the cutest cake ever or what??!! I laughed to myself while putting the face on and those sweet little cheeks. I love it and I hate to give it up, but I think she'll love it too, so that makes it OK!

Next, I have been working on a super cute little lion. Here's what he'll look like in the end. And you can find this adorable pattern HERE!

And here's my progress on him so far.

If I can complete him correctly, I'll feel a real sense of accomplishment on this one! Wish me luck. I gotta say that crocheting in the round really messed up a tendon in my shoulder/collarbone area. Crafting injuries??!!  Is this a thing? Not to mention you can get a little motion sickness doing this as well, if you do it too long at one stretch. Weird!

Have a great holiday if you celebrate and a wonderful weekend regardless. I've got one shot under my belt and the second one is next week, and I'm so happy! I wish you all luck in getting your vaccines and getting back to a little bit of normalcy soon. 

See you soon with more updates! Until then,


  1. Sunlit Sky is so pretty.
    I hate that when treads knot,especially Weeks Dye Works.
    I wonder what causes that. somewhere I was reading that it's the dye process, not sure.
    I know what you mean about needing the pair, lol.
    That Birthday cake is sooooo cute!
    The little Lion will be too.
    Happy Easter!
