Possibly, just possibly...

This is the cutest thing I've ever made...

He (or she, depending on what my friend decides he/she is) will be a lion soon. I just have the other arm, 2 legs and a tail to make. Hubby's best friend's birthday is coming up, and I remembered how much she loved the boy's monkeys. She loves earthy tones, which suites the lion perfectly. I think eventually, I'd like to make a blanket from this yarn for her and her girlfriend for Christmas. The colors are so pretty. It's TLC Essentials High Plains. Pretty browns, tans, beiges and oranges. The pattern is from here, and the eyes (which I'm totally in love with) are from here. LOVE the pattern, it was very easy to follow, and I liked that I didn't have to sew the head to the body, it's crocheted all in one piece.

Here's his/her close-up :)

I also want to thank Jenn and Jacqui for the thoughtful "Candle of Blessing" they sent my way when granny was in the hospital. It was so good to know that I was in their thoughts and prayers. Thanks to all of you that left kind comments, again. It really did mean a lot. You can read about granny's progress on my momma's blog, over here.

And, my momma tagged me but I still haven't figured out what to do, so it'll wait until next time. Also, the granny squares from the last post are still being made, I'll give you an update on that soon, too.

Oh, that is adorable! I love the colors! My son (he's 5 now) was crazy about lions when he was a baby. I felt like a bad mom when I put his "chewy paw lion" (it was a stuffed lion with teething paws) in the dryer, and one of the paws melted, and another stuffed lion of his that went in the dryer ended up with its furry mane all fuzzy. I learned my lesson about putting stuffed toys in the dryer, LOL!
