In progress - Watson

What's Sherlock Holmes without his Watson??

Halfway through I think. Martin Freeman as John Watson.

Sherlock Sketch

My first attempt at drawing the loveliness that is Benedict Cumberbatch as the new BBC Sherlock Holmes.

Not entirely happy with it, but I still like it and want to share it.

Very busy of late - Plushie Post!

Here are 3 more plushies I have made these last 2 weeks. Very pleased with them all, except for the crappy way the tail turned out on Mitch The Red Panda.

I hope you like!

Malcolm the Giraffe

Enid the Camel

First Crochet Project is Go!

I have now embarked on my first full on crochet project.

I'm using a pattern from Lion Brand Yarn's website (a great place to get patterns for free) called Rudy the Rectangle.

Only done about 6 rows so far of his front so far but I am very pleased to say that it's all straight and even and going well! Hopefully I will finish the two main pieces this week and then tackle the more complicated subject of his legs next week.
