Something Special,Splashy & Splendid for Sweet Cheeks....


Been working on these for a while...

The pillow was from a picture  I found on Pinterest...

No pattern...

Just a picture...

I added my own spin...

And...

I...

Quite...

Like....

The result!!!

They are for Miss V's 1st Birthday...

Can you all believe how time flies???

I hope she likes the pillow...

I added some buttons along the bottom...

I have a bunny pillow in the family room...and it has 6 buttons along the bottom...

She loves playing with the buttons...

And we count to 6....she loves that too!!!

Stares right into your face...wide-eyed...absorbing every word...

Ahhhhh...the young...how wonderous are they???








I had started the afghan a while ago...
It is just one big granny square...
Got the idea from my friend Jennifer over at "Thistlebear" blog...
I finished it off with a nice bobble edging....
After that was done.....I thought...why not a cute OWL pillow to match!
Searched for a pattern...came up with a photo...and that was the one that I liked...
Perhaps she will curl up in the blanket...head on her pillow...and have a nap on the couch....wouldn't that be just perfect?!









My Mom's stuffed toy Cat...

And my proper Mr Rabbit...

Both asked me...

"WHO-WHO-WHO" are you making those for, Linda...

And when I told them...they giggled with delight they were so happy, and said that she would love them!!

HAHAHA!{ am I losing it or what???}



 Some of you may remember that this was the first thing I crocheted for Vivian...1 year ago....and the beautiful blue Hydrangea that bloomed the day she was born...




















Hope you are all having a great day...

Waiting for the rain!!!

Off to the cottage...home early Sunday for a get-together with the Family to celebrate Miss V's birthday...


Have a great weekend...
Stay safe....


                                  Cheers!  :o)

  1. Oh I love those colors!!! And how utterly cute too!!! I must admit the buttons make me nervous but that's just me.

    I may show this to Marion. I bet she wouldn't mind making me one, or two:)

    Thanks for sharing, Linda. Oh how I wish I were better with a needle...

  3. That owl pillow is so so cute! You are very creative to come up with a design for it from a picture. The blanket is so pretty. I'm sure the pillow will be a favourite of Miss Vivian's all her life. I hope you have a wonderful weekend at the cottage and birthday party on Sunday. Exciting!! Hugs, Pam

    1. Crocheting is pretty simple Pamela...perhaps you should take it up!!
      The cottage was "stinkin' hot"...and we survived a huge storm!! More on that later!

  9. Wonderful gifts for Vivian, nothing beats homemade as love is added with every stitch :) She will treasure them for ever.
    Enjoy the cottage. It is windy today (Friday) but still very hot and humid. Perhaps some relief is in sight.

  11. I like your own spin, Linda. I couldn't possibly do that. I'm sure Miss V adores them. Your Mom's stuffed toy Cat and your proper Mr Rabbit know what they're talking about, alright. :)
