Lion Brand's Pablo Panda

If you've been following me for a while, you may have heard my mantra, "Simple is best." I adore patterns that express so much with a simplistic design. (Just look at my Moon Buns!) So while browsing the free patterns on Lion Brand Yarn's website, for today's free pattern, I fell in love with this little guy. He's so roly-poly with a clean, simple design.

I think having a basket full of Pablo Pandas would be such a delight. Maybe changing a few to shades of browns for a basket of bears?

For this pattern, you will need to sign up (for free) to the Lion Brand website. After that, you will have access to all of the company's free patterns. Here's the direct link to Pablo Panda!

Happy Crocheting!

This is little Tsuki, the Moon's Creations mascot, with a moon charm and an easy to attach strap for zippers, cell phones or whatever you can think of.

Just had to add this photo too. It looks like she's trying to pull the bag.

Cutest Little Owl

Today's featured free pattern is from the Coats and Clark company.
I love little owls, but many of the patterns I've seen aren't quite what I'm looking for until I found this cutie. It's got the sweetest round head and with a little change of colors would be an absolutely darling penguin.

When looking for patterns, it helps to go a little color blind. By changing the colors mentally of the photos, you might discover the pattern you've been overlooking because of the neon colored yarn used by the pattern writer is the perfect pattern for your muted brown yarn.

If you have trouble overlooking the color, one tip is to copy the image and change it to greyscale in a photo editing program.

Ghost Children Moon Buns

This commission was completed a long time ago, but now that they are headed to their new home I thought it would be alright to post them.

These are Moon Bun versions of the ghost children from the movie Coraline. I'm very happy with how they turned out.

These are links to photos of how the characters originally look in the movie:

Kermit at University of Maryland, College Park

In a previous post, I mentioned being an alumni of the University of Maryland, College Park. I'm originally from Maryland, so it wasn't much of a leap to commute to the University. My major in case you were wondering is English, Creative Writing.
The University's mascot is a Diamondback Terrapin turtle. This particular ad campaign came out while I was attending. The little turtle trying to push the ball made me laugh so hard I had to share.

Many of you were interested in seeing the Kermit the Frog and Jim Henson statue at the campus. The University of Maryland Campus is very lovely and I highly encourage you to take a visit, especially in the off season. To get to the statue, take Rte 1 to the Main Entrance at Campus Drive, go "straight" through the circle, and Kermit will be sitting outside of the Student Union on your right hand side.

Carrie Au's Ewey the Lamb

I just stumbled across this little lamb last night and what a cute little pattern. By working the face from the nose rather than the crown of the head, the lamb has a cute swirly nose and check out those ears! I'd love to make a herd of them out of a fuzzy wool-like yarn.

Things that make me smile

I adore the Muppets. Jim Henson is one of my heroes. As a graduate of the University of Maryland, I was thrilled when they installed a bench honoring Jim Henson and Kermit the Frog.
Here are a few videos that I love. Enjoy!

I wish I could add more, but there are just too many to choose from. Well, maybe one more.

Thank you Jim Henson for inspiring me to dream always.

Photos from my life

Working on Moon's Creations, often takes over my life. When I'm trying to enjoy some time off, I get antsy, feeling like I'm wasting my time and should get back to work. The other day, I noticed I don't use my camera unless I'm taking photos of Moon Buns, so I decided to snap a few photos.

This photo doesn't even begin to capture the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

This is my girl, Emma. She's a corgi/cattle dog mix..

I love gardening.

I hope you enjoyed a little glimpse of my life. Maybe I'll take a few more photos from my life, if I can only get away from those task master bunnies. lol!

NerdyCrochetGal's Alas Poor Yorick

I love this pattern!
It's a pattern for a skull and if there's anything I love more than bunnies, it's skulls.
NerdyCrochetGal really out did herself with the shaping of this piece.
Alas Poor Yorick is definitely on my "to make" list, that is if I can ever find my way out of the bunny mines.

For this wonderful pattern, please click here!

Things that make me smile

From the Metro.
"Mick Madden, a metal worker from Huddersfield, has invented a goldfish walker - so he can take his pets Malcolm and Ethel out for a stroll."

Look at that little goldfish! It's so excited about the walk, I can tell by the glint in its eye.

I've recently received one of the sweetest treasures from repeat customer, Jibby and Juna. She sent me a link to her wonderful blog, where she recounts the adventures her Moon Buns are having with her children. I particularly love her son's drawing.
