Life Without a Stash

I had a lot of free time today, so I spent it the only way that anyone could possibly spend free time. Crafting! And watching Phineas and Ferb on Netflix. So that was fun. :)

Anyway. So here is an updated picture of Gromit. As you can see, I finished the head, making the whites of the eyes out of felt and (what I believe to have been) 10mm eyes. I found them in an unlabled Ziplock, but that sounds about right. I crocheted the body, and also sewed on the arms and legs. I'm not entirely happy with how everything got sewn together, but undoing the stitching is a pain, and it doesn't look horrible, so I left it.

I wish I could finish him before I got home next Thursday, but alas, I cannot. Remember how I said that I sent a load of stuff home with my mom on Tuesday? Well I sent my stash with her (at the advice of a friend. It was legitimate advice; I mean, I should be studying for finals next week) forgetting that the other two colors I need for Gromit, coffee and black Red Heart yarn (the color you see here is buff Red Heart. I don't normally use Red Heart, but the pattern recommended it), were still in the bag. So now my stash and the yarn I need are four hours away from me, Gromit, and my crochet hook. It's sad really, but I guess this is a good excuse for me to study for my finals. Hopefully I do that instead of Netflix...

Until next time!


  1. Oh no! I didn't even think of that when I saw the boxes of yarn!

  2. Gromit is sew cute! Reminds me of one of those stuffed animals you put in traveling pictures. You know, where he appears in the corners of all your pictures~ :) ♥♥♥

  3. I love cute!! What a great way to spend the day.

    I hope you have a wondeful weekend!

    Praying you do well on your finals.....
