Strawberry or Red Pepper?

Last Friday, I made my first attempt at amigurumi -  a strawberry. The strawberry was supposed to be small and delicate, with beads sewn in for seeds; however, because of the yarn gauge (I used Red Heart) it turned out to be huge!
My stepson Michael suggested it could pass for a red pepper. Now that look at it, I see his point.

 Either way, right now it is being used both as a decoration and a stress ball.

Cross-stitching wise, I am currently working on three projects in rotation: Hogwarts Crest, Victorian House, and a Sampler that was started ages and ages ago.
My verse design " As For Me and My House" went to my niece's on Easter and had a huge success. So, I could say, the first design went well!
Have a wonderful week!

  2. Hi Dan,
    Thank you for a kind comment! I am starting to feel it's not my best work, but with practice - who knows - I may be able to crochet toys for my girls!
    Hope you and your family are doing well.


Thank you for leaving a word! I really appreciate your comments.
