This is the pattern I created for Jacob for his Easter Basket. He loves it! It is perfect for a baby that is just starting to eat baby food. You could even put a squeaker in the beak if you wanted to, although that might really distract the baby during mealtime!
I haven’t been able to find very much time lately for crocheting or knitting! Sometimes the business end of self-publishing takes up so much time, there is not always alot of time left over for the fun stuff! I am going to try and make as much time as I can this weekend for crocheting.

>Yeah!

>Yes, I am crocheting again! I have finished the body of the dress of the Ginger Girl, and now I am working on the sleeves. The dress should be finished lickety-split, and then I can start working on the pantaloons. It is so nice out today; everyone thinks I am crazy to be sitting around crocheting, and maybe I am, but I just have to get this done! There are other projects I am itching to be working on. I want to finish up the zen/suede bag, and start the poncho; (can’t talk about who it is for, just in case she reads this! lol). But, as always, I must be a good little girl, and finish what needs to be done first, and then I can play! On that note, back to the Gingers!
