Quack Quack - Cute and Cuddly

I love crocheting cute toys. This little ducky was one of many on my list of things to create. I seem to have a very long list but not a lot of time. Take note that this ducky is all crocheted except for the ribbon. No worries of parts coming off like some toys that are currently in the news. The bow is easy to remove, just untie and little ducky is ready to play with smaller kids.

Hmm, I wish the picture was a little bright. Need to work on my photography a little more. Another task to add to my to-do list. I am currently working on more items to add to my blog. I am hoping to have these up for you to view in the next few days. Will it be crochet? Knitting? Embroidery? Hmmm, stay tuned for the next adventure of Crystal Creates.

Yummy Crocheted Tart/Pastries

Well, one of my loves is baking and another is crocheting. Hmmm, what can one do to combine the two? Well, since it is too hot to bake today, I whipped up a batch of crocheted tarts. I had so much fun making these and they look oh so yummy. I may have to get in there and really bake up a batch. NOT!!!
So, what do I do with these crocheted yummies? Well, they are still on the cake plate and add a splash of color and eye candy. Friends have said these actually make them hungry just looking at them. I have to agree. My husband even likes them. I made up another chocolate one just to use as a pincushion. It brings a little whimsy to my craft room and sewing table.

The best thing about these crocheted tarts, there are no calories and you can have all you want without the guilt. What more can a girl ask for? Well, diamonds would be nice.

These can be found on my website under pincushions . Drop by and check them out. If you would like to make your own, the pattern can be found in my esty shop.

Well, I am off to the kitchen, errr, craft-room, to whip up another batch of crocheted goodies. Stay tuned to Crystal Creates.
