Sand Kirby On The Beach

Mr. Pea and I popped to the beach last week, as it was such a hot day we figured we should make the most of the nice weather while it's here, luckily we live near a few seaside towns.
We opted for Walton, it's slightly further away but quieter during term time.

The part of beach we went on was pretty good for sand castle building, still being damp from the tide coming in earlier. We took advantage of the awesome sand and made a sand Kirby, I made the body and stuck his little arms on, Mr. Pea sorted out the feet and his face.

I popped a Crafty Geeks business card in his hand and we left him there, went we went past back to the car a couple of hours later the tide had come in and washed him away but we have our photos to remember him by.

Max Amigurumi At Last

I can't believe I haven't posted about Mr. Pea's other amigurumi I made him for his birthday (which was in the middle of June, oops!)
I made him an amigurumi of Max the rabbity thing originally from the comic Sam and Max: Freelance Police. We played the new episodes on PS3 together last summer and went retro Hit the Road on the PC recently, his favorite character being Max I figured he would be pleased, he was!

I made up my own pattern for him, I couldn't find any on teh interwebs, it took me a while but I managed to get him done in time.

His hands were the hardest part (Max has such big hands!). They were difficult to capture in crochet, a lot of fingers were made before I had 8 which were pretty much perfect.

Roman Solider Amigurumi For Oxjam

We were asked to make the mascot for the Colchester Oxjam music festival, obviously I was more than happy to donate a custom amigurumi to them.
They wanted the mascot to be something that was connected with Colchester and decided on a Roman solider.
Colchester was the first capital of Roman Britain for our readers who don't know.

I used my basic human pattern, the helmet was the hardest part, I was worried I wouldn't be able to make the fluffy piece on top stick up but it all turned out fine; trial and error being my best friend here.


We're looking forward to the main Oxjam event in October, Mr. Pea and I love live music and it's all for a very good cause too!
