It’s been too long since I wrote in this blog, and for that I apologise. I’ve been rather busy. Too busy to even snatch the odd half an hour it takes to write a blog post. So what have I been busy doing you may ask?
Crocheting. Lots of it. Why have I been crocheting? For fun? Well, yes crocheting is an endless source of amusement for me but it’s not that.
I’ve been selling crochet goods in a few shops and have had quite a busy time just keeping up with restocking.
I’ve since made two more versions: this one for Alex in Australia and his girlfriend Sophie
I’m crocheting lots because of a cat. Not just any old cat, but a miracle cat called Anakin. Anakin the Miracle Cat is a beautiful cat who lives in the USA. He is rather a popular boy, not just because he has remarkably handsome features and a personality to match, but also because he is rather special, being born with no pelvis or back legs. But don’t feel sorry for him, here he is climbing a Kitty Condo tower quite happily.
Isn’t he remarkable?
Well it all started for me when Anakin’s ‘grandma’ contacted me on my Facebook page ( www.facebook.com/CrochetBrightandBeautiful) to ask if I’d create a crochet version of her little kitty for her daughter. How could I say no? So I did.
Well since Anakin, I’ve been flat out hooking, making pet portraits for people all over the world, from Norway and Denmark, to Australia , Canada , USA and of course, right here in the UK.
As you can see, I’ve been a busy bunny. I’ve come quite a long way since I wrote this first post about my ambivalence towards making cats…
So, if you know anyone who is looking to have a dear pet immortalised in crochet or you are looking for that purrfect gift for a pet lover, pop over to either my Etsy shop (outside the UK) or for my UK people, my Folksy shop. There are links there to order either a cat , dog or a Diva Dolly. If you have other pet critters you’d like me to make, just drop me a line. I love a challenge!
