    Wow some beatiful crochet on this thread! Not so sure I am as good as all of you. I have dabbled in it all my life but never truly mastered it. Here is some if my lastest work...

    TwoCrows, those are adorable! You are very talented.

    I tried stuffed animals for awhile when exploring different crochet techniques but always got so frustrated when trying to cram polyfill into all the crevices evenly. This one caused me to learn some new four-letter words but the happiness on my niece's face when I gave it to her made it all worthwhile:

    I'm just a beginner. I made some afghans last year for Christmas presents, and am currently making a baby blanket for my niece. I need to get that done. Her baby is due the 18th.

    I crocheted one stuffed animal once! I was pregnant. I did strange things while pregnant! LOL! I prefer knitting, but have crochet hooks and know how to use them.

    I love the swan "taxidermy" crochet project! What fun! That rug! wow! That's enough to make me want to pick up a hook!
