I hate Wednesdays

But not as much as Thursdays, they seem to drag.  I even left work early today to take the kid to get his last minute shots for school.  Apparently the school will not allow them to enter class next week unless they have them and I didn't have a clue, awesome parent award.

Tonight I will be working on an embroidery piece of Totoro, probably my most favorite character in the entire world.  Here are some photos of some other Totoro items I have created or am in the process of making currently.

Crochet Totoro

Wooden Coin bank that is currently in progress.  I'm not happy with the short stumpy arms so I will be getting around to fixing them, finish up the leaves, and then a coat of something to try and bring out the grain in the wood.


  1. I just need to tell you how much I adore the Totoro needle-felted pin cushion I bought from your Etsy store! Your crochet Totoro is the cutest one I have seen--did you make up the pattern yourself?

  2. Eeee, I usually love anything Totoro but these really are the cutest! Lisa says you have an Etsy store - could you share the link please? (Sorry if I'm being daft and it's already blindingly obvious on your blog!)

  3. Totoro!!!!!! so cute :D those noodles look mighty tasty.

  4. I officially love Totoro. These items are sooooo cute!!

  5. Those items are all adorable and Totoro is one of my faves as well. Can't wait to see what else you're working on or come up with!

  6. i just love all the totoro items you make!

  7. I would love to buy the pattern (if you'd make one) for the crochet totoro!

    I don't know if you have any interest in that, but if so, my email is

  8. When are ya going to make me a Totoro pincushion? I'll gladly pay for it! I think you are so talented and I'm totally jealous of your awesome creations!
