4 Down - - - ??? To Go...

My children are my biggest source of inspiration - and my biggest supporters .. even if I don't want them to be... :o)

By that, I mean, when they see me hard at work on a crochet piece, they constantly interrupt with a "Mommy, what are you going to make next?"

Mind you now, I've barely got 2 legs and a body done and they are already onto the next piece... 

Now usually I say something like, "I just got started on this one - sheesh, I've only got 2 hands!"  which has them scurry away for a little bit...  
But if I was to say ... "I'm not sure." or the dreaded "I haven't thought about that yet." I am bombarded with suggestions.. and what's worse - half their collection of stuffed animals.  At this point, I think my room has more of THEIR stuffed animals, than their own rooms do.  From Build-a-Bears to Beanie Babies and everything in between...

I must giggle though - they are so supportive and proud of me.. it just fills me with pride!  
These 4 critters have been tested and are currently being typed up for sale in the FiberDoodles by K4TT shop.

Monkey, Zebra, Giraffe and Piglet.
Simple Stitches to include: slip stitches, chain stitches, single crochets and half-double crochets

Young children, toddlers and infants should ALWAYS be supervised when playing with this type of toy.  There may be small pieces that a child can dislodge and there is potential for ingestion or aspiration injuries.  Check all toys periodically for breakage and potential hazards. Broken toys can develop small parts which may present the potential for ingestion or aspiration injuries. A toy that cannot be repaired should be thrown away immediately.   Please remember to use a yarn which is safe, as young children are likely to put toy in their mouth.

LOL I know exactly where you're coming from. I'd get twice as much done if not for my nephews and niece...or would I?

hopefully my little babygirl will support me like this, when it is the time for it ;O)
by now she's taking a tiny look at my work, saying something like " oh, nice" and forgot about it at the same moment *gg
your critters look great, I'm looking forward to new entries!
