Pony Pasture Rapids

Wherever you go around here you are likely to end up on the James River. 😀 With my parents being around and the beautiful spring weather it’s just wonderful to hang out on the river. Everywhere little colorful flowers pop up and it feels sooo springy!

… and it’s never too early to stop by Carytown Cupcakes and have one of their heavenly treats.

Alpaca

Wir waren mal wieder wandern in der Naehe von Charlottesville, VA. Wie immer wollte eins der Tierchen mit, um sich bei einem Photoshoot in Szene zu setzen. Diesmal habe ich mich fuer ein niedliches, kleines Alpaka entschieden … einen Rucksack wollte es alledings nicht tragen. 

We went for a nice hike again in the Charlottesville, VA area. As always one of my creatures wanted to come to get a nice photo shoot. This time I decided to bring the alpaca though I was a little disappointed that it didn’t want to carry my backpack. Beast of burden, pffft!

Lazy Teddy Bear

I finished the little teddy bear and took him on a photoshoot last weekend. We went hiking in the blue ridge mountains but little teddy was too lazy to walk … he insisted on being carried around. And then he wanted to sit on this cool rock and enjoy the scenery.

Chores be dammed

Happy Thursday everyone. My car is in the shop today and I’m stuck at home. So I could clean the house and do the laundry … OR … I could finish this little guy. I love how his face turned out and look at those cute paws.

Run and hide! Dragon on the loose

It’s a gray Saturday in Virginia and someone is on it’s way to terrorize the village 😀

Sometimes I make something for someone and then I like it so much that I want to keep it for myself. So here you see dragon number 3 and I’m not sure if I can part with it.

Es ist ein grauer Samstag hier in Virginia – und jemand macht sich gerade auf den Weg das Dorf in Schutt und Asche zu legen.

Manchmal haekele ich etwas fuer jemanden und dann gefaellt es mir so gut, dass ich es selbst behalten will. Hier seht ihr nun den dritten Drachen und ich weiss nicht, ob ich mich von dem trennen kann.

Kommt der Cowboy vom Friseur – Pony weg!

Sorry no chance of translating this into something as funny as the German version so I’ll just skip right over to this little equine dude. Well, the pattern was actually for a unicorn with quite long legs but I think my version is just as cute. I mean who doesn’t like stubby legs and spiky hair?

For the original version of this pattern look here: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/robin-unicorn

Das ist einer meiner Lieblingswitze … und natuerlich der vom kleinen, gruenen Dreieck. (Na, neugierig?) Und weil ich auch immer wie der arme Cowboy vom Friseur komme, hab ich mir ueberlegt, ich haekel mir einfach ein Pony. Und traraaa, da ist es! Das original Rezept ist eigentlich fuer ein langbeinig elegantes Einhorn – aber wer will schon elegant und langbeinig sein? Ich mags untersetzt und mit Stoppelfrisur.

Und nun noch die Werbung (fuer die ich weder Ruhm noch Reichtum bekomme): Der Link zum Originalmuster: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/robin-unicorn

Mama Kangaroo and Baby

I really like marsupials – the thought of curling up in a nice warm, furry pouch and being carried around all the time is very appealing. I’m somewhat lazy I guess. Pattern by Lalylala -> https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/kira-kangaroo-n-vii

Beuteltiere sind sooo niedlich – der Gedanke, in einem kuschelig warmem Beutel umhergetragen zu werden, spricht mich einfach an. Ich bin vielleicht etwas faul, zugegebenermassen. Und hier kommt die Werbung: Das Muster fuer das schicke Tier, gibts hier: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/kira-kangaroo-n-vii
