Over at instructables.com i saw that someone had made a crocheted bunny for the Vanna’s Choice contest thing~ and the pattern name was ‘Madeleine Rose’!!  That’s my daughters name!!!  If anyone has it please feel free to send it to me!!! (the notes said that it was from a knit simple magazine from last year)

    I just love reading your blog! You always finds such cool sites and links to cool things to crochet (or make in another way).🙂 Thanks for all the time you put down to this, even if you just do it for fun!
    I like to read all the other stuff too, of course!😀

    I started the one hour bag
    Find and unearth the sewing from under junk:20 min
    Look through fabric, realize I only have scraps: 5 min
    Look at fabric.com : 20 min.

    I need to just go to the store and buy a bolt of fabric!
    Then make the amazing 1 hour, 45 min. bag!
    Thanks for the link, it was exactly the kind of thing I like!

    Glad you like my scarf, it was so much fun to crochet and I love wearing it! I might end up making lots more, in all sorts of colour combinations… I was halfway finished with my first one (and not really sure it was going to work out) when I found the pattern for your scarf. It was good to see someone else had come up with more or less the same “construction plan”, so I couldn’t be all wrong!😉
    Best regards and happy crocheting — Birgit
    (Oh, and thanks so much for the link to the felt food tutorial, I MUST buy some felt this weekend to make Farfalle for my son!!!)
