Happy New Year (a bit late) and Happy Chinese New Year (well, almost!). As the lunar new year approaches, let’s all bid bad luck adieu and channel all the good luck!
I’ve actually had quite the year and I’m so thankful to EVERYONE who has been with me! Last October, we officially launched Huggable Amigurumi, my very first Amigurumi book with the amazing Martingale & Co.
I also guested in the blog of the uber amazing Stacey Trock of FreshStitches.com, Modern Baby Crochet, Cuddly Crochet, and Crocheted Softies! We talked about Huggable Amigurumi and little Lila! She also has a giveaway for my book!! You can read the post HERE.
Speaking of Stacey, I also got to try out Stacey's AmiClub, and I've been LOVING it! It's super cool to be part of an online group (i've never been). We get to talk about ami and non ami stuff, crochet and non crochet, and she even shares lots of cool tips! Overall, I've been enjoying getting to actually interact with more people from all over! Ps, she also has sales and freebies there.
I also got to watch Moana late last year and I decided to make my own little Heihei and Pua, don’t they just look adorable? Their patterns are available HERE for Heihei and HERE for Pua.
I also got to finally put up my pattern for the rooster I made for Inside Crochet up for FREE from now until 1 week after Chinese New Year’s, get it HERE.
I also got to make a brand new rooster - it’s a bit less humanoid and more like a cartoon version of the real one! A lot of people have been asking for the pattern so I have decided to post it for FREE for 24 HOURS — I read about this from another amigurumi designer. After 24 hours or by Jan 23, 2017; 3:30pm, GMT+8, it will be for $2.99. Ravelry will automatically give it for free, no coupon code needed for those 24 hours!
Here’s a cutie pie photo of Heihei, Baby Rooster, and Riley Rooster!
Ps, I know everyone’s been wondering about my old free patterns and what happened to them! I was reformatting my tumblr and it got deleted. I’m working on retyping each of those free patterns again and I shall PDF them to make sure they’re all there and won’t be accidentally deleted.
I hope you’re gonna have a wonderful Chinese New Year and that there may be many more luck and joy for everyone!
