Fun With Siri

Had a bit of fun asking Siri silly questions.

“Hey Siri, sing me a song.”

“Hey Siri, okay Google”

Remakes are Not Always Better

There was a thing going around the craft forums online last year, to pick a project you made years ago and remake it.  To pick something you made when first starting your craft, and see how far you’ve come.

I decided to remake this little turtle…

That little guy was first made way back in November 2009 – literally a month or two after I first started crocheting.

I had another attempt 8 months later, that came out looking a little… off.

And then my remake was made in August last year.

I’ve always known that the plushies I make are slightly weird looking.  I guess I hoped that 8 years would’ve improved my crochet skills a little better than that, but there you go.

To be honest, I haven’t crocheted many plushies in years.  I knit a lot of mini aliens, but I mostly crochet blankets.  Blankets I can do.
