On the amigurumi front, I have finished the little puppy dog. However it was not without problems as I didn't stuff the legs enough and it was like 'Bambi on ice' - its legs kept going into splits when I tried to stand it up. Rather than risk trying to undo the stitching and maybe cutting into the crochet, I decided to have it as a lying down puppy. Below is a pic of it with Mindy (Mindy is on the left - just in case you thought that was the amigurumi!!) As you can see, she looks really thrilled with it!
As it was Pilates night tonight, I am now heading to relax in front of the TV before bed - though I did have another idea for a different kind of spider - but I will just make a note of the idea and keep till tomorrow!
