Brandon the Bumblebee

Meet Brandon the Bumblebee!! Now I do NOT typically like insects at all! In fact, insects are one of my main stressers in the summer. But this fun little guy is about 9″ tall sitting and a fantastic and cuddly little guy! He’s the perfect size for a hug!

Now through April 7, get Brandon the Bumblebee 30% off in my Ravelry shop, no coupon code is required! Just add him to your cart and the discount will automatically apply at checkout.

Brandon is the first in a series of insects! He is a fun spring or summer toy or decoration! Watch for more fun buddies of his coming your way!

April Crochet-a-Long!

We are getting ready for the April crochet-a-long in my CAL group!! The theme for the month of April is “Try Something New!” My sweet admin, Lashele of Lil’ Miss Monkey Doodles is leading the fun.

Since this is Lashele’s first time hosting a CAL she decided to make it a “first” CAL. The patterns she has chosen may challenge some of you as it may be a “first” time doing the stitch, yarn, etc. The patterns are Azure the Winter Sprite, Lamb Noggin Pal & Winkie the Elf Noggin Pal (my first Noggin pattern.) Can you see a pattern 😉? Hopefully you will challenge yourself with something new & you will play along.

Also during the month Lashele will be doing a fun game/giveaway. Every day she will post a question in the group. All the answers can be found in the group, Made by Mary Facebook page, here on this website or my Ravelry page. Some will be easy & some you may have to search for. These questions will be open for 24hrs. The top 5 with the most correct answers will win a pattern of choice from my pattern shop!

Now through April 12, all three patterns are on sale 40% off with coupon code: TRYSOMETHINGNEW.
