Lady on left: “Just keep smiling until she drives off…”

Girl on right: “Can’t that car go any faster?”

Lady on left: “Right? As soon as grandma’s out of sight, we can take off these hideous sweaters.”

Girl on right: “I appreciate her making us stuff, but damn, theses things are awful.”

Lady on left: “I feel kinda bad, but there is no way in Hell I’m wearing this potholder in public.”

Girl on right: “Good thing she only visits once a year.”

Lady on left: “I lover her to death, but I really hope that yarn store burns down soon.”

Fiesta… forever…

Normally I’d be tearing apart a goofy craft scene like this, but not today kids!
I’m actually going to give the shoot director some credit here because this is, hands down, the most thought-out crocheted doll clothes scene I’ve ever seen; and believe you me, I’ve seen my fair share of questionable crocheted doll clothes scenes.

One could argue that there are no dolls of color in the mix, but I’ll save that debate for another day. They DO have the blind fold, the piñata stick AND the colorful piñata burro!

For having fun with the setting and following through with little details, this magazine cover gets a YOU TRIED participation ribbon from Sad Patterns!

Just a few stitches…

It’s probably going to take you the better half of 2 years to finish crocheting this thing, and you’re gonna drip tea on it? Hell, if I spent that long on something that takes a double-ought hook to work up, that thing is getting framed
and hung in the national gallery.

And what contest did this thing win in?
The BORE THE HELL OUT OF PEOPLE WHO CROCHET BY FORCING THEM TO REPEAT THE SAME MOTIF OVER AND OVER AGAIN competition?
