Have a Happy Panda Thanksgiving!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!! Thank you to all my lovely followers. Your likes and comments really support and inspire me. :) Have a great one!!

I'm making all the sides this year. We have a mix of American and Chinese dishes: green bean casserole, stir fried mushrooms, potato salad, and danko (white turnip) soup. We bought the turkey with sticky rice and a stir fried greens at a Chinese restaurant this year. I'm too scared to actually try to cook a turkey. hehe And 3 types of desserts: almond jello with fruit cocktail, red bean mochi bars, and apple turnovers. Yum!!!

Lovely Baby Lion Amigurumi

I was lucky enough to test another adorable version of LookAtWhatIMade's lion. The first was the amish puzzle ball, then came the lovely, and now this adorable amigurumi stuffed animal.

He's an adorable little hand full. He's the perfect size to be carried around by a little one. :) I'm going to give him with the lion lovely to a friend who's having her first baby boy. :)

She has lots of great patterns, some free and some not, on her website. :) It was a lot of fun to make him. :) I hope you guys try too. :)

My largest amigurumi to date! Watermelon loving Elephant. :)

I was delighted to test Laura’s, Happyamigurumi, Elephant pattern. He turned out huge because I used a 4mm hook when the patten called for a 2mm hook.  He turned out to be 15in tall and took about 10 hrs to make. I loved the colors. And since they were watermelon colors, I had to make a yummy treat for him. :)
So here is my Elephant. He loves watermelon just like his grandma. :)
He found a great home with my step brother in Colorado. :)
