I made this little guy to sneak into John's computer bag. I hope he found it!
This was very easy to make. I made a magic loop, then did three rows without joining rounds: DC 12 in loop and draw up, DC 24 (2 in each stitch) and DC 36 (2 in every other stitch). Then I folded the cookie in half, stitched the edges together most of the way around (gotta leave room for the fortune!) and stitched the folded edge to itself halfway down. Voila!

Oops, I forgot to post the patterns I used. Here they are:
Crocheted ice cream cone
Crocheted frosted donut (This one wants me to sign in to view it, but I didn't have to before. Luckily I wrote it down, I guess.)
Here is a great site which helped me find these patterns:

The other day I asked Miss Maggie to blow her Aunt Rachel a kiss (over Gmail Chat, of course). It was so cute (as described to Rachel by me) that Rachel threatened to buy me a video cam for my birthday, so I took a video on my digital instead.
Here is Maggie showing off some of the signs she knows, including some made-up Wiggles-based ones (a duck flapping it's arms, which used to be "quack" and has now become all birds). She also makes some animal sounds and blows a big kiss just for Rachel. I haven't taught her how to blow kisses, so this is what we get when I don't model it for her.
