Rainbow fishies!

This was originally supposed to be for my gay friend David.
I was gonna put it at his bus stop.
But honestly? At 11:00pm I didn't want walk 3 blocks there, and then 3 block back, when I had to walk form 20 minutes home anyways.
(<--- This is me doing this tag)      
Either way, I did put it between his house and my gf's house! So he'll pass it and I will as well.
I think it was a brilliant compromise.

My friend David really likes fish.
A lot of people in my life right now like fish. Roomate, guy who lives down stairs, David.
I think I did an ok job of portraying fish.

This is the last of the rainbow yarn I got from my friend at the pride lounge. There may be more rainbows in the future, but none as matching as these ones I imagine.

Flowers in the summertime

So I'm finally getting around to putting up some of the pieces that I have had finished for a couple a weeks.
I know I should get out more, but I have many projects on the go XD

I really like the flowers in this!
It took me a while to get the hang of making the cute little flowers, and I'll admit that I totally improvised the leaves. In the end, the vine (which was just me crocheting it to itself over and over again) was probably the hardest part. If I do this again (which I would really like to) I will have to find a better way of making a vine.

I am so open to suggestions if anyone knows a better way to make a vine.

I wanted to place it on something metal, so that it had more life and beauty.
I think it did that XD

Middle of July

I am so sorry that I haven't been posting.
I realize perhaps that the warm sun convinces me to be outside playing, rather than crocheting.
But have no fear!
There shall be happy bright new tags up soon!
Just you wait and see!
