Bear or Mouse?

Hi everyone,

Sorry I haven't been around much lately blogging cards but I've discovered a new hobby and I'm finding it very addictive! I'm learning to crochet...from books and magazines and also with my best friend Susie.  I've just finished this project and would like your opinion on what it is please!!

It's supposed to be a bear. I've only used some cheap wool (from Poundstretcher) so that probably makes a difference to him but ?????

What do you think? Is he a bear or should I try and make him a tail?

I'm slightly concerned as I'm hoping to try to make myself a cardigan and now I'm worried it'll turn out looking like something else...

Here's a couple of little dogs I've also managed to cobble together, lol

They're only key ring sized. The one on the right gave us a laugh as Susie bought me the kit to make him and also bought herself the same kit. We compared them the other day and her's is loads bigger than mine, lol. She's now called Slack Alice and she's christened me Tight A**e!!
It's certainly giving us some giggles this crocheting lark , which isn't a bad thing. You're supposed to enjoy hobbies aren't you.

Anyhow, better go. I've got someone here decorating my dining room for the next few days so I ought to go make him a coffee before I nip out to 'Fat club'. 

Thanks for visiting. I really do value your feedback. Hope to see you again soon.
Hugs Helen xx

  4. You and your friend seem to be having a ball with your new hobby. Good for you hun. I love the bear too as well as the cute dogs..loving the names ha ha. It's good to laugh. Your bear could be a mouse too if you gave it a tail. I think its the nose area that's making you wonder. it doesn't matter really I think they're all fab. HUgs xx
