July Boo-tay

The Veggies are in the process of collecting their GENEROUS donations. You philanthropists know who you are! When all of the loot has arrived at the hideout, the VLA gang will model it for all of you Vegetable Loyalists out there. Stay tuned!

For now, we can just peruse LadyLinoleum's recently acquired stash...

First is a small, but dangerous little guy crocheted by our own Jessica! Meet Gary, the shifty-eyed kumquat:



Upon arrival, Gary met up with Killer Korn and was soon enlisted into the VLA. Due to his shifty vision, Killer Korn thought Gary would make a splendid look-out at the VLA hideout. Gary agreed and began training with the rest of the VLA gang. Currently, this little kumquat dude has finished basic training and been taken under the collective leaves of Raging Red Cabbage and Tossed Salad in order to um, err, refine his newly acquired combatant skills. Gary sends his regards to you Jessica and thanks you for seeing his true fibrous combatant potential.

Next up. The Sampler! More indie craft stuff loaded into one package and mailed directly to your door than anyone can imagine. Take a looksee:



Did you notice the eyeball pin???

Sara, mother of Hooked, and just an all 'round amazing crocheter and person sent me this little giftie 'cuz she knows I have a penchant for argyle (green argyle no less):



Thanks Sara! I will definitely use this for my hooks. You're right, it's the perfect size!

And finally, furthering my quest to collect as many chickens as possible, I begged Lynn to swap with me - a Monster Crochet nekked chicken nugget for this:



How awesome is this lovely yellow hen? And two chicken buttons to boot! Wooohooo!

The Kumquat scares me! He's manic.....
But I love your new hook kit.

Granny said...

I never get anything in the mail either =( besides bills and things trying to sell me burial insurance.... I don't know if somebody knows something that I don't know or what. Maybe I should buy some carpet.
I love your new loot. The Kumquat is adorable.

I've always thought there was something a wee bit sinister about
ICEBURG Lettuce!!

ladylinoleum said...

Think about it, iceburg lettuce has very little nutritional value, not a whole lot of flavor and well, it's not a very deep green. With all this going for it, no wonder Tossed Salad is a little peeved...LOL

kath red said...

so you won't be crocheting any cockroaches soon then?

love the shifty eyed kumquat, and hey what about that pink eyeball bag - don't think i will be using one soon, but if you need such a thing then a pink one with eyeballs would be the way to go.
