Back in May I was scurrying as quickly as my hook (and job) would let me to finish up a food set for my little lady's 3rd birthday...and finish them I did. This was a pretty significant accomplishment for me because a) I worked on these only during my lunch hour, ahem 45 minutes and b) these are my own original patterns, most of which I wrote down. Huzzah!
To my satisfaction, Boober loved them. She liked all of her gifts. The day after her party she, uncharacteristically for her age, went through each gift again and made sure she explored and played with each one. We make all kinds of soup and delicacies with the crocheted produce now, but I didn't want to stop there.
