Last week, our kindy-going daughter did the Hungry Caterpillar topic at school, and that just gave me the enthusiasm to get this one cute caterpillar finished.
I had completed the red head, and two green balls of the body, before I had stashed it away. Then our youngest got the Eric Carle book for her birthday (yes we never had it!!)
So last week, stretching over to this week, I completed the last 6 green balls, and then had the fun of stitching it together to get the arch shape, and then crocheting the little legs and antennas, and making the spikes down the back.
Emma patiently watched and waited for it to be complete, helped me find some buttons for the eyes,
and then this morning after the school run, while the towels were still washing, we all sat near the warmth of the heater, her and her younger sister busy with a Hungry Caterpillar colouring page,
and I completed his last leg, stitched it on, and took some photos.
After a trip to school for show&tell, he will make his home up on the bookshelf, with all the books.
One UFO turned WIP, finished. Now I must finish my Krista Throw and the Bouncing Ball Throw before I get sidetracted again... ahem.
