So, I haven't been successful at brushing amigurumi because I've been using the wrong kind of brush! I was trying to brush with a plastic tipped cat brush. I got a wire dog brush and wow! It works! Instant fuzzballs! I rebrushed the cactus and now look at it!
|Now the cacti that are supposed to be fuzzy are fuzzy!|
|Brush on left good for amis. Brush on right, good for kitties!|

Skunk is a cute amigurumi critter I crocheted using "Cute Little Dudes - Forest Dwellers vol.3" pattern by Lisa Vanvikaas (hattalahutta). Skunk loves the outdoors! Every year, my dad and his friends go canoeing in the boundary waters of Minnesota and Canada. They have been doing this since before I was born. I have never been on this trip. For the last two years, my brother Steve has gone with him. I believe I haven't gone because the portages sound very strenuous! This year, Skunk decided to go. Maybe next year I might go... If someone carries the canoe for me on portages!

I crocheted an apple wedge for my chinchilla (apple pattern from Tasty Crochet)
|I got a new book, Around the Corner Crochet Borders by Edie Eckman. Then I realized I hadn't done anything from her previous book I purchased, so I did a couple of patterns from Beond the Square Crochet Motifs. |
|Around the Corner Crochet Borders by Edie Eckman, and some new crochet hooks :-)<><> >>|

I finished sewing the pirate garb on to my Monstie Pirate...
