Crafting update and a future Giveaway!

I am getting pretty behind in sharing the crafty stuff that I have been working on lately.
I knit my nephew Riley a T-Rex for his 2nd Birthday. I used this pattern before to make Solomon's Birthday Dinosaurs a while back. I decided to omit the scary teeth, they didn't look right no matter how many times I tried, this is a friendly T-Rex.

Also the craft- along I am part of made the Easter Garden on page 25 of The Children's Year by Cooper,Fynes-Clinton and Rowling for the April craft. We planted this a week before Easter, but I am just getting to sharing mine now as it took quite a long time to sprout. We planted cat grass in ours and our cats have been enjoying it.

I have also added several pairs of light weight cotton pants in several sizes in fun prints to my Etsy shop for summer and I will be adding some skirts very soon.

Wow! That T-Rex is amazing! I love him. Do you have a pattern link? (The link back to Solomon's dinos isn't working for me...)
