Today was the first day of snow here, which is good timing for Sonny's debut:

I made this portable sun for Julia, who designed two of the books I had the honour of illustrating: "Who Discovered America?" and "Robots". Over the summer, I shared with her my hesitation about joining the world of crochet...

Along with an invitation to make her something, Julia told me that her teenage daughter--and her male & female classmates--were already using crochet and knitting for self expression. Her pep talk gave me the boost I needed to continue learning yarn-craft.

So here's to sunshine in the face of snow, and to encouragement in the face of doubt!


  1. Love Sonny! You have some mad crochet skills!

  2. Thank you, Myra! I've been admiring your My Little Mochi blog for months, with the Pocket Advent Calendar being a recent fave!
