Byatwf: Wasabi the bunny

Today was bring your amigurumi to work Friday! Because I plan on bringing a different ami to the crafts fair tomorrow, Wasabi the bunny got to accompany me to work. But when we got to the store, Wasabi suddenly realised that he was a little bit shy… So he spent the day in our office, helping out with paperwork ^_^

He makes a great bookstand

He can do complicated calculations

And is a great conversational partner during dinner time (“are you really going to eat that?!”)

As to the person who forgot their roses in our store: thanks, they look great on my coffee table ^_^

What activities did your amigurumi help you with today?

Cheers, Lydia

Working hard, or hardly working? #BYATWF

It’s the first friday of the month again and by now you should all know what that means… Bring your amigurumi to work friday!

Since I work in a shoe store, I can’t take a lot of pictures during my work hours, but I tried to give you a ‘day in the life’ πŸ™‚

Today, Crocodile Steve got to come with me to work and he was as excited as could be:

image

Come on, wake up already! It’s time to go!”

image

“Have you got everything? Crickey, you sure eat a lot!”

image

“Safety first.”

Helping out with scanning all the new shoes that came in today, heavy work!

And after that, he decided to spend the rest of the day watching over the costumers from behind the register (but for some reason, the picture won’t load off my phone…) The manager didn’t even notice him until I pointed him out when it was time to go, so he wasn’t a bother at all πŸ™‚

All tired out after a long day of work. “Goodnight!”

Remember to bring your amigurumi to work next month ^_^

Cheers, Lydia

Ps: pattern by Christel Krukkert, from the book ‘Kleine Knuffels Haken’ (Crocheting Small Stuffed Animals, available in Dutch only)

Bring your amigurumi to work friday

Except I don’t have to work this week, since I’m on vacation πŸ™‚ not much room in my suitcase, but this little guy insisted on coming along to help me write the postcards ^_^

Every first Friday of the month is byatwf, so be sure to save the date and bring your creations with you to whatever you’re doing and where ever you are going! Did you join me and others today? Or will you do so next time?

Bring your amigurumi to work friday

This is a pretty fun concept thought up by DenDennis. Basically, what you do is: you bring your amigurumi to work on the first friday of the month.

Seeing how today was the hottest day in the history of the Netherlands, I thought it fitting to bring the newly finished penguin πŸ™‚ she had loads of fun checking out our new fall/winter collection!

Have a great weekend everyone! And remember to bring your amigurumi to work next month!

Sneak peek ^_^

Because I don’t want to end this day on a negative note, I worked real hard to finish up on the penguin. So here’s a little sneak peek:

Tomorrow is “Bring Your Amigurumi To Work Friday” a great concept by DenDennis (man, I’ve been talking about him a lot, haven’t I?) So I think I will bring this little buddy with me and take some fun pictures πŸ™‚ check back tomorrow to see more ^_~
