    Crochet Blue Bear

    How did toy bears come to be named after President Theodore Roosevelt?

    Crochet Tiger Lilies :)

    What the Tiger Lily Means: 

    The tiger lily is a type of lily that represents wealth.  It’s probably because of the spots on its petals that can be taken to look like coins or money. But simply by its looks, not a few find the tiger lily pretty special. Giving a tiger lily to someone you love (especially in the past) means that you have much money to spend that you can buy something so special.

    The tiger lily also symbolizes pride because of its vivacious color. Although many flowers have vibrant colors like the tiger lily. Indeed, compared with many other blossoms, tiger lily can be more stunning and dazzling. Keep in mind that the meaning of “pride” in the tiger lily has a positive connotation which is confidence – and not vanity or arrogance.

    Nobility is also often associated with tiger lily and this is the reason why this flower is also a symbol of wealth

    Did You Know? 25 Golf Fun Facts

    As one of the world’s oldest sports, golf’s history is rich and varied. Although its origins are widely disagreed upon, the game has undoubtedly left an indelible imprint on society.
    In celebration of golf’s past and present, The Daily Tee has compiled a list of 25 of the game’s most unusual, awe-inspiring, and just plain weird facts. Enjoy!
    1) Breaking Barriers – Long before Annika Sorenstam competed in the 2003 Bank of America Colonial, Babe Zaharias became the first – and only – female golfer to make the cut at a PGA TOUR event, shooting 76 and 81 during the first two rounds of the 1945 Los Angeles Open.
    2) Break Needed – One of the world’s most popular actors, Samuel L. Jackson, is also an avid golfer. In fact, the star of flicks like “Pulp Fiction” and “Django Unchained,” has a contract clause to play golf twice a week whenever he films movies.
    3) Fortune Teller? – Prior to the 1957 Masters, Doug Ford not only predicted his victory, but his winning score of 283 as well. Sure enough, Ford’s projections came true, as he was fitted for his only green jacket. Perhaps Ford is a distant cousin of Nostradamus?
    4) Nearly Impossible – Is there anything that matches the feeling one has when they make a hole-in-one? How about two in one round? Recently, Oakland University’s Kassandra Komma did just that, recording two ones on her scorecard in nine holes. But, the odds are incredibly low, at one in 64 million!
    5) Splash! – Every year, roughly 125,000 balls are hit into the water surrounding TPC Sawgrass’ world-renowned island green 17th hole. During the 2013 Players Championship, 44 balls were lost. But two errant shots received more media coverage than any other. Attempting to capture his second Players Championship, Sergio Garcia carded an untimely quadruple bogey seven at the 17th on Sunday, losing two balls – and the tournament – in the process.

    Crochet Elmo :)

    Elmo is a Muppet character on the children's television show Sesame Street. He is a furry red monster with a falsetto voice, who hosts the last full fifteen-minute segment on Sesame Street, "Elmo's World", which is aimed at toddlers. He was most often puppeteered by Kevin Clash. Following Clash's resignation in late 2012, he has been puppeteered by Ryan Dillon.
    Elmo is self-described as three-and-a-half years old and his birthday is on February 3. Elmo characteristically avoids pronouns, referring to himself in the third person (e.g. "Elmo wants this" instead of, "I want this"). Sesame Street staff writer Nancy Sans once described Elmo's origins: "There was this extra red puppet lying around and the cast would pick him up sometimes and try to create a personality, but nothing seemed to materialize."
    The puppet, originally known as "Baby Monster", was performed by Caroll Spinney and Jerry Nelson in the background of episodes from the early 1970s, Brian Muehl from 1979 to 1981, and Richard Hunt from 1981 to 1984. Sans continues that "...one day [in 1984], Kevin Clash, a talented puppeteer, raised him up and brought energy and life into Elmo and from that day forward we would all write for Elmo. Kevin's performance inspired the writers to develop Elmo's character". John Tartaglia, Matt Vogel, and Jim Martin have all been secondary performers for the character, providing movement for Elmo's arms and legs, particularly in green-screen shots.
    Alongside Cookie Monster, Elmo has appeared in The Furchester Hotel, where he is taking an extended stay because of his fascination with the Furchester Hotel. His father Louie is the brother of Funella Furchester.

    Crochet Keychain Cat

    The domestic cat (Latin: Felis catus) or the feral cat (Latin: Felis silvestris catus) is a small, typically furry, carnivorous mammal. They are often called house cats when kept as indoor pets or simply cats when there is no need to distinguish them from other felids and felines. Cats are often valued by humans for companionship and for their ability to hunt vermin. There are more than 70 cat breeds; different associations proclaim different numbers according to their standards.

    The wooden mallet that a judge uses in court is called a gavel.
    Judges have them as a symbol of authority and also a forceful signal - they hit the sound block with the gavel to signal that the court is in session. They also hit it when the court is adjourned, when a sentence is passed and to demand order and silence in the courtroom.

    The gavel has been used to control meetings since the middle ages and there are rules for its use in 'Robert's Rules of Order'.


      I made a gavel & sound block by my husband request. Yarns used light and dark brown.
    Hook 3.5mm/E/4. The gavel & sound block sizes are as the same as real ones.
    I made them probably in 3 hours. I can give approximately pattern for them if anyone interested :)
