The Pink Booty Lady

Ok, I said I wasn't going to post a pic of her, but what the hey. I'm embarrassed but at the same time I laugh because she's not your 'average' booty lady. (Do we know what an average booty lady is??? lol) I figured we all may need a hump day laugh.

What I should have done was pull her apart and start over from the booty down. I was feeling good about her until I put the butt cheeks on. After that it all went to heck. A co-worker said Monday that I should just crochet a skirt, which I tried and it's just not working out. I made other clothing articles for her and they turned out jam up. I was ecstatic about the shirt and shawl....which btw the shawl is a pattern that I scaled down just to see how it would look. I made this a while back also and stashed it so I don't have the pattern. Please pardon me on that. All I did was add a button. The other accessories are just piddling.

I'm really at a loss now. I started another amigurumi doll and she's not turning out either. So I think my amigurumi skills are going down the tubes. I thought I was getting better at it but found out different. So without further ado...........

Sigh........I seem to be doing a lot of sighing lately.

I do want to get on to another subject real quick like. Please......where ever your travels take you, take a second look when you are driving. We have lost quite a few people riding motorcycles lately in our area, and they all have been the fault of the other driver. Sometimes bikes are hard to see, but if you take that second look you may save someone's life. Those people riding those motorcycles had families. Those families are now minus one member because of someone else's carelessness. With the economy the way it is, a lot of people have taken to riding motorcycles because they're cheaper on the gas bill, so there are a lot more of them on the roads. I haven't ridden mine as much as I used to because of my back but I have gotten more hesitant to ride sometimes because motorcycle fatalities are up. I've had quite a few near hits in my years of riding and they were pretty scary. I definitely had an angel riding with me each one of those times. Please people......just take that extra second, that extra look of both ways, especially since the rush is on here at the holidays. Thank you.......from all of my fellow motorcyclists.

So on that note, have a wonderful hump day! It's a little over 3 weeks til Christmas folks. Can you believe it? My how time flies.


  1. Hi Kat,
    Well your little pink booty lady is "special." I think she is cute. I try things and they don't work and then later they will, you may just need an amigurumi doll holiday, it may all come together later. Have a great Wednesday!

  2. I am so grateful we have met online. What a boost you have given me with your comments -- especially lately.

    I am awful at that doll stuff (can't even pronounce the word) so I think yours looks GREAT!

  3. Let's see . . the Pink needs a skirt, huh? How about this.

    Make a chain that will fit around her embellished butts.

    Join . . keeping chains on the same side.

    Rnd 1: sc in each st, sl st to join, ch 1

    Rnd 2: sc in same st, sk 1, ch 1, (2 sc in next, sk 1, ch 1)repeat ( to ) around. sl st to join, ch 1.

    Rnd : sc in samest and each st or space until you get to the 2nd of the 2 sc, (place 2 dc in their, sc until you get to the next 2 sc) repeat ( to ) around, sl st to join, ch 1.

    Keep the pattern going until it is wide enough for her butts . . then make enough rowns of only sc until you h ave the length you want.

    Make a chain "belt." Run through the rnd with the skipped st . . tighten and see if it looks like a skirt.

    Let me know what happens . .or better yet, post a pix so if it is good, everyone will say, "WOW . . nicec job."

    If it ends up bad, you can blame me! LOLOL

    have a great two days at work.


  4. Hi there. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I know how it feels to lose a dog. We lost our airedale a year and a half ago. Lost our cat a week later. Both had to be put down. I didn't think my husband was ever going to recover. We weren't looking for a dog when we got this one. We believe he was abandoned in a park, where he was found by our neighbor. I posted the story a couple of months ago.

    About the 'special' doll, well first of all she made me smile. And that's good. She doesn't have to be perfect. I think she has my butt! Make her skirt out of material. Nothing could be easier. A strip of material basted at the waist and there you have it. Keep her - she's funny.

    About the motorcycle safety. I agree. My husband has an Indian Chief and I just wish he'd sell it. There are too many 'legal' distractions in cars now. Videos, texting, talking on the phone..they should all be banned in a car.


  5. Good God Almighty . . . you were right. Sure glad I am here in my little corner of the world and not really out there.

    Now, I shall go back and hide in my snow drift :0{}



I'd love to hear what you're thinking!
