We all need a BABY GROOT in our lives!
Its undeniable. !! So here are my two versions of Baby Groot.

One is from Guardians of The Galaxy and the other a more grown up, but still Baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

For the Baby Groot in the plant pot I followed the pattern that Twinkie Chan posted to her blog right here (Click Me) 

For the Baby Groot in Uniform, I kind of made it up as it goes, but I found a basic similar pattern for the body . I really wish I wrote the stitches down! 20170529_16400320170529_16415520170529_164347

This one is a basic and easy pattern. I found it translated in Spanish and its a PDF file ready for download.- 
You can find the link to this one here .

I came across the a big challenge. One I was avoiding … but I knew i would have to face.

Follow a a Japanese pattern.
I mean c’mon….you look at a pattern and it looks like the design plans for a nuclear reactor or something!

So basically since I really wanted to try this Kitty out, I sat down with yarn , crochet needle,pen & paper and started to figure it out as I knitted.  It actually wasn’t that hard that way.  If you have been crocheting for some time, you already know how to guess some basic rounds that are usually always the same.
You can find the original pattern for download as well as several other patterns by clicking HERE .
Now I modified the pieces a bit, for example I didn’t do the hind legs.
I used the ears of the bigger model.
I didn’t add the color patches like specified.
Since I used a different needle and yarn than recommended, the place of where eyes went is a bit different then where recommended.
Just a few observations that might help when you try this pattern.

I saw this pattern on line and I loved how simple it was, and also how versatile.
You can mix and match colors and change stitches as you please.
I modified a bit from the original version to make little Zombie, Dracula or Frankenstein Cats.
Here are some rough photos of when i started making the litter of kitties, details still missing of course.
I haven’t made new ones, and I have gotten much better at them through time, but I really wanted to share the pattern.

This is a very simple and basic pattern. I used it in many ways, since all I had to do when  I wanted a smaller or larger ball was use different size of yarn or / and hook as well as reduce rounds.
Im not very good like I have mentioned before with writing patterns, in general I just scribble in a notepad and it comes out. But  I tried to format this the best I could, any questions   just drop me a comment!

How many of you have gone through a media content craze and deleted half your accounts?
Well its been about six years since I started this site, sharing little things I was interested in but I was about to close it down today.  I don’t have much time like I used to, and to be honest the surge of other social media tools have overpowered others (now a day I’m mostly on Twitter and on Instagram)
Long gone and closed are some of my old Websites,  MySpace, Blogspot accounts and others…. I barely use Tumblr or Pinterest anymore.
I actually had to make an Excel file with pages, emails and passwords to keep up with all the sites, since its not just my personal ones, but I have the site for Amigurumi & Crochet  and some others for bands I work with.

Its exhausting! Seriously, its exhausting…..

And honestly, sometimes you feel that its not worth it , blogging is a dark and lonely place. But then as I opened the tools to see what  masterpiece of personal ranting I would save for eternity…..I noticed that I had over 80,000 hits…..WOW!  Someone out there has been paying attention to what I write, or rant or post or whatever.
Nevertheless I  was determined to keep closing down more sites , I had just closed down two Photobucket accounts and two Yahoo email accounts getting ready to hit  the Delete button on my WordPress.
But in the end…I just couldn’t go through with it.

I have become very much attached to this site, its sort of my personal playground without the 140 character restriction of Twitter, or the endless hashtags of Instagram, or the drama and politically correctness of Facebook.
I know this place is sort of a mess, its in Spanish or English depending my mood, I don’t stay focused on one subject and I am all over the place, but its MY place, its me….
Its my soothing cup of tea.
I just couldn’t do it…simple. i still feel i need this place, my little corner “Queenie’s Corner”.
Has this happened to any of you?  I would love to hear about it, just drop me a comment so I know I’m not the only crazy one.

Llegaste a la puerta de mi casa una madrugada pre tormenta de Noviembre de 2012.
Estaba lista para ir a trabajar y veo q estabas sentado en la calle mirando para adentro y empezaste a llorisquear y ladrar como hablandome.
“Dejame entrar”
“Dale estoy viejo y cansado”
” Por favor se avecina una tormenta y me asustan”
Vi tus ojos, amorosos y sabios. ¿¡Como no te iba a dejar entrar!?
Ojos de guerreros que vieron pasar muchas noches callejeras, muchos dias de hambre.
Cuerpo con cicatrices de mil batallas , un sobreviviente. Un viejo guerrero.
Con las orejas faltando pedazos, apenas unos dientes, el cranero hundido de algun golpe al cual sanaste cual wolverine canino.-
Las patas chuecas, una pierna torcida por algun auto que no te vio pero seguro siguio de largo luego de pegarte-
La cadera de costado pero con vitalidad para saltar aunque sea dos veces para saludarme cuando llegaba de trabajar.-
INVENCIBLE! Por eso te bautizamos CHUCK NORRIS.-
Eras mi dulce Norris, mi viejito, el sabio regalo de los cielos que vino a bendecirme ya que ni bien te uniste a la familia , enseguida nos enterabamos del milagro de Matias.-
A veces siento que no te dedique el tiempo que merecias, siento que pude cuidarte más. Estos años que justo caiste fueron de tanto cambio y tan locos.
Viste convertirme en soltera sin preocupaciones, a pasar a ser madre, esposa manejando mas cosas de las que a veces podia.-
Perdoname si no pude darte mas caricias, o prestarte atención cuando me mordias los tobillos porque querias jugar.
Espero haberte brindado algo de tranquilidad,seguridad,amor y comfort a tus últimos años viejo querido.
Es hora de que sigas vagueando pero esta vez entre las nubes, saludame a Buck y a Chili Pepper que seguro te esperan para jugar.-
Q.E.P. D. mi viejo Norris-

You came to my door one November morning of 2012 before a big storm.
I was ready to go to work and I saw q you were sitting on the street looking in
and you started to whimper and bark like speaking to me.
“Let me in”
“C’mon I’m old and tired”
“Please storm is coming and I’m scared”
I saw your eyes, loving and wise. How was i not going to let you in!?
Eyes of a warrior who saw too many street nights and many days of hunger.
Scarred body of a thousand battles, a survivor. An old warrior.
With ears missing pieces, only a few teeth, sunken skull from some blow which seemed to heal like you where a canine Wolverine.-
Crooked paws, a crooked leg for some car that did not see you but surely kept on driving after it hit you.
Hip joints old but with enough vitality to jump at least twice to greet me when I came back from work.-
INVINCIBLE! That’s why I named you CHUCK NORRIS.-
You were my sweet Norris, my old man, the wise gift from heavens that came to bless me. As soon as you joined the family,we learned of the miracle of me being pregnant with Matias.-
Sometimes I feel I didn’t give you the attention you deserved, I feel that I could have taken care of you more.
These years were just with so much change and so crazy.
You watched me become from a carefree single woman, to a mother and wife handling more than I could at times.
Forgive me if I could not pet you more, or pay attention to you when you bit my ankles because you wanted to play.
I hope I have provided some security, love and comfort these last final years.
It’s time you continue your journey but this time through the clouds in the sky, say hello to Buck and Chili Pepper for me. Im sure
they are waiting for you to play with them Rest in peace my dear old Norris
