It is a brand new year of crochet fun for 2020! I will be working on other crochet items in between the crochet items on the following list:
This year I am choosing one random Helenmay Crochet Special Donor Member that sends me a postcard/handmade card before 1Oct20 with a crochet design request. If you would like to find out more details, here is the direct blog link: Helenmay Crochet Special Donor Member 2020.
- Finished January 2020. The first amigurumi project for the new year is a Crochet Amigurumi Koala. Denny Campbell contacted me via Facebook and requested that I make a crochet amigurumi Koala so that she could make them as fundraisers for the real Koala’s. If you would like to find out more about the Koala’s and the protection of their habitat, here is the direct link to the Australia Koala Foundation. Here is the direct blog link for my adorable crochet Koalas: Crochet Amigurumi Koala and Baby Koala

- Finished 17Jun2020. Started 3Jun2020. Danielle Johnson contacted me via Facebook and said: “Thank you for doing this. (Designing the crochet koala’s). We finally got some rain so I hope and pray it rained in the right places. The number of Koalas that died is alarming and their habitat is burnt. It will take a long time to rebuild what was lost.
It’s still so heartbreaking to come back to my homeland after living in New Orleans and seeing this devastation.
Also prayers to the firefighters who lost their lives in the raging fire.
I can’t wait to make these (crochet Koalas) and donate them for raffle draws to raise money for the bushfire appeal.
Now we just need a matching Kangaroo! What do you think Helen?” 🙂 I was able to finish a crochet large amigurumi kangaroo. Now, I am just finishing up the littler crochet kangaroos as of 17Jun2020.
- Finished 17Jun2020. Christmas Crochet Angel request made by a family member. Planned completion date is before Christmas 2020. I followed a crochet PDF written pattern from One and Two Company whose crochet angel is just too adorable. Pictures coming soon. Started 14Jun2020.
I am ahead of schedule for the year 2020. 🙂 Now, my next crochet projects will be determined by the winner of my Helenmay Crochet Special Donor Member random free giveaway! Deadline is 1Oct20
