Humpty Dumpty in Crochet

Sorry to have been AWOL for so long, but I used the government shutdown to stay away from the computer.  I have discovered that staring at a computer screen and staring at a crochet project seem to have different effects on my eyes, the latter being so much more preferable!  And, a lot of crocheting I did!  Here's my latest project -- Humpty Dumpty in Crochet.

The pattern is now available in my Ravelry store at this link:, and if you purchase before October 31st, he's 20% off with this Ravelry coupon code:  Humpty2013

Now, you might be asking, why Humpty Dumpty?  Well, here's an example of how a crochet designer can get inspiration from just about anywhere.  I have family who lives in Bethesda, MD.  So, when I go to visit, I often cut across Connecticut Avenue to Wisconsin Avenue by going down Bradley Boulevard.  One day there was a bit of a back up, so as I was sitting there, I looked over and at the end of a house's driveway was a little stone Humpty Dumpty sitting on the retaining wall.  He really brought back memories of the children's nursery rhyme, and I did a little Wikipedia research to find out more.  Anyway, he got my creative juices flowing, and this is the result!

What's been inspiring you lately?!
