So, My daughter found this music box I had with one of those lampworked pianos on top? Yeah, well my piano had broke and it was not my favorite, especially since there were jagged pointy raw glass edges of death sticking up all over. So, I took my trusty dremmel and removed the broken piano and sanded all the pokies off leaving the mirrored base. Well, since my daughter is almost 2, a mirrored base would probably be less than safe, so I wrapped it up with quilt batting and crochet a cover to go over the glass. Thgen it sat for a long time just like that...with nothing.

I then picked up my crochet hooks again and decided a few amigurumi would be fun to have around. I started out with a goldfish and then moved on to a pig. The pig was cute but I was getting tired and lazy by this point and had no desire to put feet on him. It didnt take me long to realize you can't see pigs feet when they stand in tall grass...so I made him some fun fur grass. Unfortunately, doing that made him not as fun to play with, so I sat him aside.

This morning I saw the music box base and it all came together. The only thing that bothers me is the fact that the music box polays "Memory" which is a far cry from any happy piglet songs. My doaughter is thrilled though and could care less if it played Metalica's Master of Puppets. It's a "Ooombig" and Ooombig's do not have a theme song.

Ooombig.
