|Groundhogs in Crochet|
We all know that the largest Groundhog Day celebration is held in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania with the famous groundhog Punxsutawney Phil, and has gained even more popularity in the years since the 1993 film Groundhog Day.
To celebrate Groundhog Day, which is the mid-point between the winter solstice and spring equinox, some of my Etsy friends and fellow crafters have come up with interesting Groundhog-related creations.
Groundhog Day Confetti
|Hand-cut Groundhog Day Confetti|
I love this set of confetti in a Groundhog Day theme.
A Groundhog is also known as a Woodchuck, from the word Wuchak, the Algonquin word for Woodchuck. We are all familiar with the tongue-twister “How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood.”
Waldorf Toy Wooden Prairie Dog
|Wooden Prairie Dog Waldorf Toy|
This cute little wooden replica comes in a set with one prairie dog that is standing up and a dome crater for him to stand in.
The prairie dog stands approximately 2 inches tall and is 3/4 of an inch wide. The dome crater is 3/4" tall and is approximately 2.25 inches wide at the base.
The creator behind this Prairie Dog and the Etsy Shop "Imagination Kids" is Erin of Indianapolis.
Cute Groundhog Cookies
|Mini Groundhog Cookies|
These groundhog cookies can be ordered in PF Confections' signature almond sugar cookie or in the classic vanilla sugar cookie
All cookies in this Etsy Shop are hand-baked by Picket Fence Confections of Philadelphia. A large variety cookies in large and mini sizes and various fun shapes can be found in this yummy looking shop.
Amigurumi Hand-Crocheted Animal
|Henry, a Handmade Crocheted Critter|
Then - your blog-host, Wednesday Elf, created an amigurumi animal for her Etsy Shop, Coastal Crochet Crafts and couldn't decide what it was – a groundhog, a hamster, a woodchuck or a guinea pig. Since Amigurumi is the Japanese art of crocheting small stuffed animals with a 'cuteness' factor, my friendly little critter fits that category. I show him off here in case you wanted a cute crocheted groundhog (or anything else you wanted to call him).
Groundhog Day, the Movie
Happy Groundhog Day to all
