Killer Whale Crochet

Myra really wanted a stuffed Killer Whale. We could not find one at any local stores so I looked around for a pattern. I found a free Whale pattern on a Japanese web site, through the pattern search on Ravelry. I made a few patten changes to make it a little smaller and shape the nose.
I cross stitched all the white details on except the underside of tail. For the tail I just made one from white and crochet them together around outer edge. I added a fin to it's back, also.

Medieval Castle

This is Erik's extra credit project for Social Studies class.
It was a great recycling project.
The castle is built using; a shipping box, a box from a 12 pack of Ramen noodles, an oatmeal canister, the tube from a roll of wrapping paper, a Girl Scout cookie box, the tube from the center of a roll of toilet tissue, and a cereal box.

Chicken, Good

Yes, I did name her after the character Leeloo in the movie "5th Element".
And she absolutely needed a chicken.

A New Project

Shhhh! Don't tell. I Started a new project.
It is a Block of the Month from Grandma's Kitchen called, Friendship Flower.
Since the block sizes are given in centimeters I decided to make the background first, so I did not have to do the conversion to inches each month.
As soon as I get some more printer ink I will start adding the appliques to the sections.
