So I've never crocheted finished anything before but my daughter's 1st grade class is reading Mr. Popper's Penguing and she requested a penguin to bring back to class Monday.  I found this pattern on the Lion Brnad website and whipped it up in no time.  I'll be accepting my mother of the year award later Smiley
Here he is in the infant stages:

the finished product:

Where else would a penguin live?

As always thanks for your comments

That is so precious!  And I love the little Santa tree in the middle, where did you get the pattern?  And how big is it?  That would make an adorable wall hanging

LURVE IT TOO!  Cute fabric and I like the idea of satin stitching the fabrics together at first glance I thought it was piping between the fabrics.
Great job, can't wait to see the pink one

I absolutely DETEST bread pudding but I believe I am a changed woman after reading that recipe and seeing the pics.  It's not slimey snotty looking bread pudding, it actually looks rich and savory and delectable.  Hope you had a Merry Christmas and a great 2010!

$12 is steep for those but they look like good sturdy chairs I think you made a good decision
449  COOKING / Dessert / Wedding cake and mini cakes on: July 17, 2009 09:31:11 AM

So this may be my first and last wedding cake, my girl, CiCi got married this past week and my present to her was to make her wedding cake. Easy enough, right? HA! I had never made such a cake and the ideas and choices are endless so I settled on a 2 layer 6 inch round red velvet cake for the bride and groom and 24 mini cakes for each of the guests. The flavor for the mini cakes were: red velvet, chocolate, devil's food, white, french vanilla and yellow. Each cake was then crum coated with either buttercream, cream cheese or chocolate buttercream and then covered in marshmallow fondant.
Starting out was easy enough, I didn't have a 6 inch pan so I bought one at JoAnn fabrics, I only bought one pan because I thought I was only going to make this small of a cake once so if I had to bake two batches no big deal. But when I was measuring out how many mini cakes I had to make and how I would have to cut those out of the pans I realized my 8X8 pan was the way to go. Problem you may ask? I only have one 8X8 pan. I had 12 cakes to bake (2 of each flavor) at 30 minutes each, so right away there was 6 hours of my time GONE! Onward we move,
I had an assembly line in my kitchen that rivaled Gordon Ramsey, he would have been proud. My ever helpful 6 year old stuck it out with me until 11:30 and she was pooped so I set out to finish it myself.
I gotta tell ya, I was pretty pleased with myself, I always had a cake in the oven, one cooling, one being crumb coated, one being ready for fondant. I started at 6:30 p.m. 2 days before the wedding and finished at 3:30 that next morning. Needless to say I was spent but the end result was fabulous. Everyone ooohed and aaahhed at my creation, the minister took pics she was so impressed. The bride and groomed loved hacking into a red velvet cake with white fondant it looked like a bloody mess.
And a damn tasty one at that

I agree it seems a bit unfair but I still threw my hat into the ring, can't wait to see what you make and GOOD LUCK!!
