It's probably tacky to 'revive' your own post but I forgot I had posted this way back in 2006 and so I was going to post them today and realized, after some searching, that they were already on here but I updated the photo since I'm better at taking pictures now and added the close up.

I made this stack of little penguins in 2006 and thought I would share them with you.

With the exception of the base, they are made for one piece of wood and that meant that everywhere there was an opening between the penguins, I had to drill a small hole and then thread my saw blade through that before starting to cut - it was one of the most challenging cutting jobs I had done up to that date.


        

Close up of my favorite guy (wouldn't you look like this if someone was stepping on you?)

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

I love this!  I can't imagine how much work (and patience!) went into this!  Excellent! Love it!

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?
