Final Part of the MCAL

Have you figured out which 80s character the MCAL is? It’s from an old video game.

Here’s the last part.

Yep that’s Q-bert. He’s so cute. I just want to squeeze him.

I’m glad I did this, so I could fix the problems with the pattern. I’ll repost the Q-bert pattern with the errors fixed.

Did you make one? Did you figure it out? Let me know. Post pictures.

MCAL part #2

MCAL part #2

It’s been a fun week. I had a craft fair last Saturday that kept me pretty busy tagging and setting up. My dad made me some awesome shelves to display my stuff. Due to work, my husband stained them.

Now I have to make bags to protect the dulcimers my dad has been making as payment. That’s my plan for tomorrow afternoon. My daughter decided it was fun to be the Easter Bunny. She had a great time in that suit and even posed for a picture with her dad.

Seriously, she’s 14, posing with dad is her least favorite thing. At least the rabbit ears make her taller than him.

I also decided to play with resin to make some necklaces/keychains.

Sadly, the resin for the first set of ten refused to harden. I hate it when the resin gets all soupy. Thankfully, my second set of ten was perfect and order was restored to my world.

I also got this book from the library.

I can’t stop myself. I have made the flamingo, the camel

and I am working on the alligator.

Don’t judge me as he is propped up against a wine bottle.

I’m trying to get as many done as I can as I have to take it back to the library soon.
