MARY POPPINS MYSTERY CAL : WEEK #5

Making our way back to the sidewalk chalk drawing, we visit the scene where Mary Poppins, Bert, and the children take a ride on a merry-go-round where the horses magically jump off the merry-go-round and the group finds themselves riding thru the countryside on merry-go-round horses. But that countryside ride is not without the excitement of riding thru a fox hunt, ending up on a race course, riding in a race, which Mary Poppins wins atop her purple and lavender carousel horse named “Jingles.” This of course leads up to arguably the most recognizable song in the movie, “Mary Poppins”–Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

This week I give you, “Jingles,” Mary Poppins’ purple and lavender carousel horse…

Mary Poppins Mystery CAL : WEEK #4

This week we move onto another favorite song, “Let’s Go Fly a Kite.” Mary Poppins looks on as the Banks family gather in song and leave their home to fly their kite that Mr. Banks has repaired. That repair job on the kite is symbolic of the relationship between father and children that Mary Poppins has helped to repair in her time as their nanny.

“Let’s go fly a kite
Up to the highest height!
Let’s go fly a kite and send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let’s go fly a kite!”

MARY POPPINS MYSTERY CAL: WEEK #3

This week we share our love for Bert. A man of many coats, I chose to focus on his chalk drawing self with his striped jacket, blue bow tie, and straw hat. As a kid, one of my favorite parts of the movie was when everyone jumps into Bert’s sidewalk chalk drawing.

MARY POPPINS MYSTERY CAL: WEEK #1

The day is finally here! That is, the first day of our Mary Poppins mystery graphgan crochet-a-long! I have planning the panels for this crochet-a-long (CAL) for about a year, so I’m super excited to see this CAL kick-off. Every Monday between now and December 3, 2018, a new panel will be released. You will see it here on this blog, but the patterns will be automatically updated in your Ravelry library once you have purchased your copy of the pattern.

Mary Poppins is my favorite Disney movie, and I’ve passed that love along to my children. We have fun watching the movie and singing the songs. I am getting my kids a set of the first few Mary Poppins books by P. L. Travers for Christmas this year, and I hope they’ll love them as much as they enjoy the movie.

We kick off our Mary Poppins CAL with the one and only….Mary Poppins herself! Flowers and a bow applique complete her look.

PACMAN CAL FINAL WEEK #5

Welcome to our final week in the PacMan crochet-a-long! This week, we work on joining our panels together, making a border, and the best part–the appliques! Because what is a PacMan blanket without PacMan or the ghosts?!

These are no ordinary appliques–YOU CAN MOVE THEM AROUND LIKE YOU’RE PLAYING PACMAN!!! That’s right! All the appliques have buttons on the back so you can move them around your graphgan game maze. Surely you can permanently sew them all on, but what fun is that?!

 

Meet Inky, Blinky, Pinky, and Clyde…

PACMAN CAL WEEK #4

Here it is in all its glory…the layout up to and including Week #4 of the Chaos And Chop Suey PacMan Crochet-a-long:

Final PacMan layout (1).png

Life happens and sometimes you don’t get to crochet as much as you’d like. So that’s not just me? Good. I was hoping I’d be caught up crocheting my own version of this CAL by now, but I’m still plugging away at it too. This week is the last week of panels being released. Next week, we will join and border the panels…and then the surprise!!!! I’m so excited about this upcoming week I can hardly wait! Since I have no shame in my game, here’s my current progress on my panel:

PACMAN CAL WEEK #3

You know how when you buy a new car, you start seeing them everywhere? That’s what’s happened to me with PacMan related stuff since this crochet-a-long started. I swear, I’m seeing PacMan stuff everywhere! I was on vacation a few weeks ago and I noticed the lifeguard’s sandals had PacMan all over them! Is anyone else finding PacMan in unexpected places?

pacman chacos

Like I mentioned last week, I found that the Pac Dots (those little dots PacMan eats) can be either white OR yellow. In the older versions of the game, the dots are white, while the newer versions of the game show them as yellow. So while you are working this panel up, take your pick! My tester that made the panel for this week decided to go with yellow Pac Dots (also what I picked)! This week in the PacMan CAL, we are working on the middle game panel…you know, where the ghosts start out:

week 3 panel

We are closing in here on the end of the CAL. I know, I know…we just started. But this PacMan CAL is a short crochet-a-long. With just 2 more weeks left, here is a rendering of what the crochet-a-long looks like at this point:

PacMan CAL Week #2

18 months ago I was first connected with Becki from Chloe Rebecca Boutique. In the last year and a half, we’ve become friends and collaborators. We worked together on my Grease crochet-a-long, and have done numerous little projects together. When we first started working together, Becki told me of her love for PacMan and her desire for a PacMan blanket crochet-a-long. This crochet-a-long has been 18 months in the making and I’m so excited we’re finally doing this. Enjoy Becki!

If you didn’t know, Becki makes super duper cute ergonomic crochet hooks. She has a PacMan hook that matches our crochet-a-long project:

Week #1 of the PacMan crochet-a-long consisted of title banner. This week we jump into the game maze with the top portion of the maze. After some research, I found that the Pac Dots (those little dots PacMan eats) can be either white OR yellow. In the older versions of the game, the dots are white, while the newer versions of the game show them as yellow. So while you are working this panel up, take your pick!
