TAKEI PRIDE!  0

Hello stitchers! It’s almost Pride week. There is something that will make this year’s Columbus Pride Festival greater than ever
20140619-190941-68981376.jpg
that’s right, good old Uncle George is going to be the grand marshal of this year’s Pride Parade!

You don’t have to be Takei in order to have fun at Pride. Columbus is a pretty Takei friendly city, and I couldn’t imagine why anyone would live here if they were homophobic (not saying that they don’t, or why they would be in the first place). When I was in college I lived in The Short North, or “The Short” as they cool kids say. It has traditionally been the most rainbow covered area of the city. Therefore I started going to the Pride Parade when I moved there. To tell you the truth, my first pride parade was an excursion originally planned to keep my friend’s mom busy while she visited. We had a great time, said mom got a blow up sun from the male stripper float and I got a sunburn and broke my toe. It was very memorable.

In honor of this most festive of local occasions I have a hand full of Pride & Equality charts. There is a little bit of something for everyone :)

Have a safe and happy Pride!

Mōl loves Sloth!  0

It has been a rather boring yet eventful week. Mainly I was sick and spent most of the time in bed and trying to eat. I feel much better today and for some bizarre reason was thinking about Goonies. If you haven’t seen this movie, then you must. I don’t think I’ve met any adult or kid who doesn’t love this movie. There is pirate treasure, adventure, bad guys and of course Rocky Road!

Due to my recent feelings of monsterdom and my love for all things nostalgic and weird, I decided to whip out a Sloth chart. I just have the knit stitches (5×6). I have been working on a bunch of charts lately but they seem to be multiplying and only being slowly finished. I hope you enjoy this one though. Let me know what other nostalgic or nerdy things you would like to stitch!

Goonies never say die!

I’m looking for test stitchers!  0

Hello everyone! How are you handling the heat? We got a nice bought of rain showers that have helped cool things a bit and I am loving it. I even took Harry Dog to the (little) waterfalls since the rain made them a bit more exciting.

It’s farmer’s market season and we hit our first one yesterday, which just happens to be where the waterfalls are. The best part was a guy selling pies out of a hearse.

In other random scary news, my housemate diagnosed someone with Leprocy (Hansens disease). We also acquired another housemate without me actually noticing. He might be bringing another dog to the house if the Landman lets him. We are turning into a zoo.

In yarn related news, I am looking for test stitchers. I can chart way faster than I can stitch and am looking for test stitchers (knitters, crocheters, Tunisian crocheters, and cross stitchers) to help me on some patterns I want to sell. These are not patterns that will be on this site. I will still be making nerdy things and posting them for you to enjoy, just making more all together. If you are interested please email me at YourFPMolina@gmail.com. Let me know what kind of stitchery you do, and what kind of projects and imagery you would like to work on i.e. Crocheting Doctor Who, Supernatural, and unicorn blankets.

I didn’t buy any honey at the farmers market since I have lots of it at home, but I was tempted, so I whipped up some bee hive charts for you guys instead. I have Perler bead, cross stitch and knitting charts. I made a couple variations of each so there’s something for everyone. I think whatever you make with these would be great in a kids room, but you can appreciate them if you are a big kid too!

Enjoy!
