A Rebuilding Month And The Little Prince  0

Hello Stitchers! January has always been a bit of a rebuilding month, recovering from the craziness of December’s holidays and the cold snowy January weather. This year has been especially so, since I had my phone stolen at the local casino. Casinos are generally unexciting, and rather depressing. It was my friend’s birthday however and I took one for the team. Within 20min, and not till I sat down did I notice, my iPhone was gone. As you know I do my charting on my phone, so this was a huge set back. Luckily a friend’s boyfriend sent me an old iPhone and the iCloud magically brought back all the charts-in-progress I thought I lost! I must say the whole situation was a trial and made me feel very lucky to have such amazing friends!

When I was a kid my mom would read to us all of the time. I come from a family of readers and teachers, so books were always a big part of my life. One of the books that we always loved was The Little Prince. I’m pretty sure we had Mom read it to us even into middle school. It wasn’t till high school when my friends read it in French class, did I realize other people read it too.

These are my The Little Prince charts that I had been working on for some time, lost on my phone, and got back. I have both cross stitch and knit blocks of the prince on his little planet. The rest are knit block charts. My favorite is the Hat/Boa eating an elephant.

What books did you like reading as a child that have stuck with you till today?

Enjoy!

Minecraft!  9

Hello stitchers! It’s been snowing and getting crazy cold outside. This has given me a great excuse to spend the last few days under the blankets, huddling with puppies, and working on today’s post.

My fantastic friend Christina, has a cute kid and they love watching Minecraft videos. I actually didn’t know about these videos till I made a Stampy Cat post that she requested. For those of you like me, who would rather build things in real life, these videos turn a complicated game based on simple concepts into hilarious entertainment.

My lovely nephew also loves playing Minecraft and asks me if I want to play every time I visit. So I did some research and created a set of Minecraft based charts that cover character “skins”, a couple monsters, and a few specific players that the kids like to watch.

Players: Hero Brian, Steve, and Enderman
Monsters: Skeleton, Zombie
Characters: Superman, Link from Zelda, a Minion, Chewbacca, The Incredible Hulk, Green Lantern

I made these charts in square blocks, so you can use them to add to a knit project (although they might be more squat), add to a crochet project, make them from fused beads, weave them out of glass beads, or even build them from Legos! I have also added cross stitch charts with DMC colors and optional line work. I even added the cross stitch “marks only” charts so you can see the line work.

So if you or a loved one are Minecraft obsessed, or you just want to make a Chewbacca scarf, I hope you find something on this post to make your day happier. Just click on the name below the image to download the PDF chart from Dropbox.

Enjoy!

By The Power of Greyskull, Happy New Year!!!!  6

Hello stitcher! I hope your holidays went well. I spent a long time hanging out with my family and managed not to start the new year sick like usual, even though my mom was sick and had laryngitis which was hilarious for me as I acted as her over-embellishing interpreter. I am also one day away from fulfilling one of my two New Years resolutions, waiting at least a week to eat any of the pickled eggs my dad and I made. It’s been torture. I love pickled eggs.

While I was back home I retrieved a quilt hanger out of my brother’s old room. While I was in there I found his best childhood Christmas present, the Castle Greyskull my grandparents got him back in the 80s. I was so jealous, I always got Barbies instead of the He-Man and G.I. Joes my brother got, yes I was always a tomboy.

So my first set of charts this year are some of my childhood favorites: He-Man, She-Ra, The Power Sword, the Sorceress, Evil Lyn, and of course everyone’s favorite stinky villain Skeletor. I have them all in two pillow sizes in knit squares.

I also created a quick multiple choice survey for you to take so that I can better fulfill your stitching wishes this year. I promise you will all get an A+ if you take it!

Enjoy, and have a happy new year!
