Happy New Year!!/You should try turning it off & back on again  0

How is your New Year going? Did you have a great holiday, or should I say have you recovered from the holidays?

I went back to NE Ohio to see the fam. We had Christmas at Grandmas since it will probably be the last year we get too. She seemed to enjoy having everyone around, even if she couldn’t remember who they were. I even found some cookies I could eat, the best cookies too.

My mom and I also went to my brother’s to opened presents with the kids. My niece loves costumes so my thrifty brother bought all kinds of outfits & wigs when everyone had Halloween clearance sales. So smart & so cute. She is going to be a cosplay girl, I can see it. She was the one who played Halo in her flower girl dress.

Along with a blanket my Sis (in-law) made, and a bunch of yarn from my mom, I also got a lot of small things from my Grandmas house. I spent a day helping my Aunt clean and organize a bunch of my grandma’s stuff. She was a kindergarten teacher and very crafty. It was like walking through a time capsule. I tried to only take things I really wanted or could use. It was fun.

So I got back home to Columbus & it hit me. I have spent the last few days, including New Years, in bed sick. My bags aren’t even unpacked.

Once I feel a little better I’m going to restart start my New Years & start the Year off well. So I give you one of my favorite nerd boys, Moss, as our first chart for 2014.

Happy New Year!

Merry Yule & Impending Christmas!  0

Christmas is coming! I hope you are ready. It’s time for all those last second shoppers to go out & wreak havoc in the stores. Personally I finished wrapping up most of my presents today. I only have a few more to finish making & wrap. My title of World’s Coolest Aunt, is on the line. I managed to only purchase some small things, like for my brother lives on M&m’s. My holiday excitement starts on the 21st and ends on New Years, so it’s going to be a busy week of socializing with friends & family, and unfortunately driving.

I thought this week I would pull out a hand full of charts that I either had posted on my old blog, or have been floating around in my Dropbox far too long.

I hope you enjoy your holiday, or at least New Years!

What have you been making for the holidays?

Enjoy!

This is a pattern I made shortly after acquiring my charting program. Kaboom!, was one of my favorite games to play on my uncle’s Atari, when I would visit my grandma. We always had Christmas Eve at her house with my mom’s side of the family. Grandma had her own cake shop & would make elaborate gingerbread houses every year. This time of year always reminds me of her, and oddly enough so does Kaboom!

This summer I spent some time helping take care of my other grandma, who has Alzheimer’s. She is in hospice care right now and this year we are going to have Christmas at her house for probably the last time. Always the bird watcher she has a great bird watching window, feeders always well supplied, where there are always cardinals hopping around. I made these patterns during my visit.

These next few graphs remind me I’ve almost every adventure video game I have every played. These always remind me of Zelda of course, nothing beats that shiny gold cartridge.

Doctor Who!!!  35

It’s about 5:00am and I recently woke up. Usually this is about the time I would finally go to sleep, but I took the Weims on extra long walks today and ended up turning in early so I could get up in the morning and go to a local theater to watch The Big 50th Anniversary Episode of a Doctor Who!!!!! I have been super excited about Doctor Who for weeks. I have been watching it since I can remember, back on the Black & White we had at the farm house. Tonight happened to be the night my Landman decided to fire up the furnace, we burn wood not gas. I woke up sweating because I had grown used to using my electric blanket and trying not to touch the floor. Since I was up and super excited for tomorrow, I figured I would make this post. I found a great image of all the Doctors, on the Internet (Tracked it back to here) 20131123-051530.jpg I thought they would be great as patterns so I whipped a couple up. I also have a couple Tardis washcloths I had previously posted on my old blog. I hope to get the rest of the Doctors up by January, so stop back & check up on them. If you would really like one in particular for me to work on next, let me know. I’m not going in any order. I’m going to try and go back to sleep, and not sleep in for all the fun. Enjoy & save some Jelly Babies for me! -Molina
P.S. These would also make a simple bag. Make two sides, just like the pillow, line with fabric and ad a strap. 20131123-045832.jpg Tardis Washcloth Small 20131123-045900.jpg IMG_2006.JPG *Transformed into a throw by Christine

Happy Supernatural Halloween!  0

Happy Halloween, Samhain, Bagger’s Night, Trickster’s Night, Day of the Dead, Gay Christmas, Devil’s Day & of course new iPad day. I think that pretty much covers everything.

Today I have some Supernatural themed stuff from my old blog. I am a big Supernatural fan, I’d say in my top 3.

So enjoy these anti-demon patterns. There are some washcloths, a tea towel & even a special Perler bead pattern you can use to make hex bags to hide around the house for someone else to find. Great Halloween game.

Enjoy & be safe out there!
