Happy Thanksgiving!  0

20140302-023415.jpg

I had a sudden lay-off of sorts at the beginning of the month and realized I wouldn’t have the means to go home for Thanksgiving, and the family’s annual gingerbread decorating bonanza.

My niece being super cute last year. Her mom is up top.

So I decided to book myself with some extra time with my old buddies Travis and Sprocket.

Travis loves his bone & pretending he’s a lap dog.

I also decided to watch the dog show with the Weims. It was exhausting for them.

I am taking this opportunity to encourage you to spend the rest of the week with friends and family. Instead of waiting in line to buy the next gizmo, sit and chat while making something by hand that someone will charish. A nice painting or pillow won’t go obsolete in 6 months. Ever since I was a kid I have felt a little bad when I’ve bought all my presents. My family always wants art anyway, it’s the curse of being an artist. No one ever asks my dad for free blood work for Christmas.

Today I made a Patrick Gilmore approved image of him as Captain Chaos. What can I say, I have a soft spot for guys in touch with their inner child.

I have to get back to the girls & pining for my grandmas cranberry salad. Be grateful & be safe on the roads!

Enjoy!

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

Rudolph the Stitched Reindeer  0

Yesterday I was huddled under my electric blanket, wishing I had some hot cocoa (feel free to send me gifts of hot cocoa), and poking around on Pintrest. Yes Pintrest, that place where the obsessive creators mingle with the mearly dreaming. My friend Rain posted this one Rudolph Ornament DIY that caught my eye.

So I spent most of today tapping these patterns out as the Landman hammered things downstairs.

There is one large pillow that I think would also be great in cross stitch, two washcloths and two Perler patterns (added a cross stitch pattern). As always, feel free to change colors to your style, or in my case usually, to make the colors you already have work.

Enjoy!

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!
