Rose Tyler, and where I have been  3

Hello there my stitchers! I know it has been quite some time since I have made a post, it seems that leaving the house keeps one busy. Yes, my hermit hat has been replaced by a slightly more social hat. I miss my naps and endless hours for charting. I also had to rest my hand after injuring it, so there is that.

One of the most exciting things I have done while on my chartcation was seeing one of my favorite bands Frog Eyes (video)IMG_1755.JPG
That guy is Carey Mercer, the rest of the band kinda changes over time, which is how I ended up hanging out with the drummer before hand without realizing it. Afterwords we got to hang out with the band and they were very nice Canadians and people. I had got much adrenaline I was shaking for 3 days. It was a great night a long time in the making.

Last weekend was a neighborhood festival, my favorite local festival of the year, and I got to smooze with Babachu and my friend Russ happened to be taking pics capturing the moment.

Now that I have some time to sit and relax I finally got around to charting Rose Tyler, as per request. Sadly I haven’t been able to watch any of the new Doctor Who, but my dad is recording them so I can watch them on my visit next week. He is not a fan of the writing this season. What do you think of the darker side of The Doctor?

Enjoy!

*I have also been reformatting my Doctor Who Charts for knit stitches, so check in on those if you are interested

Welcome to my life Night Vale  2

Hello stitchers! It has been some time since I have posted, but I have some very good reasons. I have been working on a campaign to help my Friend Andrea and her family get reunited. There are some horrible probate practices in Ohio that are wrecking not just her family, but the lives of many people that have sudden illnesses. We need to spread the word about her illness Anti-NMDAR Encephalitis, which is newly classified and is commonly misdiagnosed as schizophrenia. Please check out Reunite-R-Family to help Andrea and to help spread the word about this disease.

I also took a week to go visit family. I spent a good portion of my time with my dad, which was awesome. We gave him “The Best Birthday Ever”, went swimming in his lake, and I gave him another “ToeHead” painting to add to his collection.
20140727-164949-60589763.jpg
This one is entitled “Who? Me?”, and was made especially for me by my buddy Daric. Daric is a great artist and you can see More of Daric Gill’s ToeHeads on Facebook or check out his artist blog for news on his many great bodies of work. WOSU, The local PBS affiliate, even did a segment on him for their Broad & High program. If you ever find yourself in Columbus you might see him working in a local coffee shop or riding one of his mopeds around town. He really is a very talented and super nice guy.

I injured a tendon in my right hand so I won’t be doing any stitching or charting for at least a few weeks. I am a pro at hurting myself while doing mundane things.

One of the other things I did this past couple weeks was join another fandom. I know, not that shocking. When I was at Marcon with my friend Rain this year, she talked about Welcome to Night Vale, and although I had heard about it I didn’t know what it was. Welcome to Night Vale, can only be described as a podcast of a news program in a fictitious town where strange things happen to strange people in strange ways. Rain said I should just listen, that I would like it. She was so right. I told her I had started listening and that I loved Night Vale. Then she told me that she and her daughter had gotten into watching Supernatural. They are apparently “in deep”! I am so proud.

Today, thanks to my new found fandom, I bring you a knitting chart of the Welcome to Night Vale cover. It would make a great pillow for any non-existent angel you couldn’t possibly know, or even that faceless woman that secretly lives in your house.

Enjoy!

Welcome to Night Vale Knit

Turtle Power!  53

Hello my stitchers! When I was in Middle and High School (in the mid 90s) my brother and I would race home to watch The Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles .

20140709-005241-3161847.jpg
Yes we were raised nerd. It was important to get home in time to see the second episode. It was also important to beat each other home so we could get the good seat, the one that let you control the tv. We only had one tv and no remote. There were a few physical altercations that occurred over this, and several bruises. The chair was serious business. We even ran home on Fridays, knowing perfectly well that it was going to be a rerun. If we had a DVR, life would have been way more productive.

Today I bring to you a hand full of charts, all knitting, of our beloved half shelled friends. The individuals are in 3 different sizes so you can make pillows or pot holders or whatever crazy projects you can think of adding them to. I even threw in the outlines in case you wanted to just knit & purl or fill in your own colors.

I have been rather busy lately with life, so July might be a slow month for posts and then again every time I say that I make a slew of them in a row.

As always please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, requests, good puns, or corrupted links.

Enjoy!

I found this sweater someone made using one of my charts. pretty awesome I think.

It’s my birthday, so it’s random stuff I like  0

That’s right, it’s the first day of July. Usually I don’t get to do much on my birthday around here but Canada likes me so much they made it A holiday! I love those guys. Since I’ve made it to 35 alive, I decided to throw up some random charts that might not be entirely understood or popular. There are a handful of you out there that will love them with me and I am cool with that. I will explain each novelty as I go, for those in the dark.

Obviously some of these have had some computer generated help, but it’s my birthday and I can do what I want.

BABACHU! This is a man who’s portrait can be found all over the world in any medium from oil paint to bronze, but you most likely have never seen him, unless that is you have ever visited Columbus, especially durring festival season. He was a great nude model from my college days, interesting features and the ability to hold a pose like a statue, and on the streets he’s got all the right moves and the best Jazz Hands out there! I always run into him at the strangest times. Once It was 5:30am the middle of downtown, no one around and I saw him blocks away and thought I was hallucinating. When he got close we stopped and had a nice chat about how we hadn’t seen each other in awhile. He’s magic I say.

This first chart is from an ancient poster for his dance class that my friend Lisa has some how kept in almost mint condition. It looks a lot darker than it actually is.

If you don’t know who Dean Winchester is yet, then you probably haven’t visited this site much. He kills demons, vampires, and all kinds of mooks. He also happens to be a smart ass. One time they caught him and threw him in jail for murder, so he threw out his best Blue Steal for the mugshot. It’s a classic Supernatural moment.

This leads us to the last and best section of my Birthday Love extravaganza, the Patrick Gilmore section. If you don’t already know about Patrick you should check out my Patrick Gilmore page, it will fill you in on all his actor type stuff. When in doubt I make charts of this goofy guy or tweet him strange messages. What can I say, he gives me lots to work with.

This is the face I imagine he makes after every take.

This last Patrick chart I am bombarding you with is my favorite pic of him these days. He took it at an award show I think. One of these days I am going to spend an eternity stitching this.

That’s the end of my mixed bag of odd little loves. If you made it this far I applaud you and thank you for sharing in my wacky world. It is the best present ever to be able to introduce you to these people and help you stitch those things you never thought you wanted to.

Enjoy!

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!

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.
20140605-180421-65061874.jpg
*Wet and happy Harry

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.

20140605-180657-65217003.jpg
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!

I Wuv Supernatural  0

Hello my stitchers! I have been working on a hand full exciting projects…that sadly I won’t be able to share with you for quite some time. I know, I’m a bit of a tease, but hopefully it will be worth it.

In Patrick Gilmore news, they finally put out a trailer for the new show he will be on Gracepoint. I’m happy to see my boyfriend David Tennant, on tv again, but his American accent kinda messes with my head. It’s a remake of a BBC show called Broadchurch. Are you guys going to watch? Let me know and we can get nerdy together. Patrick isn’t in the trail and I don’t know what kind of character he will be playing yet, but I’m still excited.

Another exciting thing that happened last week was the Season 9 finale of Supernatural. I totally saw it coming but I still haven’t recovered. I think I’m a bit in denial. I’m not going to spoil anything for you who haven’t seen it, but I will weep with those who have.

I have been working on this cross stitch for some time now, but after that finale it was perfect timing to finish it. Remember everyone’s favorite bi-polar nut-job of a giant teddy bear, T. Bear? Well I mashed him with Dean’s “I Wuv Hugz” teddy bear shirt. Yes now you can sum up all of your post season angst with a nice relaxing cross stitch that feels your pain.

It’s rare but all I have is a cross stitch for you, don’t get too used to it. I did make a large print version of the chart and also one that just has the marks (for you fickle stitchers that do whatever it is you do with those). I do plan on making a version with all the outlines done, but it takes ages for me to do all of that on my phone. *I updated with outlines* Unless I get a visit from the iPad fairy (a girl can dream).

Enjoy your long Memorial Day weekend! Be safe, be thankful, and enjoy!

-Molina

P.S.
Don’t forget to let me know what you want to stitch next!

I don’t know what happened but I seem to have missed the lines on the right paw. That’s what I get for charting past my bead time. I’ll fix it soon.

I need a life….potion  0

Last weekend was MarCon! I had a great time and think I have recovered. If you are into cosplay or multiple fandoms, then this con is for you. This year was a bit of a rebuilding year so the crowd wasn’t as large, but still tons of fun.

I spent most of my day (since I had an overnight puppy gig on Friday, I just got a Saturday pass) following these guys around20140517-163819.jpg
Behind those awesome 100% home made costumes are my friends Rain & Todd. They did such a fantastic job. I spent most of the day making sure they didn’t bump into walls, and cutting strings off their costumes. Who knew, Tusken Raiders shed. What’s super awesome about the whole day, was that not only did they win the Journeymen category of the big Masquerade, but they won best of show! Even better, you can see how to make your own Lady Tusken from Rain herself Here. No, once again I don’t get paid to say these nice things, they are just amazing.

I wish I had gotten more pics from MarCon, but I was having fun, using other peoples cameras, and mothering Tuskens most of the time. I did get a few on my phone, one which made my day, because he gave me a Jelly Baby!

This guy was super nice, his friend built this awesome suit for him, but I can’t remember the name of the video game.

20140517-165347.jpg
This guy was great as Rick from The Walking Dead, he had the moves down pat! The pic is red because we were at Barfleet and he was having an in-depth conversation with Todd about the comic books vs show.

There are some much better and pretty cool green screen photos over at The Sci-Fi Photo Guys.

20140518-135927-50367872.jpg

After all that excitement it was time to recharge my hermit batteries, so I cranked out some potion charts for you. These are based off of a game I have been playing since Android was new, Zenonia! It’s more like old school Zelda than any phone game I could find, and I’m addicted. I’m currently playing the 5th installment and it’s killing my sleep patterns. I’m not a big gamer so it holds a special spot in my nerd life.

I’ve got Mana & Life Potions; square with DMC colors and knit blocks, and simplified versions.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, requests, or link glitches via:
Twitter @FPMolina,

email: YourFPMolina@Gmail.com (I try to check it once a week),
or simply comment.

Bag That Angel!  5

Ever want a Castiel magnet? Well now you can make your own. Watch out for those other flying dick bags though, you never know who might hear it. (If you have no idea what I’m talking about, don’t worry. You just don’t watch Supernatural)

I have a variety of Angel Siren chart sizes. I made each in squares (Cross Stitch) and knitting blocks. Also a Fused bead (Perler) pattern and a stencil.

Let me know if you stitch something up, and if you catch any angels.

Enjoy!

Stitch Your Polish!  0

Hello! It’s another fantastic Spring day filled with lawn clippings, pollen and sneezes. It’s a bit gloomy but it’s not raining yet, so I’m happy about that.

You all know I’m a huge nerd. I love Sci-Fi, fantasy, and a plethora of other nerdy things. What you might not know is that I also have a very girlie side (and a rather butch side but I’m sure we will get to that some other post), and I Love to paint my nails. I do a lot of work with my hands so they don’t tend to stay nice very long. If you have the same issue I have the perfect thing for you! It’s called Gelous You use it as a base coat and as two topcoats (sealing the tips on a topcoat). I did my nails last weekend and although I have beat the crap out of them this week they look like a day of wear with good quality base and top coats. It’s magic I say! I tell everyone who shows a slight interest in nail polish, and no I’m not getting paid for it.

With my obsession in mind I made a hand full of patterns of Nail Polish! Shocking I know. These charts can be great to use up some small leftover skeins, and show your love for paint fumes and pretty fingers. These would probably be great presents for the right teenager or manicurist in your life.

I have singled out each size bottle so you can throw it on a sweater or scarf or what have you. I have them in knit blocks and square blocks (DMC). I left the backgrounds on the pillow charts empty, so you can fill in a color that fits your decor. Also I have “Polish” marked generically so you can pick multiple or single colors, or make them all the same. Mix it up, use up those extras!

Let me know how you polish things up!

Enjoy!
