Hello Stitchers!

I know you haven’t heard from me since November, things at the house have been kinda crazy since my roommate has been in and out of various hospitals due to her autoimmune encephalitis. Just yesterday she got in a wreck while on the way to the ER, luckily she only had a little extra stress from the adrenaline, she and the driver were both fine. People come from all over the world to wreck their vehicles in Columbus, it’s crazy during inclement weather. We just had our first real snow fall this past week and people are just wrecking left and right. The snow sure is pretty though.

I lost my phone at a 7-11 on the way back from Christmas with my family. I do all my charts on my phone, so I borrowed my roommate’s iPad to whip These up. I should be getting an old phone from a friend this week and can not wait.

In 1999 I bought my first stereo. It cost me $20 and was a Frankenstine machine built from the rag tag parts from future owner’s deceased parent’s stereos. The best part was that it had an 8 track and those things were in every thrift store & cheap. The two I listened to the most, while pulling all weekers, were both David Bowie, Space Oddity and Young Americans (I got the images from eBay).
8Tracks
I was sad when the old worn out tapes broke, and I did replace them once or twice before I could afford a fancy new stereo with a CD player *ooooooh*.

When I heard Bowie had passed I jumped to my first line of mourning, I had to chart him. So today I have a few knit charts and a cross stitch patter based on the Aladdin Sane cover art.

I decided tried something new for the knit charts this time around, I used only Red Heart Classic Colors. I know it can be hard to finding the right colors to go with color work charts. I went with Red Heart because everyone can afford it, is easy to find, and it is acrylic for us poor souls with wool allergies.

Feel free to send me any of your finished projects, contact me about any questions or comments, and stay warm out there.

Enjoy!

Hello Stitchers!

I managed to get sick just as the weather decided to get warm, so I had to go two weeks without stitching or charting. It was not fun to say the least. Because of this I decided to post some random charts that haven’t fit in with others. There are a mix of cross stitch square stitches and 5×6 knit stitches.

As always feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, magic cure-all potions, or pics of your creations.

Enjoy!

Hello stitchers! I have left another long lull between post. Once again I have been busy. I was out of town for almost two weeks house and pet sitting for family while they were on vacation. I got to spend some extended time with my first kittie Abigail a.k.a The Baby. I can’t believe it was 10yrs ago she decided I was her mommy. She’s still just as cute and stubborn as ever.

I also got to make a best friend, the cutest puppy ever, Miss Claire Bear.

It was a long trip but I did get to spend a good amount of time with the best niece & nephew ever, had a Doctor Who marathon with my dad, lots of Mexican food, and even got to hang out with my grandma while she was awake.

Once I got back home I got a great surprise “We got you a dog!” Actually my housemate just reacquired his dog, but all puppies in the house are my puppies. So say hello to my new buddy Odin!

While I was gone my friend Andrea was freed from the nursing home and allowed to go home! She still has a good bit of therapy to recuperate from Anti-NMNAR Encephalitis. We were also successful at making Family of Choice a Non-Profit, and I’m the Secretary, like a proper adult.

Over the last month or two I have started listening to a lot more music again, and am realizing how many musicians I know. So I decided to make some guitar pillows, based on a Fender Stratocaster thanks to a friend of mine’s love for his baby. I created a long pillow and two separate pillows that make the whole guitar. I have them as vertically stitched or horizontally stitched, so you can decide which way to go.

Enjoy!

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

*sticks out tongue*  0

A few months ago the whole internet was all a buzz about some award show that Miley Cyrus was on. I had no idea she had another album or grew about two feet. I am not up on my pop culture.

I clicked on some link just to see what the hubbub was about. There was a guy wearing a beetle juice outfit and some oddly placed bears. This includes the one on Miley’s outfit. Personally this is not the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen. I went to art school, after drawing naked homeless men at 7am you grow a thick skin.

My friend Rain has been an avid Miley supporter since the media got on her case about being lude. Personally I would have given her a C+ on her performance, it didn’t seem professional enough. She got the + for shocking the media, since it seems that’s what she meant to do. She could have done a better job at that as well. People need to calm down, it wasn’t that exciting. I’m not a fan of the tongue, but she’s been doing that her whole life. I’d rather think about hot cocoa, or Doctor Who.

So for my dear friend Rain and her positive backing of a kindred quirky kid (one that happens to be in the spot light), I bring you this Miley Cyrus pillow chart. I made a DMC cross stitch chart as well, maybe a simple mini pillow for your desk at work?

Enjoy!
