Link and My Hiatus  2

Hello Stichers! Sorry my posting hiatus lasted a few months longer than I expected. First I injured my foot pretty badly, then I moved in with a friend of mine because she was sick and Dr. House was not available, and then we had to get roommates because Cobra insurance is insane. Then last yesterday we finally got a diagnosis: Anti-NMDA Receptor Encephalitis, the same rare disease I spent all last summer working on an educational campaign for because another friend of mine contracted it. I almost feel cursed, but I am glad that I could have potentially saved the life of a great friend.

Today I bring you some charts from Zelda, but you don’t have to be a sword wielding elf to save the day. I used the names I called the characters back in the day, when we had to blow into that shiny gold cartridge every time we played. There are knit/crochet charts as well as cross stitch charts, so everyone can stitch their way to victory.

As always, feel free to message me with any questions, comments, winning lottery numbers, or pictures of your creations.

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!

Pitfall and Daria: My 80s and 90s Loves  0

Hello Stitchers! Winter has finally hit and I’m sure for many of you, like me, it’s full on yarn season. Whenever it gets cold I have the overwhelming need to make warm and fuzzy things. The last few weeks have not only brought on the winter chill, but I also hit over 20,000 hits on the website! Thank all of you for you interest in my charts and all my crazy ramblings. I really appreciate it!!!

When I was young I used to pull out my uncle’s Atari from under my grandma’s tv and fight with my brother at who got to play Pitfall first. Being the little sister, my brother was always way better at it. I never did get a good hang of it, but I still have great memories of playing. So I made a set of Pitfall related charts, from simple to complex so everyone can relive their favorite Atari memories.

I have also been watching a lot of Netflix since winter hit, and did a lot of searching around and found one of my favorite sarcastic, grumpy, high school loves, Daria. I must say she is still pretty fantastic. Although I see a lot of Daria in myself, I’m more of a mix between Daria and Jane…..but I’m pretty sure that’s true for a lot of high school outcasts in the 90s and probably today. I cranked out an opening logo chart, as well as a Daria and a Jane chart so you all can sit on your couch, and be grumpy together.

Let me know what characters from your childhood/teenhood you would like to stitch, and I might just whip up a chart for you.

Enjoy!

Mr. Stampy Cat!  5

A little while ago a good Internet friend of mine asked me if I could make a chart for her. She is just starting out with cross stitch and I was trying to help her. She got one of those horrible kits that quickly lost her attention. I told her to try a pattern that was more fun. A few days later she sends me this weird cartoon of a cat and says that this is what she wants:

Now I just got to work on it without thinking about it too much. Then one day I just Googled Mr Stampy Cat, on a whim. I am sure glad I did, because he‘s hilarious.

20140530-235455-86095293.jpg
As you know I’m not a big video game player, but Mr Stampy Cat makes videos of his Minecraft games. He has other players come over and play games and have adventures with him. You can listen to his delightful accent and watch him eat cake off a camel’s back here!

I have three cross stitch versions (and a bonus pixel set) of Mr Stampy Cat, each with varying degrees of complexity, so you can stitch one if you are a newbie or if you have a house full of floss.

Let me know what other characters You might want to stitch, or just tell me how cute your cat is.

Enjoy!

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.

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:

or simply comment.

Enjoy!
