R.I.P. Leonard Nimoy  0

Hello stitchers, it is a sad day. Today we lost Leonard Nimoy. I grew up watching Star Trek with my dad and always loved Spock. He was my favorite. Later in life I watch him in the Star Trek movies, Next Generation, on Fringe, and of course on his occasional guest spots on various shows. He also had a great twitter feed (the obove image is his last avatar), always ending in LLAP.

As it turns out I mourn the same way I love, so I immediately charted out this Spock image I saw on my feed. I haven’t done many Star Trek related charts because there are already so many out there, but this one I felt compelled to do.

Grieving is logical. Live long and prosper my friends.

Cain, His Fantastic Beard, and Some Bonus Flash  4

Hello stitchers! As you know, I am a big Supernatural fan. Well this week Cain, and his fantastic beard got quite a blow from his blade buddy Dean. He had some amazing hair this time around to go with the beard. In honor of Cain’s fantastic follicles I have a hand full of Cain knitting block and cross stitch charts for you. I even made a First Blade border for you cross stitchers.

Another one of my Tuesday night pleasures is The Flash, so I decided to thrown in a couple knitting block charts of the Flash emblem. One is the new Flash and one the old school comic book version.

It’s been cold and snowy this past week so I’ve been giving my phone and hand quite a workout to make these, as well as rewatching a few seasons of Buffy. Although I should be taking a few days off to rest my weary hand, I have a special post comming up on March 5th that I am pretty excited about, so stay tuned.

I hope you all are staying warm and well. Please let me know, as always, if you find any bad links, have any questions or comments, want to share your macaroni and cheese recipes, or have pictures of your stitching creations. I love seeing your finished projects.

Enjoy!

A Rebuilding Month And The Little Prince  0

Hello Stitchers! January has always been a bit of a rebuilding month, recovering from the craziness of December’s holidays and the cold snowy January weather. This year has been especially so, since I had my phone stolen at the local casino. Casinos are generally unexciting, and rather depressing. It was my friend’s birthday however and I took one for the team. Within 20min, and not till I sat down did I notice, my iPhone was gone. As you know I do my charting on my phone, so this was a huge set back. Luckily a friend’s boyfriend sent me an old iPhone and the iCloud magically brought back all the charts-in-progress I thought I lost! I must say the whole situation was a trial and made me feel very lucky to have such amazing friends!

When I was a kid my mom would read to us all of the time. I come from a family of readers and teachers, so books were always a big part of my life. One of the books that we always loved was The Little Prince. I’m pretty sure we had Mom read it to us even into middle school. It wasn’t till high school when my friends read it in French class, did I realize other people read it too.

These are my The Little Prince charts that I had been working on for some time, lost on my phone, and got back. I have both cross stitch and knit blocks of the prince on his little planet. The rest are knit block charts. My favorite is the Hat/Boa eating an elephant.

What books did you like reading as a child that have stuck with you till today?

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!

By The Power of Greyskull, Happy New Year!!!!  6

Hello stitcher! I hope your holidays went well. I spent a long time hanging out with my family and managed not to start the new year sick like usual, even though my mom was sick and had laryngitis which was hilarious for me as I acted as her over-embellishing interpreter. I am also one day away from fulfilling one of my two New Years resolutions, waiting at least a week to eat any of the pickled eggs my dad and I made. It’s been torture. I love pickled eggs.
Pickled eggs
While I was back home I retrieved a quilt hanger out of my brother’s old room. While I was in there I found his best childhood Christmas present, the Castle Greyskull my grandparents got him back in the 80s. I was so jealous, I always got Barbies instead of the He-Man and G.I. Joes my brother got, yes I was always a tomboy.

So my first set of charts this year are some of my childhood favorites: He-Man, She-Ra, The Power Sword, the Sorceress, Evil Lyn, and of course everyone’s favorite stinky villain Skeletor. I have them all in two pillow sizes in knit squares.

I also created a quick multiple choice survey for you to take so that I can better fulfill your stitching wishes this year. I promise you will all get an A+ if you take it!

Enjoy, and have a happy new year!

Pusheen and Friends  7

Hello stitchers! I use Facebook Messenger for a good portion of my puppy-sitting communication, mainly because most people can have it up on their desktops at work. I can send pics of their cuteness, or in some cases evidence of their puppy destruction. Then one day they added the “sticker” option and I fell in love with a cute little cat that reminds me of one of my kitty nieces, Miss Leo.
imageI can’t help it, Pusheen expresses all of life’s great emotions.

I went a little overboard and made a bunch of Pucheen, and Pucheen Friends charts for you to stitch. Full intarsia color as well as line work charts. They are all in (5×6) knit stitch, in 13x13inch pillow squares. If you are interested in a cross stitch pattern of one of these, let me know, there is a good chance I will chart it up.

As always please let me know what you want to chart, if you find any bad links, have any pics of your awesome creations, or pictures of your relatives passed out after too much holiday turkey.

Enjoy!

No Ugly Christmas Sweaters, Only Nerdy Ones  0

Hello stitchers! I know that ugly sweater parties are all the rage these days, but I’ve always like the “old lady” style fair isle sweaters. But what I have always wanted is a few nerdier versions.

I have been pondering the idea of nerdy fair isle for some time and finally decided to crank some out. You don’t have to use them on sweaters, you can make a scarf or even a dice bag if you want. They are all in knit stitch and my first real try at charting fair isle, so please be kind.

Please feel free to contact me here or on my new Facebook page The Hapeless Stitcher, to let me know what you would like to stitch, if you find a bad link, or you just want share your own creations.

Enjoy!

Yule Trees  0

Hello stitchers! I had a whirlwind trip to go visit family for Thanksgiving, and several other family events. One of these events was our annual gingerbread house making night. This year I thought ahead, although no one remembered to get me blue candy I got there early and took all blue before anyone could stop me.
I think she turned out ok.

Since it is officially Christmas season, I have brought you several versions of Yule trees. I have cross stitch and knit stitch squares so all of you can get into the spirit.

Enjoy!

Bob’s Burgers and Rivet  16

Hello Stitchers! I seem to have been on a roll lately and you can expect at least a couple more posts in the next few weeks, so you will have plenty to stitch this winter.

There is a cool local toy Gallery called Rivet, that I happen to walk by once or twice a month. They have some awesome chalk signs.
IMG_3348.JPG
There is a lovely lady named Laura who co-owns the place and Loves Bob’s Burgers, specifically Tina. As you can see on their Instagram account, she even likes cosplaying her from time to time.

IMG_3350.JPG
When Bob’s Burgers came out with a comic book Rivet even got a limited special run with their name on it, which you can read about here.

IMG_3351.JPG
So today I bring you a set of Bob’s Burgers, knit squares in pillow size. You can make pillows or sew them together to make a blanket, or even get crafty and sew up six of them, stuff them and make a little footstool. Go crazy.

*Since everyone seems to love  Bob’s Burgers, I decided to add cross stitch and Perler Bead charts as well!

Let me know How they turn out, I love watching my babies grow up. As always, I love hearing your requests, expressions of undying love, and if you find any corrupt links so I can fix them.

Enjoy!

-Molina

P.S.
Take this quick and pain free survey to let me know how you want to stitch in 2015.

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!
