Just when I think I can't get any more nerdy...awhile back, I did a swap (I've since forgotten the theme) where I embroidered a hoop of  Bo and Daisy Duke for my partner. I got to thinking that I should do something like that for myself, so I give you...Kit Fisto!!

I found Kit's image by searching Yahoo for Star Wars coloring pages. The fabric is some muslin type that I got from AC Moore, along with the embroidery thread.

I used my front door's glass as a projector on a sunny day, taped the picture and the fabric up to it, and traced the image on with a pencil. It's roughly 8.5" x 10".

I love Kit because I thought he was such an interesting character. visually speaking.
My next planned embroidery project will be of William Shatner as Captain Kirk. I think once I get enough of these, I might have to turn them into a blanket of some kind.

aimr, your fingerprint sheep cards are so cute! I don't see black paper backgrounds that much, and it really makes them pop.

My thing for the 3rd is a dinner that my partner requested - creamy broccoli soup and grilled cheese with avocado. Delicious! Here's the soup recipe - I added a few cups of stock to thin it out because it was super thick.

I've been having fun with Swoon patterns Cheesy  I made the Blanche 4 times already (2 for me, 2 for others).  I decided to get the Glenda next, as a friend wanted a similar style and this saved me time of drafting my own.

I used to do a lot more crafting and trading on here when I was younger, but then depression and college stole away a lot of my creativity. Slowly but surely I'm starting to get back into the scene as it were. These are a few of my first ATCs in a long while. They're all extremely simple (mostly because I was doing them during my downtime at work, so I didn't have any special collage supplies at hand) but I'm still really pleased with them.

(The Shakespeare quotation was what made me want to make ATCs again. I really liked it and wanted to do something with it other than, you know, re-post it online somewhere. I'm so so proud of the wood grain on the frame.)

(A...sorta-misquoted Hozier lyric--in my defense, the guy is really hard to understand sometimes, and my version still makes sense!--and an extreme close-up of an owl face that kind of looks like a teddy bear face. Oops!)

The following ATCs were made for the ongoing January ATC swap, so, uh...if you're rockingbearranch or DearBluebird, don't look if you don't like spoilers?

An Anna Atkins tribute ATC for rockingbearranch and a geometric design card for DearBlueBird. I'd never tried either of these methods/styles, so that was fun! Smiley

Thing #3:

I was suppose to make this blanket for a friend's granddaughter last year...I ran out of yarn and just put it away...well, I decided that if I made it a little bigger, it could be for her first birthday coming up next month...so here is my one thing today and probably for the next couple of days...sad, but I only had six more squares to go and had no motivation until this craftalong! I will probably need to add another 6 squares.... WIPS BE GONE!!! Grin

The picture is the finished pile, the six to go, and the one I finished just a few minutes ago...

January's hoops were all fantastic! Congrats Treemoon and happy birthday!

So, I am planning on making more hoops for myself and my kiddo this year, so I'm going to join in with you if that's ok Smiley

Here's my entry for Feb - I love my daughter and how goofy she is!

Embroidery/cross stitch of my daughter in her big scarf:

Backstory:I spend way too much time looking through pinterest for crafty inspiration and way too little time actually crafting.  However, sometimes "pinspiration" happens at just the right time for actual craft motivation!

So, I found these fantastic needlework/illustration pieces by Izziyana Suhaimi (blog post: http://elblogdedmc.blogspot.com/2012/01/izziyana-suhaimi-ilustraciones-con.html) and in particular, this one:

So, pinned for future reference...

Not 3 days later, my mom emails me this picture of my daughter from Christmas

Random coincidence or fate?  Either way, it must be made!

I outlined the main parts of the photo with sharpie.  Then I traced the scarf part onto 14 count Aida and cross stitched the scarf.  I was going to use one of those cross stitch chart programs, but then I decided to just wing it.  Once the scarf was done, I cut it out and put some glue around the edges from the back to prevent fraying.  Then I traced the rest of the picture onto plain fabric and just used straight stitches for the outline.  Glasses are of black felt.  Tacked the glasses in place then tacked on the scarf.

I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out Smiley

dewshinesdopp: OMG it's Abby! I love it! The little hint of purplely-pink on Jack, is that marker? Color pencil? I love the little hint of color!

So I thought it would be cool to do a medics/feel better/get well zombie box to send the boy and of course I then thought of sending some food too. Enter Fallout. Now idk at all before doing my care package but they have a huge post apocalyptic foods. Of course I just had to go through the list, see what I can actually send him and then went and printed out the labels for it. I'm not done, but I'm too excited about it I had to share  Cheesy

I ran my nail file against the labels to give it a more worn look then rubbed cinnamon to make it look rusty

Hurrah! I sent yesterday. But it's going from the US to the UK and they said it would take about a week.

Woo hoo! We have a sender Cheesy
