The lights at the end of the road

Almost quite literally this time!

I don’t know if you have that at home, but in Australia, some people have mad skills at decorating their homes for Christmas. Tonight we went to see the runner up and the winner of our area for best light display and it was quite amazing! 

  
I’m afraid that the pics don’t really do the lights any justice, it was truly magical!

And I have finished my Christmas presents at last!

   
 
Bulbasaur is ready to be gifted on Saturday! 

  
And this is part of my secret Santa, for a fishing lover 🙂

Hope you guys are finished or almost there with all your amazing gifts!

Almost theeeere!

Happy Monday everyone! Only a few days left before some well deserved holidays! Yay! 

I’ve been working on the bulbasaur plush and I’m glad to say it is almost finished 🙂 and it looks pretty good!   

    

I really hope that my friend likes it 🙂 also I’ve designed the pattern using bits and pieces so I’ll put together a pdf and make it available to you guys in case you want to make your very own bulbasaur 😉

I haven’t done much crochet lately but I have in mind to finally finish my winter themed afghan. I’m using a motif found in “The knitting and crochet bible” and I’m alternating colours between white, pale blue and grey. I don’t have a pic to show you right now (I’m in bed and too lazy to go take one) but I’ll put one up on Wednesday 😊

Sooo I know I’m addicted but I made another cross stitched bookmark. This time though I added a back to it to hide the “wrong” side.  

  
  
What do you guys think of it? The design is inspired from Thumbelina (I was obsessed with this cartoon when I was younger). 

Wishing you all a great week 

Lots of love

P.S. Who is excited for Star Wars? I know I am! Just booked our tickets today, I just can’t wait!!!!

Poké-alphabet week 8

And another very full week is over! I’ve literally started to day dream about holidays. I’m just so happy we are getting 2 full weeks off from the PhD madness. I found some time this week to continue on my poké-alphabet (or at least, the outline). 

 
I also just finished to sew bulbasaur’s body. Now onto the bulb!

 
And tomorrow, Christmas shopping! Yay! I feel like a little kid in a candy store!

A very very happy weekend to y’all!

Christmas wips

Ohohoh! Christmas is around the corner and I just can’t wait!!! I’ve realised that although my family’s presents are done, I still need to get going for my friends! 

   I only have the head so far but this will be a bulbasaur plush for my friend (I already made her a bulbasaur cross stitch for her birthday). She really liked the umbreon one I’ve made for myself and I thought this would be a good surprise 🙂

I’ve also been working on some cross stitch pattern for thumbelina (one of my all time favourite childhood animated movie).   

  
It looks weird at the moment because they have no hair! I’ll be aiming to have a pattern for each of her outfit in the movie (she has a few!) and I might add a quote and some of her friends (Jacquimo anyone?)

That’s it folks!

Hope you are all on track for your Christmas gifts! Only 2ish weeks to go!

Models, de-stash and Poké-alphabet week 2 

TGIF!

This week was pretty rough but I managed to make it through. I spent most of the week frantically painting for my Armies of Parade exhibition tomorrow. I’m pleased to say I finished my board and the models I planned on displaying.  

  

I also got s’more of Mr. Jelly’s tentacles done, so the de-stash is going well 😊  there is a lot of blue on this side but I’m trying to add in some more oranges and reds.


And finally, I have finished A for Alakazam and I am now stitching B for Bulbasaur.

 I hope tomorrow’s exhibit goes well and I wish you all an amazing weekend!

Week off and new goals

Hi guys!

You are probably wondering where week 9 is for my Mystery Afghan CAL. Well, I took a break this week.With the field trip I didn’t really get time to have any crochet done and I also have to finish the birthday present for my friend (her birthday was yesterday and we are celebrating today!).

 Little bulbasaur is all finished and ready for his new home! I also attached a string a the top so the necklace/bag hanger is complete!

I have also completed my first MOOC on the rise of superheroes from the Smithsonian, I will post my drawings in here later. Some of the art/stories submitted by the other participants were pretty amazing!

I was happy I pulled through and did all the assignments in time, so I decided to challenge myself a bit more, so I am now enrolled to the Think. Create. Code.  course from  university of Adelaide. You have probably guessed it, it’s a programming course and it is mainly focused on digital art creation.

Here are a few screenshots of what I have coded so far for the course.

Also, because we have entered the last quarter of the year, I have decided to make a list of what I want to achieve for the end of the year:

CRAFTS

• Finish my CAL (should be done in 2 weeks – posts on Friday).

• Find another WIP to post every Friday when the CAL is completed (already have a few ideas!).

•  Post regular updates of my Edx programming course (Mondays).

• Craft Christmas presents and cute decorations for our first Christmas in our house (we went to my parents’ last year).

PERSONAL

• Prepare my itinerary for Europe next July.

• Finish preparations for my wedding next year.

• Go to the gym at least twice a week (my aqua gym classes have been cancelled, so I need to find something else I like to do).

WORK

• Finish writing my second paper for my PhD.

• Keep my LinkedIn and ResearchGate profiles up to date.

What do you have planned for the end of 2015?

Present underway! 

Hello lovelies!

It is almost October already, which means another birthday! This one is for my friend who’s fan of Pokemon. So I’m making her a cross stitch pendant of her fav Pokemon!  

So first I looked for a good pattern on Pinterest and I found one that was small enough to put on a necklace. 

Then I had to find an actual ring on which to put my canvas. I was looking for one of those tiny wooden canvas holders but I was out of luck and only found metal rings. So I ended up just sawing my piece of canvas on the ring with white thread. I’m surprised how well it worked!

 

I really like the look of it, so now I might have to do a few for myself! Maybe I’ll go for Ghasly, to go with my Gengar shirt. 

Do you have a signature birthday present that you like to make for you friends and family?
