I can’t believe I have started this project 3 months ago already (11 weeks without counting Christmas)! I feel like I’ve been very slack with it but I guess it’s just because it is quite large and I have plenty going on at the same time. I have finished Gengar and Heracross and I’ve stitched the outlines of Inkay and Joltik.
Maybe I will manage to catch up in the next few weeks?
In the mean time I wish you all a great weekend and happy crafting!
The poké-alphabet didn’t get much love this past month. But I’ll be working on it more now that the holidays are over.
Gengar is getting some colours!
Also, I probably lied when I said I would finish my boots by the end of the week 😁 I didn’t realise how long the legs actually take to make!
That’s what I got so far and it’s not even half of the first cuff. Getting back to knitting has been tough!
That’s it for tonight, I need to catch up on some sleep from yesterday 😉
I’ve been so slow with this project lately, I might just put it on hold until Christmas. I have decided to cross stitch lots of bookmarks for my family because they are small and they will fit in the cards I’m sending over, so I’m probably going to be busy with that over the next few weeks.
I’ve also been making my own cards, so far I’ve used cool paper cutters and glitters. Hopefully I finish then over the weekend, with some pics for you on Monday 🙂
Anyways, here is F for Fennekin all in colours and also Gengar (but just the outline)
This weekend we are going to Supanova (pretty much the Aussie comic con) and I’ll try to remember to take pics of all the amazing costumes.
Have a great weekend guys!
That’s it! Gengar is finished and k dissolved the canvas. I was slightly worried about it but it just worked perfect and now I have an awesome shirt that no one else can have 😁
Hope you’re having a lovely weekend!
Today I’m working from home on my computer and that’s great because the weather is really bad! I realised that it is already Thursday and I haven’t posted anything this week, how rude of me! I’ve been crazy busy with my PhD confirmation coming up, and preparing for my trip up the Great Barrier.
I got some great new containers to organise my threads for embroidery and cross stitching, $2.8 at Daiso (it’s a very cool Japanese shop, where most stuff costs $2.8!).
I also made huge progress on Gengar, he should be finished soon 🙂 I’m a bit worried about removing the grid, I hope the shirt turns out good.
And I finally got more yarn to continue my picnic throw, I’ve got 2 squares not (going for 4 total). Do you think I should add a border and if yes what kind of border would you suggest?
What a week! Is it just me or is time just going too fast?
This week I’ve given a go to polymer clay, because I’ve been really inspired by all the amazing work showcased on the app “Crafty amino”. It’s an app for all crafts, there are a few very good fellow yarn addicts but most of it is clay.
Although a lot of people on there seem to be pretty young and there are a few of completely unrelated posts, admins are doing a good job with their “featured” page and there are some really talented crafters out there.
So here it goes, I made little fruity charms out of stretchy clay (not the best but I already had some at home). They make me think a little of “Cloudy with a chance of meatballs”.

I’ve also made some good progress on my Gengar cross stitch, I find it very relaxing at night in front of the TV!
What cool projects have you been working on this week?
It is the first of September, which means winter is officially over. Yay! I’ve got a few exciting things planned for this month, I am going on the Great BarrierReef and it is my birthday on the 21st. I’m also going to go dress shopping for my wedding next year (that should be fun!) and I have plenty of craft projects I’d like to do.
I am currently testing out cross stitch on clothes, because one of my friends’s birthday in October. She loves Pokemon (so do I) so I’ll cross stitch her favourite Pokemon on a shirt for her. I’m currently doing Gengar on a tank top (getting ready for summer!)
On another note, I’m enrolled in this massive open online course on edX on superheroes (nothing to do with my PhD on fish immunology but I love superheroes so I HAD to do this!) it’s really fun and it’s great for creativity as we have to create our own super hero! Here is a little preview of the introduction of my hero black raptor.
I know it’s a bit cheesy but I had fun drawing that! So I might be posting some more pictures of my “comic” later on as the course continues.
Have a lovely week everyone!
