Ah, robots! How can you not love them? R2D2 is a lifelong favorite for one of my robo-obsessed friends so I just knew I had to whip up this little droid just for her.
But just having R2 wasn’t enough; I felt like it needed something more…and then I realized: I met this friend on the Internet. Let’s add some Internet humor (and some mildly NSFW language) in there!
Yes, R2. Yes, they do.
I can’t wait to ship this little guy out to her! And maybe I’ll whip up a couple more since they were so quick and easy! I’ve got this pattern for sale on my etsy shop here if you want to stitch one up yourself!
The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my all-time favorite movies. I could watch it every day for a week and still be happily singing along with it.
I’ve already posted about my first Jack stitching (and hand-painted frame!) here. Someday soon I’ll get around to stitching up a matching Sally for my Jack, especially after completing this commission. The red background turned out so wonderful, I wish I’d done the background for my Jack in red, too! 80 hours of stitching has never felt so satisfying :-)
You can buy Jack and Sally patterns so you can stitch them up yourself, too! And I’m always available for customized commissions!
…it just keeps getting in the way!
Moving is even more stressful right now so it’s been difficult to keep up with my blog, and for that I apologize.
I’ve still been thinking craftily (this is now officially a word!) and brainstorming but I’m not getting nearly enough time to write out blog posts that I can be satisfied with, and I hate writing up inferior posts! Please keep in mind that I update my Twitter and Facebook as often as possible with work-in-progress and completed projects that I just haven’t gotten around to blogging about yet and I love followers :-)
I would like to share a site I found with a very cool cross stitch pattern. A Stitch in Time has a 20-sided die pattern for only $1! It’s 13×15 and I’ve already got a project plan in mind for this little guy! She has a TARDIS/Dr Who pattern on that page for FREE all the way down at the bottom, too, as well as free Batman and USS Enterprise patterns!
As a happy side-note, I’ve finally got REAL business cards! I can’t wait to get some orders in so that I can hand these things out like candy :-)
I have a friend who really likes wolves, so I decided to make him a special framed cross stitch of his favorite animal!
And, I’ve decided to share the pattern with all of you! I just used all generic colors for this project.

I finally got my Serenity Prayer cross stitch pattern up for sale. Check it out here!
I’ve decided that Etsy is probably a better choice for selling stuff than having my own website right now so I’ve been posting some of my patterns on my Etsy. Keep an eye out for even more patterns (and some jewelry!) for sale!
I’ve been wanting to make a Sally cross stitch pattern ever since I first stitched up my Jack Skellington back in 2009. Now I finally finished the Sally pattern! On sale here for only $5, get it along with Jack Skellington to make a great pair of stitchings!
