Oliver Queen Arrow Plushie and a crown

I've been making things that I can't show you yet annoyingly, so although I was going to save this guy until the Arrow premiere I decided not to.

Oliver Queen!  Not sure why I made him look sad.
 Two things I am very happy about: his general body shape and his eyes. Look, I finally worked out how to do eyes! Two things I am less happy with: his hood which should have peaked upwards at the top and his mask. I was considering doing the mask the same way as the eyes but it has a smudged on look in the series so I thought using a marker would work. It just looks messy. Still... look at the eyes!



 Also, for anyone who didn't see it - I made a conker crown!

Castiel watches the bees (Supernatural embroidery)

Any Supernatural fans out there? I am now a third of the way through season 9 so hopefully I will be less obsessed once I am done. Until then... I was trying to decide between doing a 'freaking pie better be worth it' and a 'I've got a GED and a can-do attitude.' But instead, I did this little chibi Castiel. I based it on a picture I found on the internet but I couldn't find a source for it - sorry.

 Not sure I am totally happy with his eyes. I nailed the trench coat though, right?

I'm gonna need a bigger window. There's another 6 sitting on the floor. Anyone want an embroidery hoop?!

Breaking Bad and Supernatural papercraft

These barely belong on my blog because I made them only in the sense of cutting out and glueing someone else's artistic offerings. But they are so damned cute! Firstly, we have the Breaking Bad crew. Sadly no Saul though.
 Look at his adorable little wheelchair and those slippers!
 If you turn Gus around you get the Gus-minator!

 The templates for the Breaking Bad guys are freely available from this website. Go check it out, the guy is awesome and has loads of templates for all sorts of fandoms. These were really easy to put together, all you need is a printer, a pair of scissors and some PVA glue. Slightly more difficult (but still pretty straight forward) were these Supernatural papercrafts. And aren't they just the cutest things ever? The templates if you want to give it a go, are here.


So, here's my secret shame - I am a Destiel shipper!



Here's a little Bobby, and look, Dean and Sam are holding hands! they are best buds. Look at Sam's massive forehead!

On another note, my phone camera takes really tall photos

Spike is English embroidery

That double whammy of Once More with Feeling followed straight off with Tabula Rasa - wow, you can't beat it, can you? (Unless it is with Our Mrs Reynolds followed by Jaynestown)

I really should stop making embroideries, but... it was raining over the weekend so I needed something to do with my hands to justify a mammoth Supernatural session.

Plus this one makes me giggle.
