Sunday Roundup! April and May ’14

Sunday, July 13th, 2014

The challenge for the months of April and May was themed “Dragons.” As blackmageheart explained, “Dragons are awesome. I will happily befriend, murder, eat and ride dragons all day long (although not necessarily in that order or at the same time.) There’s so many different varieties of dragon and related creatures that I’m sure there will be something for everyone. You can make any kind of dragon in any style and situation. Since you have until the end of May, you can make big ones or lots of small ones, whatever you like!”

And so, shall we see who won this noble challenge?

Miss Clawful took first place with this amazing stitch from The Immortal.

In joint second place were celebriwen with her Dragon and Knight papercutting:

and no_need with her Toothless plush:

And in joint third place are lcockitt with her Hidden Dragon:

and BeadedImagination’s Yoshi Evolutions:

The entries were all amazing, so check out the link to see them all!

Next Sunday I’ll post the results from June’s challenge, Three Colours.

Portal Couples Rings

Sunday, July 6th, 2014

I’m more of a pendant kind of Mage, but I really like these acrylic rings by Nastalgame on Etsy.

Cute and clever. And also quite inexpensive!

Rapidash Sculpture

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

I love horses and most especially fantasy horses. Rapidash has always been a favourite Pokemon of mine so when I stumbled across this gorgeous sculpture on my Etsy feed, I had to share it on Sprite Stitch.

The artist, Evgeny Hontor, also has other Pokemon in their Etsy shop. They’re all rather unusual but are nice – check out the shop!

Friday, July 4th, 2014

Donna M Evans has always made amazing plushes (particularly her Zelda creations) but this new heart piece plush from Twilight Princess is just beautiful!

You can see more of Donna’s work at her deviantART page, Etsy shop and of course on the Sprite Stitch forums!

Mushroom Scrabble Tile Art

Saturday, June 21st, 2014

I’ve seen things done with Scrabble tiles before, mostly names and words (obviously – it is Scrabble!)  but this one by TileFrame is pretty good!

The coloured tiles are great for this kind of art. If you look closely, you’ll see Mario-related words hidden in the mushroom!
