Hit a similar wall myself with my knitting...no fun at all! So, it's a good thing that we have our other crafts :P

Love your pokemon and your magnets...very colorful!

So I have been somewhat neglecting crafts in general over the last few months. This was due to a combination of things like moving house, being down in the dumps about not having a job followed by working like crazy when I got a christmas retail casual job (not what I want to be doing but money is money), illness and christmas in general.

When I have been working on things, it has been on the larger WIPs I have going, so that I can finally get them done. Partly because its time I finish them and partly I want the colours back in my general stash for new projects :P

The end is in sight :D Several of the pokemon are now complete, and Charmelion is the main part of the remaining work. Time to start keeping an eye out for frames I guess, and figuring all those details out.

I've been caught up with the real world a lot lately. I found a new job which has left me with a lot less time and energy than I was used to having, but I have still been able to get some crafting done. On the plus we just bought a new car :D It's so nice to be able to go places without worrying the car will break down before you get home again.

There is a Suitecase Rummage mini-market which turns up every 6 months or so here - I am hoping to have enough made to try my hand at selling things at the next one :)

Fire Pokemon are finally finished :pika Still need to wash, iron and find a frame for them

I've also been working on a kit cat which turned up in a pile of random craft supplies I was given. My family know I craft, so they have a habit of picking up things in second hand shops/garage sales which they think I might be interested it :) I work on this one in fits and starts, its a lot of very similar browns. I've also decided to fill in the white squares, as I think it looks better that way.

I pick up little patterns here and there when I get tired of my main WIPs, and I ended up with a decent amount of blue aida (was on sale), so I've been looking for lots of little projects on blue. And the Stormtrooper Sugar Skull I just loved. I'm considering making it a set with some other Star Wars sugar patterns

I love the Stormtrooper! Any chance you could share the pattern and any other Star Wars sugar skulls you might do in the future?

Where did you find the sugar skull Stormtrooper? Did you make the pattern yourself? That is so awesome!

And I love the Fire Pokemon collection - first generation... yay! It makes me want to start working on my Pokemon cross stitch.

I found the pattern online a while ago. Looking for it now (reverse image search) it is credited to http://craftsome.blogspot.com.au/ but the original post doesn't seem to still be there.

Pattern:

Love the finished fire pokemon stitch! And the sugar skull storm trooper... may have to give that one a go sometime. I also really like the koi in the pond on the blue, very serene
