This Mage needs a dose of cute today, and since my kitten insists on being asleep and not fun at all, I turn to the internet! I found these lovely plushies and because cute must be shared, here they are!
Super cute! They’re made by BubbleRhapsodyDesign on Etsy and are designed for stacking in little heaps of adorableness. I like the Vulpix, but I think my favourite is Ninetales. I’d like to see some other stackable ‘mon too!

Stitchmond is definitely one of my favourite stitchers. He’s been producing some awesome work recently, and these three mashup pieces are his latest offerings.
Here we have “Son of Miyamoto” inspired by Magritte, “Marilyn Montoad” inspired by Warhol and “Composition with Red, P Block and Coin” inspired by Mondrian. The patterns for these pieces are on sale in Stitchmond’s Etsy shop – they are in a pack of PDFs that also contain works inspired by Lichtenstein, Da Vinci and Vancouver street artist iHeart.

Jen from Epbot (and Cake Wrecks) made a cute holster bag, in the shape of a Hylian Shield.
This one is made with Friendlyfelt, some straps, clips and a zip. Jen didn’t write a tutorial for the bag, but she describes the process well enough that anyone could give it a try!

Our very own blackberrybear from the forums crocheted this stunning blanket!
The colours of the mask really pop on that black background. Awesome!

Apparently, it’s more Mario!
Reddit user down_the_hatch stitched up this awesome silhouette for a Mario-obsessed nephew.
UPDATE: It was brought to my attention that the person selling the pattern for this stitching did not have permission from the original designer. On behalf of Sprite Stitch, I would like to take this opportunity to apologise to Jake Bacuetes of Pixel Bit Hero and ask that people do not support the Etsy store previously mentioned in this post.

I recently discovered a deviantARTist by the name of DarkeVitrum. He creates some wonderful things in stained glass, but these lamps really stood out.
DarkeVitrum also has an Etsy shop and Facebook page for anyone that’s interested in his work!
