The Christmas Comic Sulphur Edition

I have been a big fan of the printed word since my older brother bought a book home from our local primary school. My wonderful Uncle Geoff introduced me to comics not long after and my primary school teacher completed my initiation by reading Shakespeare out loud in class. It wasn’t long before I was having lengthy and exciting conversations with my local librarians and I suppose looking back, I had a lot in common with Matilda although not a genius but undeniably bright and with an inextinguishable  passion for life.

 Today I present to you Sulphur. A one of a kind piece of artwork by Evil Squirrel.He is having this fun giveaway for the first lucky 20 entrants. Thank you ES, I love my Sulphur and it will hang in my recently renovated studio and I will enjoy it every day! Photos will follow when completed.

Comics dating back to oldest (1947) to present day Deadpool Japan 2014. Also Tango a homegrown comic from Cardigan Comics and one of my faves, Hamlet by Nicki Greenwood. Now it is back to meeting my self imposed Christmas deadline amigurumis but please check back for a very special New Years Eve invitation in two days time. Meanwhile Enjoy a close up of Sulphur!

pulling together

Our market was a complete success.  People turned out in large numbers to support “creating a welcome” and artists and creators of all kinds donated beautiful goods for us to sell. It was held at beautiful Chalice and on a personal note my foxes sold out before I even got them properly set up. One fox was sold twice and another was chewed by my friends dog while I was having a cup of tea but nothing some yarn and a crochet hook couldn’t fix! We have this little movie of the day and we raised over 5 thousand dollars!gentlestitches amigurumi fox

 

 

pull together everyone.

This is my Australia…please all enjoy our beauty and focus on peace

gentlestitches:

The people urge the media to act in a responsible manner while we make sense of what happened at Martin Place . We must stand together and not let it tear us apart. We are all affected but for those directly affected all of Australia loves and supports you.

A Nativity set by “youngatfifty”

My friend made this beautiful nativity set. Her webpage is youngatfifty. Please click on her link for the full post. A new nativity scene with a crocheted stable among other things christmassy. She did this one last year.  These men took a lot of time to finish …so many hands, capes, hats, heads, beards, eyes, to crochet and assemble…phew ! My favourite are the three kings. So which do you like ? 2013 nativity or this one below ?
