Just a Quick S.H.I.E.L.D.

As I have been very busy with real life stuff, there hasn’t been a lot of time for crafting lately, but I did manage to make another badge!

The design is from one of my favourite TV shows, Agents of SHIELD, which is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.


You can see the original design to the right of the picture below, compared to the one I made.


There are a few small inconsistencies that I’m not entirely happy with, but I am happy with the way I achieved the thin strips of grey in the bottom left and right of my design. I had a bit of trouble with that, but I eventually decided to satin stitch the basic shape as one block, then divide it up with black straight stitches over the top.

Anyways, see ya!



Shades of Blue

Recently, this Book Depository bookmark came into my possession, and I originally wasn’t going to colour it in, but then I changed my mind.

The flowy lines reminded me of the sea, and then I had the idea of a selection of blues to look like the sea directly underneath the sky. The dark blue at the top is the sky, moving down to the waves (which is the white bits and pale blues) and then the deep sea at the bottom.

Anyways, see ya!


Seating Areas

Sadly, the foldable chairs that Sarah was hoping to get to match the dining table were gone from the op shop, but she did find these normal chairs instead that match quite well.



Sarah’s taken to having her morning hot drink sitting at the table, watching the garden life and the weather.


The chairs are also perfect to use as a set of hooks, apparently! (Sarah: Don’t question me!)




I love seeing the whole space laid out, it really looks like a home. I think the next details I want to add to this space will be more food. The list of items includes marshmallows, pasta, pizza and tubs of ice cream. Clearly, a very healthy selection!

Anyways, see ya!


New Books

So I might have bought more books recently, oops!


I bought Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda a few days after watching the movie on DVD, and both the book and the movie are so good!


I originally went to the bookstore just to get Ship of the Dead, I had no idea that 9 from the Nine Worlds even existed before seeing it on the shelves. Obviously, it had to come home with me.


They both now sit on my shelves…



…looking beautiful as always. I’ve been waiting for this edition of Ship of the Dead for ages, so I am very happy to finally complete my Magnus Chase series.

Anyways, see ya!


Great Finds

While Sarah was browsing second-hand stores, she found this lovely old dining table for her apartment.


It has a simple locking mechanism to keep the legs in place because it folds (pretty) flat if it needs to be stored somewhere.



There were matching chairs there too, which she’s going to go back and get as she couldn’t carry them all at once.


It’s a great find, and should be really useful for eating or for projects where she needs to spread out a lot. Sarah loves the colour of the wood, and I really like the folding legs – you don’t often see that on a dining table.

Anyways, see ya!
