“I Love Lucy”

The last time I made little baseball bat-wielding critters I posted a “teaser” photo of two painted baseball bats, inviting everyone to guess who they’d be for.

The ones that I posted were for making little Harley Quinn, but there was another guess who was a frontrunner:

“Well hello sweetheart.”

Negan was a popular guess for a baseball bat-carrying character, and once a friend asked for one as well, I thought I’d give it a whirl. One of my stupider ideas was putting actual barbs on Negan’s beloved Lucille. When I initially wrapped the wire around the little bat it just didn’t look right. I twisted up some barbs to add to the bat, and ended up making an ACTUAL hazardous item. Given it’s more like getting stuck by a loose staple than actually being beaten by a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire (thank goodness), but still, I’ve already given my friend a hefty warning to be careful with this little dude.

Oh. Oh no. Oh no oh no. Now you’re REALLY going to late for that board meeting. It’s okay business zombie, everyone else is going to be late too. REALLY late. You’re still the best undead employee ever.

On a side note, making little Negan made me realize a little Bob’s Burger set might have to be added to my ever-growing “to-crochet” list! I’m sure Negan could probably make a killer burger. His secret technique? He’s got one hell of a meat tenderizer in his hands. Lucy’s Post-Apocalyptic Burgers, anyone?

Hi! I’m not dead! Just uber-busy. Turns out they weren’t kidding when they say planning a wedding is practically a full time job in itself. Throw in the fact that I’m a stubborn DIY type and I end up creating a LOT more work for myself than necessary. I really need to learn when to put down the hot glue gun.

Otherwise, life’s been good and I’ve been trying to make some new critters. Key word being “trying.” The short ‘n chubby limbless look has been working out pretty well for me so far, but I kind of want to change things up and add limbs to my critters. The only thing is that I’m picky about how they look, so the trial and error is going to be a long process. Because dammit, sometimes my critters need arms and legs! They’ve been limbless for too long. Otherwise, how’s life for all you geeks out there?

He lives in the shadows. He is the dark knight.

And he’s the hero we deserve. But not the one we need right now…

…because he kind of has a problem keeping track of his limbs.

Poor business zombie. Yet another Halloween mishap.

Maybe next year, my undead little friend.

But hey, missing a limb has never stopped this guy from making SUPER awesome costumes year after year:

DAT LEG LAMP. Have a happy and safe Halloween tonight, everyone!


Chewie: “Hrrr.”

Translation: “My bad.”

Well…that’s a friendly handshake gone wrong. A little less force next time, Chewie. 🙂

The winter holidays are around the corner, so posts might be slower than usual while I try to whip up some Christmas gifts on time for myself and at the behest of other friends. ‘Tis the season for hookin’, y’all! To my other hookers out there: what are you hooking for the holidays this year?


Ah, Halloween. When you’re a kid, you get to dress up and get free candy. When you’re an adult, you get to go to fun costume parties. I freaking LOVE Halloween. Unfortunately it looks like the same can’t be said for poor lil’ business zombie:

Well…that’s not going to work.

His attempt to go trick-or-treating as a dapper musketeer is getting off to a rough start. And can anyone explain why the three MUSKETeers are always shown with swords?? Anyway, everyone have a fun and safe Halloween! 🙂

“Oh, THERE it is…”

First off, WALKING DEAD IS BACK!! Admittedly I thought the season premiere started off a bit slow, but it looks like it’s going to be one hell of a season. Oof. At any rate, last year when the Walking Dead returned to TV, I released a horde of zombies, one of which was this poor lil’ business zombie who was missing an arm.

Well, the good news for this little dude is that a year later, HE FOUND HIS ARM.

…and he’s giving a whole new meaning to the term “dropped call.”

I wouldn’t worry too much about the call. I don’t think he realizes that his client hung up ages ago when they couldn’t understand his garbled grunts peppered with the occasional “BRAAAAINS.” Anyway, I don’t have a whole lot of  faith in him keeping up with that arm, so he’ll probably be running into more mishaps with that thing sooner or later. 😛
