Tolkien’s Words

Not all who wander are lost

This delightful embroidery was created by Aerynkellye, who runs the shop Sweet E’s on Etsy.  Her shop has many delightful embroidered wall hangings, including a zombie pin-up girl.  This one was my particular favorite.  “Not all who wander are lost,” has been one of my favorite Tolkien quotes since I first read the Lord of the Rings back in 2001.  What I love about this embroidery piece is how the letters are reminiscent of the forest, they go from jagged to flowing lines almost like the branches and leaves of a tree.

 

“All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost.  From ashes a fire shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring; renewed shall be blade that was broken, the crownless again shall be king.”  – J.R.R. Tolkien

Star Wars mini Amigurumi

May the Fourth be with you! Over at flickr, Angry Angel posted the coolest Chewbacca amigurumi! It looks felted, doesn’t it? I can’t believe that it’s just brushed yarn. Angry Angel made the pattern for her etsy shop, but Chewy isn’t the only Star Wars amigurumi pattern available: she actually has twelve of the characters!

Atari Freezer Paper Shirt

Atari-stenciled-shirtI have recently declared myself the Atari clothing and accessory expert on Geek Crafts, after having my essay on the above published in World Of Geekcraft by our own Susan Beal. That being true, I had to feature this Atari Freezer Paper Shirt made by Lucinda879 on Craftster. This was her first try, and it came out perfect, in my expert opinion.
