I've been invited to a party with the theme "Holidaze in Spacetime" and immediately thought of doing a Christmas-themed Tom Baker scarf, using the half-scale patterns from Illuminated Spaces. A Season 18 scarf lends itself nicely to a red/white/green palette, having only three colors to begin with, but I'm not sure it would be as immediately recognizable for what it's meant to be. I tried converting the Season 12 scarf to a five color palette (red/white/green/silver/gold), but I'm not as happy with it.

My options as I see it:

  1. Make the S18 pattern and hope it's more obvious than I think.
  2. Add two more colors to the S12 pattern.


Thoughts? Recommendations for what colors to add if I go with Option 2?

It's that time of year again! Yes, time to show off my horse's K9 costume from 2005. His name is Shada.

My daughter K went to her first convention this summer.  She wanted to be Clara in the Journey to the Center of the Tardis.  Not an easy dress to find. So we decided to make one.

As a huge Doctor Who Fan, my daughter had to have a TARDIS themed Prom dress.....so she made one! Embelishment on the side bow is written in Circular Gallifreyan.....what else would it say? ALLONS Y! Even her garter (not pictured) had a TARDIS charm dangling from it! She has never taken any kind of fashion or sewing classes- learned how to sew from her Mum (me) and Youtubel! The crystals on the skirt represent the many stars in the Universe. Even the shoes (she decorated to wear once her feet started to hurt in her heels) have a "Universal" theme!

If you live in the US you know that Father's Day is coming up in a week or two. My dad and I are both big fans of Doctor Who. As Doctor Who fans know, there is a pretty great episode of Doctor Who called "Father's Day," so I was thinking this year of doing a Doctor Who themed Father's Day party for my dad. (Geeky, I know.) I am trying to come up with Doctor Who themed decorations and snacks. I found these cute and delicious looking Doctor Who blue velvet cupcakes on Pinterest and am definitely going to make these!

dieastra suggested to post this here, also.

Christian, a friend of mine, is a LARPer and some time ago started to working with leather, creating belts and pouches and the like. Last year, I saw a picture of a pretty handbag where he had dyed the leather a beautiful blue. A Tardis blue.

And so I asked him if he could custom-made me a Tardis bag. And he did. The day before yesterday, I got this



More details of this awesome bagCollapse )

Here's my second entry of the day. I only met Elizabeth Sladen once and that was a charity event at the Royal Liverpool Philarmonic Hall several years ago. A lovely, lovely woman who is sadly missed by all.

TARDIS/Doctor quotes cross stitchCollapse )

So I found this a couple of days ago. I started this in 2012. There is a quote from all the Doctors, except the 12th, when he says something, I will add his quote. Even the War Doctor has a quote.

I was going to ask if anyone wanted it, but today when I was cross stitching in the daylight, I noticed that the 7th Doctor's quote is in 2 different colors(plus I left out some words out of his quote. I have no idea why).

So I thought I'd show it off.

So, I finally dug out an old unfinished project -- the Tam of Rassilon -- and finished it in a couple of days. It seems I got a tad better at knitting since I started on it, a few years back. :)



Since I found the pattern via this comm once upon a time, it seems only fitting to post the finished result here. The sharp-eyed viewer will notice that I switched the light and dark colours, since I used the dark as the main colour. I also gave the celtic knot motif a miss, so that's why you're not seeing any pics of the underside -- all that's there is a couple of stripes.
The graphite black yarn is Schachenmayr Alpaka, and the variegated yarn is something expensive with wool and silk in it. I've lost the wrappers/tags, unfortunately, but both yarns are silky soft to the touch.
