I'm surprised that someone doesn't already make a Dancing Men stamp set. (Although I never checked - perhaps they do!) It seems such an obvious thing. They were a lot of fun to carve.

The images on the bookmarks are from the original Strand Magazine illustrations, though they're not all by Sidney Paget. (He was one of only several artists who worked on the series, but it was his image of Holmes that stuck. Deerstalker cap and all.)

The magnifier/paperweight was my first real attempt at inlaid polymer clay, and it was quite a bit trickier than I'd expected. So Holmes looks a bit the Arrow Shirt man of the 1930's, but the pipe helps make him recognizable!

Are there really mermaids in Florida?

Monnie, I have a friend whose life has literally been turned around by bellydancing; she's been dealing with weight issues, and mental and physical health problems, most of her life and in the four years she's been dancing she's become almost a different person. I hope it does as much for you!

Okay, everyone's sent (thank you all!) and packages have started to arrive. Yay!

I'll try to get your status updated as packages arrive, but if you know your partner has received and you don't have positive feedback by the next day, please remind me.

Ohhhh, this is so tempting, but I just can't. Not because I don't have time for another swap (there's always time for another swap), but because I don't have anyplace to put the item I would receive! I know this because I've been re-arranging our basement for weeks to try to squeeze out a bit more room. And having very limited results!

WAH~!! My large had serious drama on sendout day! I worked so hard to fix the mechanism that broke, but I didn't get it done before the post office closed! It's in the mail today, at least, but still a day late. v_v;; I didn't quite manage to fix it properly, either, so I had to improvise and do something different, which was kind of disappointing.

Oh dear, that sounds like you must've been one step away from a breakdown! It's never worth risking your mental health to get a package in the mail on time! Wink Glad you had fun in the end, though.

Sent mine today. As usual, a mad hunt for a suitable box at the end, even though I've had one specially set aside for a week. (It turned out to be just slightly too small. Embarrassed)

Remember to PM me and your partner both when you send AND receive. I might miss it if you just post in the forum. And if you aren't going to post by tomorrow, let me know so I don't worry.

The deerstalker felting size was a bit of a happy accident. I was 3/4 done and thought I would just felt it down for knick-knack size.

Duh-oh! Looking at the photo again it's quite obviously doll-sized, not head-sized! It's still lovely, though I'm no longer astounded at your shrink-estimation mathematics! The felting makes it just right.

Oh my, silentblair, I don't  know where to begin!

How did you manage the sizing of the felted deerstalker? It's a brilliant thing, but how did you know how much bigger to knit it so it will still be wearable after it's felted down?

The Basil-emblazoned Kindle pouch is one of my favourite styles. Is the design painted on the fabric, or did you print it somehow?

The knitted viper concealed inside the book is the kind of complex, demented and yet utterly useless thing that I love most in the world. Grin

And you have to put that embroidery in a separate post in Needlework, so it can be featured here on Craftster and picked up by Mr. X Stitch and other bloggers. It's awesome on so many levels that it needs wider acclaim!

Waiting for things to dry can be such a pain, can't it? But it's always better to wait than to try and force it. So send a day late if necessary. I was so sure I was going to get mine in the mail today, but everything else got in the way and I still don't have the small finished. I'm not even going to have time to check out the Gallery til later tonight!
