This is beautifully done, and I think your colour choice goes a long way towards making it seem real. Today we wouldn't think of pairing those two colours, but it's a very 18th c. combination. And I like your tip about the pannier ties, BennaeQuee. I've never known how the shape of those skirts is controlled.

Thanks for posting this, sirsinene. It's inspiring to see such nice work. And where did you find that lovely wall for a backdrop? It was a perfect choice!

What are you yelling at the TV? "It's behind you!"? "Don't go in there!"? "How could you miss that, you idiot!"?

Here's the package I received from the_canadian_lynx today. I love her sense of humour!


First, there's a set of small but lovely magnets with tiny Sherlockian quotes (and two silhouettes as bookends).


Next, a key fob with a double-sided miniature image of the Holmes brothers (Sherlock is on the other side) and a tiny violin. It's too fragile to attach to my overly-macho bunch of keys, but I think I can find an appropriate place to show it off.


A very funny double-sided canvas bag with the newspaper headlines from the Jeremy Brett TV version of "The Second Stain" (and Holmes's comments): MURDER IN WESTMINSTER. CRIME OF A MYSTERIOUS NATURE. VALET OUT FOR THE EVENING. "They always are." HOUSEKEEPER HEARD NOTHING. "They never do." And with it, a knitted bookmark that's a miniature of Martin Freeman's scarf from Sherlock. Could there be anything else more wonderfully nerdy than these?


And finally, in spite of all that, this note is my favourite thing in the package. It's printed so extremely small that it's unreadable without a magnifying glass! (Fortunately being a student of the great sleuth, I happened to have one handy.) What makes this doubly delicious is that in return I sent her a magnifying glass! Grin

Thanks for these, and congratulations on finishing your first swap in record time!

Wulf , I love the article and there are mermaids in Florida. They live at WeekiWachee springs. My sister Jenndenn was one for many years when we where younger. Yes, we are twins! I always wanted to be one, but I also swim like a board as well. LOL  Grin

Wow! I just looked it up. What an amazing thing! It's the Florida version of the Rockettes! I'd much rather watch beautiful mermaids swimming and singing than imprisoned dolphins forced to perform tricks.

As always, I'm in awe. I especially love the tiger-stripe one!

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.
