1761  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Warm Wishes for Yule 32 Gallery on: December 20, 2011 04:55:18 PM
Those beads really do look like luscious little berries! Very pretty. And of course the altar cloth is magnificent. What a great design. But I especially love the cinnamon stick pentacles - I think that's the one idea I'm going to steal. Wink

And don't get too carried away with your Happy Yule just yet - both the astronomical and astrological solstice occur on the 22nd this year, so Yule is at least a day away no matter how you calculate it. (The Sun enters Capricorn at 12:30 am on the 22nd, so the astrological solstice occurs almost exactly at midnight this year.)

Ooh! I promised myself I wouldn't comment on every package, but I really like those wreaths. Somehow seasonal without being at all "Christmassy".

Yay, caught another one unawares! Welcome, Illiamdra!

A reminder to everyone who's signed up to check their status if you haven't already and make sure the Sherlock Holmes Swap is listed as IN PROGRESS. If it isn't, it's because I've messed up the Swap Progress Form again, but it can be corrected. (I think I've got everyone now.)

Fence sitters, remember this is your last full day to sign up. I'll put partners together tomorrow (Tuesday) evening.

I love that line too. I have to admit I couldn't remember where it originally appeared, and had to look it up. It's from "The Adventure of the Creeping Man" and is followed, not surprisingly, by a paragraph in which Watson grumbles about the thanklessness of his role as an "intellectual whetstone" for Holmes. He says it jocularly, but I can't help but hear a tone of bitterness there. I recall reading an essay by Dorothy L. Sayers (a Sherlockian scholar as well as a great mystery writer) where she catalogues all Watson's complaints of this sort, and suggests that under his faade of bonhomie, Watson chafed in bitter resentment of Holmes's treatment of him.

OK ,I am trying to post my pictures of what I got, but my paste button is not working. I Can can copy the link to the picture just not paste it. Does anyone know what to do?

Jennden, did you get this fixed? If not, try this: highlight the photo link and press CTRL+c on your keyboard to copy it. Then in your posting, press CTRL+v to paste it.

It sounds like RDJr is going to give Tom Cruise a challenge for king of the Christmas box-office this year! Looking forward to seeing it.

There's a new "real" Sherlock Holmes novel just out: The House of Silk by Anthony Horowitz. What makes it "real" is that it was commissioned by the Arthur Conan Doyle estate, and the author has tried hard to make it authentic in style and form to the originals. That means no Victorian celebrity walk-ons, no Holmes-Watson gay subtext, no vampires/space aliens/Jack the Ripper, no romantic interludes, etc. I'm hoping someone might've bought it for me for Christmas this year, but if not I think I'll have to be my own Santa Claus!

Wow, Fullmoon, that's a heck of a course load. Don't over-do it in your first year and burn out.

Sherlock Hemlock! I'd forgotten too! But that Muppet Sherlock Holmes thing really intrigues me. I wonder if it's still available anywhere. Must remember to look it up. Let us know if you find out anything more, Silentblair.

And yes, hgddm, it is going to be an awesome swap. I'm surprised you haven't joined... yet. Wink

I am also amused that he played Oscar Wilde as well, not least because in the Oscar Wilde Murder Mysteries by Gyles Brandreth (basically, Oscar solving mysteries in his vast and crazy social circle, with help from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle), there's a line where Conan Doyle is so impressed by Oscar's detective skills that he says he's going to give Holmes an older brother and base him on Oscar.

I've read those Wilde Mysteries, but I'd somehow missed that line!

You're more than welcome to join us, Lynx! You've got enough posts to your name, you've been a member more than long enough. And there's at least one other Canadian in the swap so far (me), with another waiting in the wings. Wink So there's nothing standing in your way!
