A brilliant how-to for the nest, and so adaptable to different uses, but I wish it hadn't been on such an alluring ribbon embroidery site. Yet another craft I wish I had time for!

I don't know the modern BBC radio Holmes at all- that's one I'll have to look up. I do love the earnest hokey-ness of the old Rathbone-Bruce radio shows. There was a British TV series of a similar style with Ronald Howard as Holmes. Marion Crawford is a particularly thick-headed Watson.  Study in Emerald is new to me too. A novel?

Christopher Lee played Holmes in a movie of "The Hound of the Baskervilles". I think there might have been one of "Silver Blaze" too, though maybe that was Peter Cushing. (Who was also in "Hound of the Baskervilles".)

Eight swappers already! I think this is gonna be a lot of fun, folks. (Sorry, I should have said "I do believe we shall make this a capital entertainment, my friends!" Must try to be more Victorian.)

I'm sure the best part of "A Game of Shadows" will be Stephen Fry as brother Mycroft. Like Oscar Wilde, it's a role he was born to play. Personally, I have the same problem with Downey's performance that I have with Benedict Cummerbatch's, namely that he speaks too quickly. I prefer a slower, more deliberate delivery.

My favourite Holmes actors are of course Jeremy Brett (the performance against which all others are judged) and Christopher Lee. I'm curious who everyone else's favourites are?

Whyyyyy oh why must you do this to me?!

Sorry, Ali! I tried to keep this a secret from you, but I guess you found out anyway. Wink

Don't worry if you just don't have time for this one - I'm sure there'll be another round later.

I gotta tell you guys though, I have one of Knicker's mushroom domes and it's really incredibly teensy, smaller than you think...

I know! I saw them at the Knickertwist studio open house last weekend, and I can't keep from trying to tell people how really, unbelievably small they actually are!

SKooKum, your cork bricks work very well. It reminds me that I have a roll of very thin cork sheeting tucked away somewhere. It's exactly the right thickness to do a veneer of bricks. I wonder where it could be.

Sometime in the next month or so I'm finally going to be able to start moving stuff from the storage unit back into the house, and I'm sure I'll find it then. (Along with a lot of other things I've forgotten about.)

The scrying mirror is just great - the frame is perfect for it. I'd have to put the snake back, though - he just looks like he belongs on a black mirror!  It's still a full moon tonight - clean your mirror well and put it outside (or in a window) where it can soak up the moonlight all night. Just be sure to cover it up again before the sun hits it in the morning.

And is the uterus pillow really a heat pad? Brilliant! Many years ago I thought of producing a set of cute plush toys of the reproductive organs. Peter Penis, Veronica Vagina, Tommy Testicle, etc. But I never did come up with a good Uterus name. Ottoline? Terry? Tootie? Add a couple of Muppet-like eyes to yours and it's just how I'd imagined her!

Do you think it would be okay to send in a questionnaire with "will answer later" on a few of them?

Up to a point it's perfectly fine, but I will be trying to match fans of the stories with each other, fans of "SherlocK" together, etc. But there's a lot of flexibility there, so if you're not too fussy about what kind of Holmes fan you get matched with, jump right in.

Enola Holmes? Another new one to me! A Holmesian Y.A. series makes perfect sense, too. I'll have to go looking for it.

Welcome those who have signed up already. You should be "In Progress" now.

Sheepblue, I think you've managed to make Knickertwist's tiny toadstools look absolutely enormous!

And I gotta say that the egg-carton stone and brick technique is my new favourite thing. It looks so freakin' great! I really like the way you did the colours of the individual bricks. Not surprised that actual spackle was too hard to use for pointing the bricks, though. I know I couldn't have done it. The puff paint was an inspired alternative.
