Ooooh, I think I better sit this one out. I just have too many things I'm procrastinating on already. (Is that a vice? More like just a bad habit.) But I'll be here stalking the swap thread!

I just started part time at the library (happy dance!) and when shelving found a copy of The Great Mouse Detective! So I'll be watching that in a day or two when I have the time.
It's not slacking, it's research for the swap, right? ^^

Even better if you can find an excuse to watch it at work!

why does this always happen to me! i begin to make some thing for my partner... fall in love with it and then have to make two lol

I do that sometimes too. Are you going to keep the first one or the second for yourself? (There's often quite a difference between the two.)

I was trying to imagine the mid-shoot costume change, too. How did you manage it?

BTW, the prices on your website for these pieces are AMAZING. Shocked

Beautiful work, and you model them like you were born in a petticoat! And I totally agree about the cut of Victorian clothes being flattering to larger figures (men and women both.) Paradoxically, the trick is usually to use more fabric rather than less, as in your beautiful jackets.

I was a bit spooked because I have an old set of photos of myself with a background remarkably like yours, but taken at the Alberta Legislature in Edmonton. Cheesy (I am not dressed nearly as well - it was the 80's.)

Please force yourself to take more photos of your work - we'd all love to see more!

One Tiny Imbolc Thing sounds good to me. It's the perfect size to do at this time of year.

Welcome back, all! Illiamdra, what's a Ninni?

I got a few Holmes-related Christmas gifts this year: some cassettes and CDs of the old (and newer) radio plays, a novel called The Sherlockian, a little book titled The Sherlock Holmes School of Self-Defence: The Manly Art of Bartitsu as used against Professor Moriarty, and two sets of DVDs: the two Christopher Lee mini-series and the late 60's BBC series with Peter Cushing. Now, I think I've mentioned here already that Cushing is one of my favourite Holmes actors, but I'd only seen him in the Hammer Films Hound of the Baskervilles, which is a bit dated but he's very good. The BBC series also started off with a version of The Hound, which I watched last night. Pretty dreadful, I'm afraid - tiny, poky sets, not particularly good supporting cast (the actor playing Sir Henry Baskerville was attempting a Canadian accent and producing something unconvincing as either Canadian or American) and a rather muddled script. The hound was barely seen and not particularly terrifying. There are four others still to watch, and I hope they're better. Peter Cushing is a much better Holmes than they deserved, and Nigel Stock is a good Watson.

The Christopher Lee TV mini-series have been spliced together into two long movies, Incident at Victoria Falls and Sherlock Holmes and the Leading Lady. We watched Incident at Victoria Falls on Christmas Day. Kind of dreadful. Everyone makes an appearance, from King Edward VI to Teddy Roosevelt (surprisingly well-played by Claude Akins). Lee plays Holmes as an older man trying to retire to his bee-keeping, and he pretty much just shows up to collect his paycheck. Patrick McNee, on the other hand, works frantically hard as a particularly bumbling Watson. The story is mostly set in South Africa, and although some of the second half was shot on location at Victoria Falls, the first part is clearly not Africa at all. (It's a Belgian production, so I'd guess it was filmed somewhere in southern Europe.)  I guess we'll have to watch the second one soon, although I can't say I'm looking forward to seeing Morgan Fairchild as Irene Adler. Tongue

Anyone else get Holmesian goodies in their stockings?

Yay! Virtual glitter and Santa smileys - it's Christmas in Craftsterland!

Thanks for letting us know you'll be away, Illiandra, and have a good holiday.

Summer and I both agreed "small packages, please", so I was delighted to find I could fit everything in one photo, perhaps for the first swap ever!

The hand-bound book is covered in a collage of pieces of washi paper, with lovely gleaming white paper inside. The notebook is a pocket-sized version of the same. And a matching Yule card too!

Thanks so much for these, Summer. I love blank books for sketching etc. and I happen  to need a new pocket notebook right now, so they're the perfect Yule gift. Smiley
