This! This is exactly where I was hoping someone would take the "Doctor Who" crafting (though I didn't know what form it would take), and you did it! It doesn't just use a reference or imagery from the show, it actually tells a story. Marvelous!
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Another Doctor Who Swap anyone??? on: April 07, 2015 08:23:16 PM
I don't want to stomp out the idea of a quicker, easier swap, since some folks specifically asked for a smaller swap...But maybe this bigger swap could run during the summer, to give people enough time to go back through to watch past seasons?

As for me, I'm newer-than-most to the show but only have one 2-part finale left before I've seen everything of the reboot era. My partner and I have been together for about a year, and early on he insisted on starting me out on Matt Smith's Doctor, then circling back around to Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant once we ran out of new Peter Capaldi episodes (which I think was a good idea). It's been a weekly thing for us, so I'm kind of sad to have reached the end of the era.  Smiley

I can't do any swapping at the moment, but I wanted to toss this idea into the ring:

Since months of waiting are ahead for new episodes, how about an excuse to go back and re-watch all seasons? What about a swap that challenges participants to dig deep into the show: find obscure and creative ways to craft based on all reboot-era Doctors (and possibly further back, if partners agreed to it)? Maybe scavenger-hunt style? Some sample guidelines (which likely contradict each other) :

- Avoid the usual go-tos that people know without having seen the show, like the show logos, blue TARDIS boxes, Daleks, catch-phrases, or printouts of character photos...unless they are used in a very unusual way or in a very challenging medium. Use this between-seasons time to unearth the wonderful quirky characters, quotes, and subject matter that time has forgotten.

- Craft 5 points; either one large awesome thing, or multiple smaller items which each relate to a different reboot Doctors' era.

- Identify in note to your partner or include in your crafting as many as possible:
  • A non-Earth planet the Doctor has visited
  • A non-recurring villain, and if known, their weakness/antidote and their home planet
  • A very unpopular character or episode--or one that you did not enjoy
  • A memorable one-time role (or 2x role, if you count characters like Stormageddon's dad  Cheesy)
  • Something symbolic/iconic of each companion
  • Something from an older episode that gets referenced in later episode(s) (i.e. both Tennant and Capaldi say, "Are you my mummy?", referencing the Eccleston era)
  • A fiendish plot that didn't target Great Britain (I honestly don't remember if there were any!)
  • An invented scientific term or explanation that makes perfect sense to the Doctor (but probably not the rest of us)
  • The last of a species, whether they die during the show or live on
  • A symbol you can recreate
  • A great quote or interaction that you haven't seen immortalized online
  • A unique detail from each Doctor's interior TARDIS
  • Something regarding a companion's family member
  • A friend or friends of the Doctor (other than recurring companions)
  • An adventure River Song says she's had with the Doctor, which the audience never gets to see
  • Any of the characters or creatures reimagined as a different species
  • A color scheme, pattern, or graphic design used in a particular episode or scene
  • A silly version of a feared villain (i.e. a Weeping Angel frozen while doing the funky chicken)
  • A nonfictional historical figure the Doctor meets, or a nonfictional historical event that the Doctor meddles in
  • A strange way that villains have captured, killed, or fed off of humans (make sure it isn't going to gross-/creep-out your partner)
  • An instance in which a companion saves the Doctor's life or otherwise saves the day
  • The species or specific alien you'd most like to meet
  • A positive trait the Doctor points out about the human race
  • A life lesson you've learned in watching Doctor Who

Whether or not it becomes a swap, it might be a fun personal challenge!
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap R4 Gallery! on: April 02, 2015 09:55:30 PM
And to conclude the gallery with a big, zen-filled bang, I received the most unbelievably awesome patch possible from craftADDchick today:

It's a model of the labyrinth of Chartres Cathedral; and while I have never been to Chartres, almost every labyrinth I've walked has been modeled after the same labyrinth...so while I love labyrinths in general, this specific one takes me back to some amazing moments and spaces from my past.  Smiley Personal significance aside, this is such amazing work! The points of the flower, and the cogs around the perimeter of the circle are seed beads, but they're smaller than most seed beads I've ever seen, so I didn't even see them at first. And, if I'm not mistaken, the whole design was made by couching thread. It's all stunning. I can't believe I never thought of making a labyrinth patch myself (notice the kinship with my avatar image?). I can only imagine how long this took to stitch, and there's no way I would have made something this precise and beautiful.

Thanks for a great swap!

You guys have done such a great job. I'm so inspired to make more of these...It's at the top of my crafting list right now, but crafting is down around #11 on my to-do list right now.  Cheesy

My package from mousee23 arrived!

Clothing recons -- cloth flower on skirt (collaboration with mousee's daughter), and a capelet that I'm assuming was originally a sweater...

A handmade card of Doctors and a fabric cuff...

A Neverending Story-inspired box (with a Falcor quote  Smiley), and hang-able nature shrine/niche (I'm so out-of-practice, I can't remember the proper name for these things I love!)

The top is open (I think it was originally a bottle!), with a large glass half-marble over it, so light shines down on the inside. A better image of the inside:

Thank you for crafting for me, Anne!
