Hi - so this is my first time posting anything I've made (eek!)

This is a sampler I designed and made for a friend for Christmas. I (not so subtly) asked her for a list of her most favourite geeky television programmes/ films and then picked some to design a sampler around. Deciding what images to use for each thing was a lot of fun  Grin

Anyway, I was rubbish and didn't take any pictures so the recipient (who's a member here) has sent some through to me (if you see this post - thank you hun!)

I'll leave you to see if you can work out what the  geeky references are  Wink





Thanks for looking  Smiley

Thanks  Smiley

Labryinth is my daughter's favorite movie

Your daughter has an amazing taste in movies, I think it might still be my all-time fav as well  Smiley

LOL! So awesome!

Off-hand, I see NCIS (ooh, that one took me a while, LOL), True Blood, X-Files, Labyrinth, and Star Trek. I think I'm missing one, though... Hmm...

Nevertheless, excellent work! My favorite are the tiny Enterprises and the little wormy from Labyrinth! Soooo cute!

Yep...well done  Grin The only one not on the list is this one...



Which is a bit obscure anyway...it's supposed to be Jamie Hyneman from Mythbusters (the guy on the left)...



I'm not sure if I've quite captured him though  Undecided
