i broke out my glass crafting equipment.  i needed to come up with something Awesome for the “be Awesome again” swap...

my partner and i share an admiration for Dr Who and what is more iconic than the tardis.

i made a small simple panel to fit inside a shadowbox.  hubby helped out with this one by making the electronics and programming the chip for the light effect.  the soldering isn’t perfect.  but i did electrocute myself when i realized my soldering iron has a fray in the wire Wink (part of the reason the last few lines weren’t smoothed over better)

it’s hard to take pictures of glass behind glass.  Smiley

Seeking scraps! I'm in need of a variety of white on white scraps. (2.5inch square minimum) for pixel quilts. Have any? Swap for? PM me! Smiley

Dr. Who is taking over the world, I think.  I have to admit, I started watching because of all the attention on Craftster.

Love your Tardis.  I so admire glass crafts.  The light is pretty awesome as well.

Excellent work!

I totally hit this Rocks!     I thought it was awesome when it was just a stained glass tardis. Then I saw the youtube video and the light at the top of the tardis fades in and out just like the real one! Awesome Job!

Freaking amazing work, you need to alternate quilting and glasscrafts because you're super talented at both Smiley <3
