Sherlock Holmes Swap

Gallery is here.

As far as I can see, Craftster has never had a Sherlock Holmes swap. This curious absence is a mystery in itself, and one that should be easy to solve. So just in time for the new Robert Downey Jr. Holmes movie, let's swap Sherlock Holmes stuff!

Since the first Sherlock Holmes story, A Study in Scarlet, appeared in the Strand Magazine in 1887, we haven't been able to get enough of the great detective's adventures. Beyond the original 56 stories and four novels, there have been countless plays, musicals, cartoons, radio dramas, comics, TV series and movies, as well as hundreds of new novels and stories featuring the immortal characters of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson. That should be enough raw material for a dozen swaps, so what are we waiting for?

Because of the holidays, this swap will have a fairly long crafting period. Thats great if you want to do time-consuming crafts like knitting or embroidery, but it also makes it easier to put things off and lose your momentum. (Especially with so much else happening in December.) We want this to be a flake-free swap, so ongoing communication is a must, both with your swap partner and in the discussion thread. If you're going to be out of touch over the holidays, let me and your partner know ahead of time so we don't worry about you. I will be looking for you to post an update of your progress at least once a week, and be sure to post photos of the package you receive to the Gallery.  Requirements for the swap are one large crafted item and one medium or two smalls, plus any extras you and your partner want to send.

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER
Name of swap:

Craftster username:

Email address:

Your real name:

Mailing address including the country:

Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?

Do you confirm that you:
-  are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval?
-  understand that a Delivery Confirmation Number is required for swaps within the US or Canada, or a copy of the mailing receipt for international swaps?

Have you read the original Arthur Conan Doyle stories and novels?

If so, which is your favourite?

Do you have a favourite character in the Sherlock Holmes world? (Other than Holmes or Watson, of course, whom we all love.)

What movie/TV versions of Holmes have you seen? Who is your favourite actor to have played Sherlock Holmes? Dr. Watson?

What crafts do you do?

What colours/styles/materials do you like most? Least?

Is there anything you would not like to receive?

Do you prefer to receive crafts based only on the original stories or one particular film/TV version, or is the entire 124 years of Holmes material fair game for your partner?

Do you have any allergies? Any known allergens in your home? (Pets, smoking, etc.)

Anything else you'd like your partner to know?

sirael, i love your monsters! Just sent in my questionnaire, too.
Hey, guys-did you all know that Holmes was also an expert photographer? True! He was quite the cloak and daguerreotype.

Aw, thanks, Bookstorebabe!  I'll go with My_RubySlipper's answer and say worst/best pun.  :]  Only with Sherlock Holmes can you make jokes about daguerrotypes...  Love it.

OOH this sounds like fun.  I'm going to think about it for a little while, to make sure I can actually commit to it.  Hopefully...

Oooo I think this swap is going to create some facinating banter!

We had my daughter's 5th birthday party today and I am exhausted. Otherwise, I would be working on my questionnaire instead of this post.
Count on me to send it in soon!

I haven't read much Sherlock Holmes, but I did fall in love with the Enola Holmes series - has anyone else read those? Yes, they are YA, but I like them - I can imagine a ton of crafts out of those books alone, especially the Language of Flowers stuff...
