1  Re: David Bowie Tribute gallery in The Swap Gallery by thegirlwiththemouseyhair on: March 31, 2016 05:22:18 PM
I received my stuff yesterday, as happily it didn't have a far geographic distance to travel, and the package is awesome! Thanks so much, Acadian Driftwood.

An Aladdin Sane magnet, although I feel like the lightning bolt has just become a symbol for Bowie in general, and a red Spider from Mars. I'm actually currently making an active effort to stop being arachnophobic in large part because there's a species of spider named after Bowie (and how could I be scared of something named after someone I love?) This little guy is perfect for that, and I can't wait to find a use for the key chain.

A little bag with the lyrics to Heroes. I walked down the aisle to this song, so it's now extra significant to me, and the bag is just gorgeous - I wish I could sew like that. I'll probably use this bag to carry essentials when I don't need much more than my phone and keys on me (or on the honeymoon when I'd just need my room key), and maybe pencils and essentials for class.

Lastly and most impressively, a super beautiful and professional-looking Bowie t-shirt. Seriously, this looks like it was store bought. I'm just wondering how I should wash it, Acadian Driftwood? Because you can bet I'll be wearing this and don't want to destroy it in the laundry.

So in conclusion, thanks heaps to Acadian Driftwood for all the lovely stuff!

2  Buttoning/fastening mega bulky knit? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by thegirlwiththemouseyhair on: September 06, 2015 01:17:05 PM
I just finished knitting a mega bulky cowl/wrap combo loosely inspired by Katniss cowl in Catching Fire and the Lion Brand District 12 wrap pattern (I didn't follow it exactly but the idea is more similar to their adaptation than to more faithful replicas of the costume). The scarf/wrap part were knit separately and are supposed to be sewn together. However, I love the look of the two pieces separately as well, and after spending so much time and money, Id like to have a versatile piece which I could wear as one Katniss inspired cowl OR detach into two different items and choose between them.

That brings me to my question. Is there any removable alternative to just sewing them together? Im thinking of sewing a row of buttons into each side of the cowl and little button holes on each end of the wrap part, but I used Bernats Mega Bulky Yarn and am not sure if buttons would be sturdy enough to survive wearing this piece buttoned together, without having it detach when I dont want it to. I definitely see myself wearing it buttoned or seamed together as the full District 12 wrap, so it would have to survive more than, say, one Halloween party, but I would like to be able to use them separately too. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Whoo, sorry to be so late with this BUT I am back from the dead (well, from the horrible 3-ish week flu I've had), and finally got a chance to photograph all the awesome stuff Myrdda sent me.

First, a super cool shadow box with little mementos from my fave episodes! XD

Then, this awesome mug that's almost as big as my face and that has Ten's quote about tea and Eleven's Geronimo! on the inside. I'm crazy about tea (and have been super sick, lol) so this is awesome. Myrdda also sent me this adorable Cyberman-esque tea infuser (again, super useful given my tea habit) and this beautiful bookmark.

A Vote Saxon t-shirt! I love the Master and hate politicians (worked in a non-partisan capacity in Parliament for a while, lol) so this is super appropriate to my interests, plus it's a great shirt!

And apple jelly, which is delicious.

Myrdda, thanks so much! The mug and tea infuser are currently in use right now, along with my TARDIS mug that I picked up a few months ago - I need multiple mugs for multiple flavours, lol. Seriously, thanks for spoiling me so much with such awesome stuff!

Wow, everyone's stuff is so awesome - I feel so sheepish about the contributions I made...  Embarrassed

The stuff I just received from Wulf, however, is absolutely nothing to be sheepish about! I got to pick up this absolutely awesome box after an annoying day, and it brought a big, nerdly smile to my face. My pictures aren't great as I only have my cell phone camera, but here we go...

Such a cool item - a Sherlock Holmes magnifying glass (which I think would make a nifty paper weight, too, as long as I use it on a moderate size pile of paper). Seriously, this is just so gorgeous it looks professionally done.

Letter stamps...

...That are really the Dancing Men! I'm already thinking up uses for this, lol (like surprising fellow Sherlockians with gifts... or keeping diaries/fiction writing really private).

A collection of bookmarks with quotes and illustrations (incidentally, where do these come from? They don't look like Sidney Paget...). Again, these look as if they were professionally made! I'm so excited to use them.

And last but not least, a limited edition, locally "grown"/published Sherlockian pastiche and a poster from an exhibit of Sherlockiana at one of the TO museums... So cool.

Thanks so much to Wulf for the awesome crafts and for having organized all this.

Edit: Ugh, I totally rotated these to display properly, but for some reason, either Photobucket or Craftster de-rotated them. Will fix tomorrow...
