Yay, WYOKrista, I'm so glad you like everything!  Grin  I laughed when I got your package and saw you sent magnets and cards too...I guess we were on the same wavelength! Smiley  Btw, the newspaper ads are from a 1935 Iowa newspaper.

I actually received WYOKrista's lovely package last Friday, but my camera and computer were having an argument, so I couldn't get pictures posted until now.  So without further delay, here's the pics!

Some handcrafted cards--I love them!

Adorable magnets...

The envelope was absolutely stuffed, I couldn't get it all in one picture! 

I especially love all the old book pages!  Thanks again WYOKrista--I can't wait to do some crafting with the things you sent!  Grin

2  Don't blink...it's a Weeping Angel poppet in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by rhapsody on: February 22, 2011 10:53:42 PM
My partner received today, so I can finally share the poppet I made for the Doctor Who round 5 swap.  Grin

I saw her in my garden...at first I thought she was a statue, but then I blinked...and she moved!

I used ghillie's wonderful poppet pattern, with a few modifications.  She's made from grey Alova suede and her dress is a "stone" look fabric that was a lucky find (I was looking for a different fabric and found this tucked in the back of the fabric store).

Trying to get her hair to look like the Angels' was probably the hardest part--I went through lots of trial and error and cutting and fiddling trying to get it to look right.  But in the end, I'm proud of how it turned out.  Her wings are quilted to give texture and shape.  Fitting her dress over the wings was another interesting experience...

It was a lot of fun making her and I'm very proud of how she turned out.  I just hope she behaves herself in her new home...  Grin

Yay, padfoot, I'm glad you got your stuff!!  Thanks for the sweet comments everyone on the weeping angel and quilt--I had a lot of fun crafting them!  Grin

I was very excited to come home from work today from a box from padfoot...filled with some of the cutest crocheted dolls ever!  A 10th Doctor, an Ood and a Weeping Angel to be exact:

Next I pulled out a fantastic bookmark and TARDIS phone case:

And finally, an awesome necklace! I love it!  (my camera, however, did not love it and was having difficulties focusing...  Undecided )

Thank you so much padfoot, I love everything!  Grin

I received from Ryn!  Grin  We had agreed to send two crafted items--one based on the book we were sending and one based on our favorites.  She sent me Chew vol. 1, which looks like fun and I can't wait to read it!  A felt can of beets, from Chew, (which has me even more intrigued)--I love the details and it's a perfect pencil cup for my desk. Smiley  And a necklace of Spider Jerusalem's glasses from Transmetropolitan!!  So awesome.  And a Green Lantern ring extra, which I just might have put on my finger and started reciting the Green Lantern oath as soon as I pulled it out of the envelope...  Wink

Thanks Ryn!!

On the 12th Day of Christmas, Leashhh gave to me...sweets!  Grin  Chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter, plus super cute (and yummy) lollipops.  The cookies are, um, pretty much gone already.  Cheesy

On the 11th Day of Christmas, Leashhh gave to me...ornaments! I especially like the clay (I think that's what they are?) ones and the clay wrapped ball is really cool.  And a TARDIS! Cheesy  Sadly, two didn't survive the post office's rough handling...  Sad

On the 10th Day of Christmas, Leashhh gave to me...pet stuff! I had a pretty good idea it was pet stuff as soon as I started opening the box, as both pets were going absolutely nuts and wouldn't leave me alone!  There's a cat bed, some cute cat toys, treats, doggie toys and chews.  Luna loves the chews!  Grin

On the 9th Day of Christmas, Leashhh gave to me...pamper myself day! The soaps and scrubs and baths salts smell yummy enough to eat.  Cheesy  And the robe is really pretty.  They all came in a super cute fabric bag too.  I've been dealing with major stress at my job, so this is just what I need!

On the 8th Day of Christmas, Leashhh gave to me...kitchen stuff!  Some towels, hot pads, cookie cutters, a whisk, a yummy sounding cookie mix, and an adorable apron!  I'm ready for baking! Cheesy

On the 7th Day of Christmas, Leashhh gave to me...random things! Cheesy 2 cute resin magnets, a gorgeous feather headband, a notepad, beads, a candle and some really cute sewn coasters!

On the 6th Day of Christmas, Leashhh gave to me...soap making supplies! Awesome! I've been wanting to do this for a while, and now I have no excuse! Cheesy

On the 5th day of Christmas, Leashhh gave to me...resin supplies! Resin, molds, stickers, tons of sprinkles...I'm looking forward to playing with it all.

On the 4th day of Christmas, Leashhh gave to me...jewelry! Lots and lots of jewelry--I love it! In a cute little purse that I totally forgot to photograph.  Oops!

On the 3rd day of Christmas, Leashhh gave to me...a purse, wallet and coinpurse! Cheesy  I really love the fabric used for the purse and wallet--it's super cute.

On the 2nd day of Christmas, Leashhh gave to me...pajamas!  They're very comfy and I love the colors in the tie-dyed shirt.  Plus, coffee and a christmas mug. Cheesy

On the 1st day of Christmas, Leashhh gave to me...a TARDIS quilt!!! Omg, I love it!  I snuggled up under last night to watch the Doctor Who Christmas special. Cheesy

6  Tribbles have invaded my condo! (with pattern) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by rhapsody on: September 06, 2010 10:20:16 PM
It all started with one...sitting there, so innocent and fuzzy.  But then they started multiplying...

So, yeah, I spent my weekend sewing tribbles--14 at last count.  We're having a Star Trek themed party (yes, I am that geeky) and I decided it would be fun if everyone got a tribble as a party favor.  Grin 

I created the pattern based on David Gerrold's description of the original pattern they used for the episode, which is essentially an elongated figure-8 folded in halve to make fuzzy oval.  It's ridiculously easy to sew up, and can be resized to make a tribble of whatever size you desire. 

Basically, get yourself some fun fur in browns, greys, or white (Joann had a bunch, I guess because Halloween is coming up?) and cut out your pattern.  Fold it in half and sew, leaving a 2"-ish gap at the top.  Turn and fill with stuffing and then sew up your opening.  I did mine on the machine, but you could just as easily hand sew them.  Use a wire brush to tease up the fur into a wild hair-do, and voila, a tribble of your own.

If you want a more detailed step by step photo tutorial, you can take a peek here: http://www.thenerdette.com/?p=321

Just be careful, when you're dealing with tribbles, things can get out of hand quickly...  Grin Shocked

I received from the lovely papilionette last week, but it's taken me until now to convince my camera and computer that they wanted to play nice together.  Anyway, it was exciting to get a box all the way from the Netherlands, though judging from the battered state of the box, I think it might have been intercepted by Daleks along the way!  Grin

I got a cute little adipose keychain and an awesome crocheted Captain Jack doll...

You can't really tell in the picture, but Jack's coat is removable and he has the cutest little suspenders on.  My crochet skills are limited to flat squares, so I'm blown away by your skills. Smiley

And a fantastic TARDIS inspired bag!  Check out the embroidered detail on the strap--I love it! 

Thanks again papilionette!!  Grin

I received from the lovely hoboe! Smiley  It actually came on Friday, but I was out of town.  It was very exciting to come home to a H2G2 package. Smiley

Here's everything together:

And close ups:

First up, a great bag made out of some gorgeous fabric and Slartibartfast's "Best Fjords" award!  Grin

Next I unwrapped a beautiful painted box with one of my favorite quotes on the top.  And inside was some really pretty yarn and a thread cutter necklace (I needed one of those!)

And finally, the thing that made me laugh and laugh...Marvin's autobiography! (I'd totally read it.)

It has a secret inside... (and there were Swedish Fish inside too, but, uh, those didn't last long enough for the photo shoot)

Thanks hoboe for a great package--this was such a fun swap!  And I'm glad you liked the things I sent too!  Grin

9  Cyberman shirt--first time using freezer paper stencils in Stenciling: Completed Projects by rhapsody on: July 01, 2010 11:22:51 PM
So I needed something to wear to a Doctor Who finale viewing party (yes, I am *that* geeky  Wink) and had been wanting to try freezer paper stencils for awhile...and this is the result.  The picture doesn't really show it, but I used a metallic silver paint and I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.  I think I'm hooked--already full of ideas for the next stencils I want to make!  Grin

Ok, I finally have time to post what I received from aethelberga...A Spock Box!

Here's a closer picture of the top, which still doesn't quite capture the beautiful, tiny stitches...

Isn't it fantastic?  Thanks aethelberga--I love it!
