The candy corn prisoner is too cute! What a lot of detail in the packaging, too. And that stumpwork jack-o'-lantern is incredible, I really like the different oranges and greens and the subtle interest they create.

I received my package today! It came in a holiday-appropriate package:

What a great sticker! And inside, a beautifully detailed felted pouch!

I love it! It has everything from my theme list, and such a lot of detail in such a small piece! I especially love the stripes on the pumpkins and the wispy clouds, and all the different colours in the autumn leaves, and... okay, everything about it is great. Even the lining fabric is cool!

I don't know what I'm going to keep in it yet, but I'll definitely use it! Thank you so much for being my partner, dessadoll - I hope you like your item half as much as I like mine!

Mamarose22, the kitty you received is super cute! I like the way the variegated yarn gives her stripes.

I received today from StudioANF and I love it! She needle felted me a delightful little Ood! He is wonderfully detailed - I especially like the bead she used for the translator orb. He's going into the collection. (I have a collection of Ood now!)

I received my package, and I love it!

First up is Mortimer, a fuzzy green monster with piercing yellow eyes and a very nice purple bow tie.

My cat Peppers likes Mortimer a lot.

Peppers, no! Bring him back!

Luckily for everyone, Mortimer likes cats, and not just as dessert.  They will get along fine.  It's a good thing he's so small though, otherwise their roles might be reversed.

And now, the absolutely stunning extra:  Dan, the dapper Ood!

He is super duper detailed, and handsome.  Check out that argyle vest!  And his tiny fedora!  His pants even have a crease down the side.

So basically, I love my monsters more than anything and they are fabulous beyond imagining.  Thank you so much, bananasandhair!

Oh my goodness, all of these are fabulous!  I am beginning to feel like my monster might not be up to snuff... everyone else's are so creative!  I love the details everyone has put into them!

Dollface, it looks like you have a little typo in your image URL.  Try this:

I absolutely adore the fabric used for the backing of that wall hanging!  Of course, the images are awesome too. Smiley  And that altered Guess Who is fabulous!  I would have a great time with that.

I received my package from LanaC today!  First, a picture of the whole thing together:

Along with all the Who goodies, there is an orange candle that smells absolutely heavenly, a baggie full of dum-dum pops, and another one with mini Hershey bars and Whoppers.  I'll see if I can get those to last all the way until next week, but no guarantees.

This is a night light shaped like the TARDIS, with a touchy-click LED inside.  It was originally going to be a plug-in light, but this works just as well and is probably a little less likely to melt the plastic.  (I have had horrible luck with plastic items melting...)  I couldn't get a good picture of it in action, but trust me - it's nice. Smiley

Here is a red-haired doll, all dressed up for a wedding - my own personal Donna, from one of my very favourite episodes with her!

These are two DW pictures, mounted on canvas with a crochet edging.  The first is a personal favourite from the depths of the internet, with lovely TARDIS blue edging, and the second is my favourite Doctor/companion pairing, with a pretty pink edging.

And last but not least, some cork-backed coasters!  These were what was bound with that lovely green ribbon in the first shot, and they feature all of my favourites!  From left to right, top to bottom: 11 and Idris, a Weeping Angel, some Daleks, Donna, the minotaur-dude from The God Complex, and an Ood!  Absolutely lovely.

Thanks again for being my swap partner, LanaC!

I'm so glad you like everything!  And I'm also relieved the glasses arrived in one piece.  It's really hard to take pictures of etched glass, so here's a bonus picture:

That blue scarf looks really luxurious, and the keychains are cool!  I like the simple (but stylish!) 11 hoop too.

7  Kid's monster chair! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by tabzilla on: August 10, 2012 04:20:30 PM
Our friend's kid turned one recently.  I knew he loves monsters (he growls when he's excited - so cute!) and when I saw this chair, I had a moment of inspiration and knew he would have to get a monster-ified chair.

First, the finished product so this thread has a nice thumbnail. Smiley

Modelled by our friend's cat, who conveniently matches the chair!

And here's what it was when I picked it up from the thrift store:

Modelled by our cat, who doesn't match the chair so much.

I approached this project more or less the same way I do everything crafty - I winged it.  I traced the original cover onto the back of my ridiculously soft fake orange fur, and went to town.  I'm not thrilled with the horns, but I couldn't figure out another way to work them into the seams.  I know they're going to get pulled on a lot, so I wasn't comfortable hand-stitching them.

The little boy was actually scared of the chair the first time he saw it!  I felt kind of bad about it, but he's since learned to love it.  Here's a shot of him lounging:

8  My first pair of socks... and they're bigger on the inside. in Knitting: Completed Projects by tabzilla on: March 02, 2012 02:02:40 PM
Okay, so maybe they aren't bigger on the inside.  But they are definitely TARDIS socks!  I knit them for my boss because we are Whovian pals.

They are my own pattern.  I started following the classic pattern from Ravelry, but I wound up using different yarn and needles, and I didn't like the top down approach to socks.  So I followed a basic recipe for toe-up socks with short row toe and heel, which was much nicer for me.  I followed the basic idea of the Ravelry pattern for the panels, but instead of using fair isle for the "POLICE BOX" (I was operating on fewer stitches) I just knit a black band and backstitched the words on later.  The windows and sign are duplicate stitch, another first for me.  I'm quite happy with them!

I received, and it is AWESOME!

First off, I managed to spread the love of Ood to my partner, rottenllittleboys.  Always a bonus!  Because damn I love the Ood.  And what could an Ood-loving librarian ask for that is better than this package? Nothing, that's what - because I got a cross-stitched Ood bookmark and a bonus bookplate! Requested especially by the two thoughtful Ood adorning my bookmark. Wink

The bookplate has a tree with its roots hugging a book, I love it.  I will have to find a very special book to use it in.  And oh my goodness, LOOK AT THIS BOOKMARK!  It has an Ood in its natural state!

It has an Ood with a translator orb!

And it is backed in a gorgeous blue fabric that reminds me of space!  It is really lovely, I would wear a whole dress made out of fabric that looks like this.  The photo doesn't quite do the colour justice.

Thank you so much for being my craft partner, rottenlittleboys!  I think we wound up being perfectly suited to one another. Smiley

Just wanted to share my beautiful little swap item!  Unfortunately, I only have my cell phone for camera purposes, so the pictures aren't stellar.

Here is the little package I received in the mail, all tied up with a lovely black and gray ribbon:

It was a tiny altered (Altoids?) tin, wrapped up in a note!

The note reads as follows:
To the Bearer of this letter,
In your hands you hold a Fairey Secret. One of the most Powerful secrets in the whole Fairey Kingdom.
Let me ask you a question. How does Fairey Dust come to be?
If you do not wish to carry the burden of this secret then read no further...
Many Tales have been told of this. The truth is a little less Fairey Tale.
But it is the cycle of Life as the Fae know it.
Blame not the Fae. Nor judge them. For they are a practical people.
Here is the Tale I pass on to you. Some believe Dust is produced by the Fae themselves. This is true, in a way. It's not produced by a Tree or Apple Blossoms or a Wish. It simply is Dust. When the Fae no longer have use for their bodies they leave them behind. The Magic happens when these start to mature and become Dust. This is the Secret.
So, when you sprinkle this do so with care. You are using what the Fairies left behind.

Delightfully spooky backstory.  I will never look at Tinkerbell in quite the same way again.

Here is a close up on the tin, which is decorated with a few lines of delicate chain and a Fae skull with red string bow:

And the tin slides open to reveal some Genuine Fairey Dust!

Complete with little bits of wing and such.  After all, it isn't as though the whole body would all turn to dust at the same rate.

I love how much detail you put into the story, and the details on the tin are just perfect.  It is going up in a spot on our Shelf of Creepiness.  Grin
