I'm curious why starting at the 9th Doctor? I've, admittedly, never watched any of the DH shows though considering its prolific influence here and otherwise I should just give it a go, but considering its history and long run I have a hard time figuring out where's the logical place to start. I'm one of those people that has to start from the beginning so I can get all the references and whatnot lol.

So is DP. Be warned - starting from the very beginning means over 600 episodes, from memory - 26 seasons (201 Gb of downloads if you can't find a comprehensive dvd collection with episodes in order, like I couldn't) and that's just to bring you up to 1989, where it "ended" - then in 2005 they started up again with the 9th doctor, which is why most sane people start there. Apparently it doesn't really reference the old series at all. I wouldn't know - I'm not allowed to watch the new one yet.

My crafting this past weekend has not been nearly as productive as I would have liked it to be.  Sad  My embroidery and my crochet are irritating my wrist.  It doesn't hurt to actually do the craft but afterwards it hurts to bend my wrist...  soooo not a fan of this!!  :/  Hoping to work on the second afghan square or the back of the embroidery tonight.

Have you tried wearing a compression like brace while you are working?

So many good things posted.

Alwaysinmyroom, I love the idea of a rewards card holder.  I always lose mine in my bag.  Oh and yeah...spoonflower fabric would make me work awful hard.  Even just a fat quarter.  

redstar13, that hoodie rocks.  Aria is still excited about it.  Cheesy  Thank you so much for such a thoughtfully made gift.  

sheepBlue, love the trophy!

Nooo...I love the canvas board notebooks.  So cool.  What lucky gift recipients!  

I have 2 more projects to add but they are swap items.  My 50s list is up to date; however, most have pics but the last 4 swap items.

Nooo - If you want to get into Doctor Who you should totally start with the Ninth Doctor (2005 - Christopher Eccleston), it's on netflix instant.

Number nine was my first and you know what they say, 'You never forget your first doctor.'

Hmm, where was I? Oh yes, crafting away at my OTDWT swap. Smiley

Indigo - love the weeping angel!

noooitaremybirthday & sheepblue - you can start from the new doctors (#9), you don't have to go all the way back to the 60's  Smiley
There are still references back to the older episodes but not enough that you have to have seen them. There are also some episodes missing from the original series (although you can get the soundtracks for them)

Always - My list is up to date but I haven't posted pictures for everything yet

Okay, sorry to dump this all at once, but here's my January completions!

1. Old men's button-down shirt into an apron.  I saw the picture on Pinterest, and decided to make one out of an old Hawaiian shirt for my dad, who lives on his boat and is currently in American Samoa (he sailed there all by himself, I don't think I could ever do that!).  Long story, but boaters... aren't always clothed (why create laundry when water is scarce?) and like to cook and eat Spam.  So some coverage, I thought, would be a good idea.  It didn't turn out badly for my first attempt!

2. Tassels for some jump drives.  My bellydance troupe has choreographies to learn, and when you go through that many DVDs it gets expensive (and wears out DVD burners).  So everyone got a $5 jump drive, sufficiently blinged, to use over and over.

3. Walrus.  He was a WIP from last year, and is mine to have... for no real reason.  Just trying to use (at least once) all the cute patterns I've bought over the years.

4. T-shirts bags for my (ever increasing stash of) bellydance belts.  Easiest little bags to make, you use the bottom edge of a t-shirt and you have a built-in channel for a drawstring.  These were from an old t-shirt of my husband's (hence getting three bags out of one shirt!) and the bottom edge was pretty frayed so I did stitch around the top to reinforce it, and I think I like the look.  I'll probably do it in the future even if they don't need it.  They're not fancy (you could probably do some freezer paper stenciling, if you wanted) but they do the job.

5. 3 Dotees for a swap.  I am not going to post the pics here because my partners have not received yet, but I will post a link to my blog entry:


Don't look if you're in the swap with me and want to be surprised!

And a finished project, but not:

I love this little teapot cross-stitch, and the stitching is done, but it's not a finished piece because... I don't know what to do with it.  It's on a little bit too small of a piece of fabric to put in a hoop, so I was thinking the front of a needlebook or tea wallet or...?

Chrissews---I love those birds. I think I need them. Lol

I still can't find my camera cord, so no pictures yet.

I finished my pillow, i am so happy with it. The front is a basket weave, I am so suprised how easy it was.

I am up to 3 out of 50.  I'll definetly be making more pillows. They are so much fun to make and I need some for my couch. I will also start on another quilt. My mom gave me a kit about two years ago and I think its about time to start it.

I have a bird phobia, can't have them in the house but those are cute & I love the tail feathers  Smiley

OMG!  I have a phobia myself, and everyone laughs at me!  I had a cocktail fly at my head when I was 14 and my relationship with birds has NEVER been the same.  I have a client who has a parrot-like creature and every time I go over I am in fight-or-flight for the entire home visit!  Bird phobics unite!

(But I agree, those crafted, inanimate birds are super cute!)

Smeddly, that little teapot would be perfect on a tea wallet! And that apron is perfect. I'm always looking for hawaiian shirts for DH when I go thrifting. Noo, I love your notebooks. Sheepblue, that trophy is great!  Hee, I tell my DD and DH I need a tshirt that says, 'I'm the Alpha Female.' The trophy made me giggle, you're so clever!

My Sherlock Holmes partner just received, so I can add some more projects to the done list. Two decorated boxes, a framed reversible decoupage, a necklace, and a couple of small things-a stickpin and painted votives. I had fun.
I uploaded the pictures I took hurriedly before I mailed this, but hers came out a lot better than mine, so I'll just link to the post.
