Fourth Doctor Bookmark
by ~Keladry-Lupin on deviantART

This is something I've been working on for the last several months, and I've finally put on the last stitch and washed and pressed it. I just liked the scarf, so I found a knitting pattern for it online, used the software I got online to build the chart, and started stitching in my spare time. I have plans to make a bookmark for myself at some point (either Jeeves or the Ninth Doctor), but I have a queue of four right now, so I won't be working on that any time soon.

Disclaimers (this is fanart, after all) and specific information (floss colors, etc.) are at DA.

Dear friends for whom I've made similar projects: if/when it's convenient, would you please take a photo or scan what I've sent to you and e-mail me the image so I can catalog them? I lost all my scans of past projects when my laptop died, and the data can't be retrieved.

Post edited because of reasons.

Here's my List of Happiness on Tuesday, thanks to a Monday holiday:

1. The holiday allowed Mom to come home Sunday night, even though it was an Aunt Millie weekend. Mom surprised me with takeaway from my favorite Chinese restaurant, which is an hour's drive from Long Beach, so I don't get it often. On Monday, we saw The Avengers, and I fixed tacos for dinner, which is Mom's favorite.

2. We saw the last three of Donna's episodes of Doctor Who Sunday night. There are things about Donna I'm not particularly fond of, but she is a brilliant character and an excellent foil for the Doctor.

3. Yay, Andrew Scott won a BAFTA! (I was rooting a teensy bit more for Martin Freeman, but I'm delighted Andrew got it.)

4. I had artist's block Saturday and Sunday, but I forced myself to work through, which is so unlike me. I'm working frantically on the final draft now.

5. I'd never heard of I've Never Seen Star Wars before I saw the episode Jo Brand hosted, and Stephen Fry was the guest. I was in agony when Stephen labored and sweated over the IKEA desk, but everything else was cool. His relief that the ear piercing wasn't as awful as he'd feared was downright adorable, and I wish he'd been able to keep it.

I also saw Rory McGrath's and Clive Anderson's episodes via YouTube, which were fun, too.

6. I'm enjoying reading The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, though it's slow going because of deadlines (see #4). There's another overdue library book to add to my tally, and shame on me.

And that's about it at the moment. Happy Tuesday!

So I went to http://fuckyeahsherlock.tumblr.com/ and found this.

It's too big to be a desktop background, and Mom doesn't approve of slash, but I am so saving this. Forever.

Edit: Just realized Benedict looks vaguely like an ex boyfriend. (Enough that they could be brothers. And Hugh Laurie could actually be their dad!) Now I like him a tiny bit less. Or at least, I like Martin a little more.

wheeeee!

It's the Monday List of Happiness with a fic rec tagged on for good measure!

1. I'm working the election on April 13 with Phil. It's going to be a very long day, but I believe him when he says they have a good time, and extra money is always a good thing!

2. I keep trying variations on a recipe I first made a month or two ago, and they always turn out delicious. Nom nom nom.

3. LOL at Dara O'Briain's drinking game on the stand-up DVD I bought a few weeks ago. He and a buddy watched the show, and every time Dara said a key phrase, they had to have a beer or a shot, and they were completely pissed by the end of it.

4. Singing, singing, singing: the choir in our congregation is really good, as is a combined choir I'm participating in. The music is gorgeous. We're all revved up for Easter!

5. Leap of Faith, a Doctor Who fic rec: )
