Doctor Who House

Hello Beautiful Readers! Welcome back to my WIP Madness Corner! The next project I want to talk about is what I’m calling Doctor Who House.

I started this cross stitch on 08/09 of this year. The Pattern I’m using is “In This House…Dr. Who” by Stitch Area.  This is a Geeky Doctor Who piece. LOTS of Doctor Who sayings that I LOVE. I recommend this for ALL Doctor Who fans who like to cross-stitch. Stitch Area’s Etsy Shop can be found here.

I TOTALLY expect this project to take me a long time, as I have other projects I need to finish in the remaining part of 2020. I’m going to try to balance out my crafts. We’ll see how this goes… lol.

I’ve gotten the first Dalek mostly done and the line of text directly under the midway point of the piece. Here’s what it looks like!

Update 9/7:

I have finished up the Daleks and the first line and I’m working on the second line. I REALLY love the way it’s looking so far. I’m trying to savor it and take my time with the project.

Update 12/22:

I’ve been working on this cross stitch since I last checked in. I’ve mentioned it in several episodes of my podcast, so I have some progress photos, which is pretty awesome. What do you think?

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

Hexi Blanket

Hiya Beautiful Makers! The next thing I’ve been working on this year is something new. I called this project simply “Hexi Blanket.”

I’ve been making 5 round Hexis using a size US G, 4.0mm hook. I’ve been separating out the number of Hexis I’ve been making each month and counting the yardage that way. I’ll show them off the same way below.

 

August/September’s Hexis: (966 yards)

October’s Hexis: (345 yards)

November’s Hexis: (920 yards)

December’s Hexis (so far – 12/15 was the last time I made one): (92 yards)

The minis I plan on using for the Hexis are being held in my 12th Doctor Who bag by Whimzee Stitches that I bought at SSK2018. You can find Rick’s shop here.

I have a few more to go until I have enough for a blanket, but I love the way that they are coming out so far. What do you think?

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

The More You Know:

Details For Ep 100.

  1. Monday
    1. There are several videos I’m planning on releasing on Monday of the 100th Celebration week. I was thinking of putting these videos up at 12 Noon EDT on YouTube with the Live Premiere feature. Would anyone be interested in joining me at this time? Or is there another time you’d prefer? The reason I ask about times, is solely because I would like to post the show notes for each episode at the same time.
    2. On top of that, I’ll be recording my whole podcasting process starting with the audio recording to the editing of the final video. I’d like to do a Zoom call starting at 10AM EDT on January 4th. I anticipate this whole process taking me over 4 hours. Some of the stuff I say during the break in segments is comedic gold, if I do say so myself, and SHOULD be recorded… I know alot of it will be me staring at the screen and yelling at Audacity (the program I use to record) and the Editing software I use to edit the video portion of the show. There’s really no need to stay in the Call the whole time. If you hop in late, that’s fine. I have a filter on the Meeting room that will allow me to accept those that want to come in later on. I’ll do so right between the segments and during any breaks I may need to take while editing (as I probably need to head off to the Lu and to get snacks at several times, cuz I get a bit snacky while I edit… Dunno why… ) Don’t worry if you don’t want to be there the whole time either. I understand. Everyone’s got stuff to do. I fully expect to release a full behind-the-scenes video later on. If you’d like to join in the Zoom Call, please DM me on Discord, comment on the FB post I put up in the group, or e-mail me at silversdreamland@gmail.com. I can send you the Meeting room and password that way.
  2. Tuesday
    1. Q4 Wrap Up video & 2020 Yearly Along/Other Stuff Round Up
  3. Wednesday
    1. Hey everyone!!! I want Wednesday of this week to celebrate this awesome community we’ve made around the Podcast. To this end, I’m going to need YOUR help!!! I would like to make a video that includes everyone’s favorite FOs/WIPs for the past year or so. Everyone is allowed up to 5 of each. Please send me these via DM ASAP. I hope to finish collecting these by Sunday, January 3rd. Please and thank you!!!
  4. Thursday
    1. Ep 100 will go live. I’m hoping to do a live premiere for the video.
  5. Friday
    1. Behind the scenes is live today.
