I thought I might never see the internet again…
That is, I’ve been busy and haven’t gotten a chance to post anything. However, I have a small moment, and here is what has been going on:
The in-laws visited this past weekend, and we did much antiquing. I scored a first printing of Rousseau’s Confessions (Volume 1), in French (like, duh), from 1782. I paid not a lot for it. Well, actually, I didn’t pay anything for it; it ended up being an early birthday present. Other than the deterioration of its leather spine, the book is in excellent condition. I’m very proud of the find.
We also ate at many tasty places, and I was very full all weekend.
And I gave my father-in-law this:
Mmmmm. Hot Dalek action. It was the only place well-lit enough that I could take a decent photo.
And here is the father-in-law with the Dalek:
He was absolutely thrilled, and I was thrilled that he was thrilled, and he was thrilled that… oh, never mind.
The pattern comes from here and is very easy to do.
Soooo…. yeah. That’s pretty much the weekend, summed up. We got some furniture, and I made a lot of headway on the bear I’m knitting for a friend. More on that tomorrow, methinks.
Perhaps you shall have to learn to knit so I can teach you the Dalek-making… Hmmmm…
Arthur and I agree – the Dalek is AWESOME!!! At first we thought it was a cozy, but stuffed is super adorable. =)
Thanks! It was a lot of fun to make (except for the bobbles, but now I’m really good at making bobbles).
I think I might make several more…
I absolutely love your Dalek!!! I am going to have to make one for my husband. He and I are both die hard Dr. Who fans.
