(click images to view larger) Yesterday I had an unexpected day off work. Toward late afternoon I started to feel that I needed a project that didn't involve sitting in front of my computer, so I pulled out my bag of yarn and went to work. I ended up coming up with my own pattern for this little 10th Doctor doll. **Spoilers for season 4. Highlight to read. (This is to keep Jenn from getting spoiled...sorry Jenn, you need to watch!)** This is the Meta-Crisis doctor from the end of season 4. In the show, his shirt is actually closer to a maroon color, but I worked with what I had. I am very glad that this particular version of the doctor doesn't wear a tie as I didn't enjoy making the tie on the last doctorr. He's smaller than the original one I made, and I think he turned out a little better. I put him next to the Puffs tissue box, to show his actual size. I'm quite fond of him. :) I plan to make a little Rose to go with him as well. In fact, as I just found out that I'm not working today either, I think I'll be making her this afternoon.
How do you introduce yourself in just a few sentences?
First and foremost, I love Jesus! I crochet and read and cook and bake and sing. I obsess over crazy things like Doctor Who and Superman. I spend as much time as possible with my boyfriend and his amazing kiddos. I'm the world's most awesome Auntie (other than my own Aunties of course), and I miss my nephew and nieces like CRAZY. I write about whatever is flying through my head at the moment. Sometimes I don't write at all. This is my little corner of the world, and here we do things the PirateDiva way. Which basically just means MY WAY! :)
