Doctor Who Embroidery

I have a quick finish to share today! Not that the project was actually very "quick" at all, though - I started this last February and just finished a couple of weeks ago. Whoops. I guess my priorities are with quilts. I've also figured out that I can't embroider while catching up at shows because then I don't pay attention to the shows... and New Girl needs my complete attention (Nick Miller, hellooooo).

 Bad Wolf on the door! Plus, metallic thread for the "movement." The windows are purposefully a bit wonky.

Most of you know that the husband and I are huge Doctor Who fanatics, so I thought it only fitting to draft a pattern for the TARDIS. I don't know the "right" way to mark fabric before embroidering, so I just used pencil. Works for me and it's erasable.

The quote (which yes, I realize is spelled different below; it's contested) is from the 10th Doctor, David Tennant, who so acutely sums up what time is:



Now I have a nice wall of hanging embroidery. I'll be sharing some embroidery hoop decorations next week (they're elsewhere in the apartment, too :) ).




Sorry for the slightly strange-colored photo - this is near the sliding glass door. Will try to get a better one for next week.

Linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts and TGIFF.

Happy Friday! Allons-y! (<<<Doctor Who fans, click that link, you won't regret it!)

  2. Mine is Mindy Project - I couldn't get any work done while I watched this week because she finally kissed Dr Castellano! (Though Nick did pull of the awesome bday coupe ; ) Seriously, though, great work - I am not an embroiderer - it took me two days to just stitch my name on the name tag! lol

  3. Love Nick Miller! And Doctor Who! And so many other things!

    I think you can spell wibbly-wobbly however you want, since it's not (as far as I know...) in the dictionary. Also, it could be the British spelling vs. the American spelling! Same with timey-wimey. In short, the spelling of wibbly-wobbly isn't a fixed progression of letters... ;)

    Bad Wolf! [Now how did that get there? It just appeared!]

  10. If you ask any veteran embroidery enthusiast where they get their supplies, there's a big chance that they will mention the name of the Embroidery Library. It is like a one-stop shop for all your embroidery needs and it is very popular among embroidery lovers. learn more
