All We Need are the Jelly Babies!

All We Need are the Jelly Babies!All We Need are the Jelly Babies!Because we have the most amazing versions of the Fourth Doctor‘s scarves I’ve ever seen. She has created both These beautiful bead work creations are by Espana Sheriff as she’s known on LiveJournal and in the Crafty_Tardis Community where she posted these lovely works of Doctor Who bead craft.

Her first one is a reproduction of the more famed one we see the Fourth Doctor wear in his adventures. The second, is the red and purple variation Tom Baker wore in his last year as the Doctor.

To quote later incarnations of the Doctor, these pieces are just fantastic and brilliant!

A Hoopla of Robots!

Over on Craftster, there has been a great big HOOPLA! Actually, this Hoopla has been going on for a couple of years now and has not lost momentum like so many other crafty trends. The term applies to any sort of needle work framed in an embroidery hoop regardless of size.

I have to say this particular set of Hoopla is some of my all time favorites. It combines R2D2 and C3PO, needlework and felt. How awesome is that??! Loveandasandwich stitched up these wonderfully detailed pieces bringing our favorite ‘bots to life. She even gives us a bit of insight as to her creative process towards the end of her original post.

Fantastic work loveandasandwich! The Force is with you!

Come to the Dark (Chocolate) Side

Since yesterday’s post was a duplicate of an earlier one (oops!), I decided to atone for the mistake by posting something delightful (and not a repeat). Voilà the following awesomeness.

Damn, I would totally join the Dark Side if work parties involved cakes like this one! Talented baker Bernice Camlin (aka Smurfesque) has not just created a Death Star cake that both looks awesome and sounds like it tastes amazing, she has graciously posted a tutorial so even those of us who aren’t professional cake artistes can make our own. At some point in my life, this is going to happen. I will make it so! Wait, that’s the wrong sci-fi. See, I’m just that excited about this cake.

Stained Glass TARDIS

Look what I have found for our Whovians to drool over today.

This delightful stained glass TARDIS made by Alexandria (Xandrigirly from Craftster).

She says:

“This semester, I’m in Stained Glass II, which means that after two panels and a little simple box, we got to pick more complicated/design our own 3D stained glass pieces! I was originally planning on a lantern type thing, but I changed my mind and decided this would be a box to keep my ever growing candy stash! And since I’m a dork, it had to be a TARDIS! Anyways, here it is, please excuse the crooked lines and such of a beginner!”

I’m sure you will all agree with me that it is amazing and she should be very proud of it.
