All the Doctor Who… villains, Timelords, Companions  The scarf, the Tardis, Cassandra, even a fez.  Look at these squares. Look at them.

Look WHO It Is!

Geek Charming - Doctors

Ever wish you could travel with the Doctor? Or more than one Doctor? Well now you can! These little mini Doctor’s can go anywhere with you; on your keychain, around your neck, or in your Tardis (aka the bottomless pit that is your knapsack). These little guys are amongst many mini-me’s, and other geeky accessories, created by cosplayer Dex Morgan of Geek Charming. You can also check out her facebook page for more geeky goodies and awesome cosplay!

New Geek Crafts Writer: AmyLynn98 – A DIY Jedi Wanna Be

amylynn98

“Always in motion is the future.”

–Yoda, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

Good morning, fellow Craft Geeks! I’m AmyLynn98 and I get to join all of you as your new Saturday morning poster. I enjoy crochet (a lot of the kinds of crochet and sewn items I make tend to be toys for friends and family made from my own patterns), sewing and card making as my main crafts, and now I can show all of you the really creative and crafty people out there that share our love handmade goodies. My favorite item that I’d like to take a crack at myself are these awesome TARDIS Chuck Taylors!

Some of the “geek” things that currently turn me on are Spider-Man (Peter Parker), Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew), Batman, Star Wars, Star Trek (I called myself a Trekkie before Trek was cool, and was proud of it), Doctor Who (my Doctors are #1, #4 and #10), Stephen King (I have a dog named Cujo), “The Big Bang Theory,” “Face Off” on SyFy, Abraham Lincoln, the Terminator, and most anything Halloween-related (more about the holiday than the movies, but those were good too). My plans for Halloween this year is to make a Gonk droid for my yard, finish off my Jedi costume (I’m a DIY Jedi!) and fix my full size guillotine.

Since I have to act like an adult most times, I work as a volunteer coordinator for a local hospice. I was able to start sharing my love of all things yarny and crocheted with our patients by providing them with handmade blankets. Volunteers up and down the East Coast help me to make them, and they all rock for it!

See you all on Saturday mornings…after the good cartoons are over, of course! Last one to the TV is a rotten egg!

Introducing Marsha

Hey all, I will be your regular Friday morning blogger so I thought I would throw a bit of introduction at you first. I am a long time crafter, currently focused on knitting, spinning, and bead working to name a few things that I get my own crafty hands busy with.  So I’m sure geeky knits will be prominent.

I tend to roam the internet as One Geek to Craft Them All, so that should point out at least one geeky place that is precious to me. I’m a fan of comics, fantasy, mythology, magic, cosplay, and plenty of others. To be more specific things that own a place in my heart, include but are not limited to, Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Harry Dresden, Game of Thrones, Star Trek, Supernatural, Harry Potter; you know the basics. The list goes ever on.

In my day to day life I put my Master’s in Industrial/Organizational Psychology to use as Research Associate at a management consultant firm.  I can feel your eyes glazing over from here so I’m gonna stop there. It’s for the best really. My closest friends only vaguely understand what I do. I like statistics, I play with them for a living, is close enough, really.

I’ll see everyone bright an early on  Friday and until then I leave you with a handmade Tardis dress I have been trying to talk myself out of buying by Lex from  Smarmy Clothes.

Marsha can usually be found, roaming twitter as @1geek2craftall or blogging at One Geek To Craft Them All. She thinks cheaters never prosper, unless it’s the Kobayashi Maru. Then cheat like there’s no other way to win.

Dr. Who Craft: Doily of Rassilon

Dr. Who Doily of Rassilon

I have to admit I’m not enough of a Whovian to completely appreciate this project, but I do love the look of this crochet Doily of Rassilon. I think a set of them would be gorgeous framed.

According to Wikipedia:

Rassilon is a fictional character in the British science fiction television series Doctor Who. In the backstory of the programme, he was the founder of Time Lord society on the planet Gallifrey.

Reading the Wikipedia entry I see that there’s quite a bit to this Rassilon character. I really need to watch more Dr. Who. Do I start at the very beginning with Season 1, or is there a particular season you suggest I start with?
