Crochet for Tsunami Relief

I just want to thank everyone who has placed a recent order.  I have used these funds to make a donation to GlobalGiving’s Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund via Paypal.  I am committing to donating any and all funds from orders placed during March and April to this worthy cause.

The crisis in Japan is ongoing as more aftershocks roll in and people whose homes were destroyed begin the long process of rebuilding their lives.  Please convo me on Etsy if you’re interested in making a donation to Japan Relief by commissioning a project.


Another Doctor Who

Right around the time that I received an order for the 10th Doctor I received a request for the 2nd Doctor. Being a newbie to the world of Doctor Who I needed a quick crash course in the various doctors and what qualities they possessed.  Very engaged buyers helped make this task enjoyable.

The challenge with the 2nd doctor is that much of the footage from that series was destroyed.  Very few images survive, and nearly all of them are black and white.  The buyer and I put a lot of cooperative leg-work into identifying fan-produced colorized images so we could agree on clothing color and style.  Tracking down the sonic screwdriver was another matter altogether.  It’s worth noting that the object in the reference photos are not the sonic screwdriver.

Doctor Who Fans Rejoice!

I’ve taken on the Doctor and lived to tell the tale.  Doctor who?  Exactly.  This is a commissioned piece, the tenth Doctor played by David Tennant.  Am I pleased with the results? Oh you betcha.
