I’ve just put my alternative 10th Doctor block for the Fandom in Stitches quilt up on dropbox and given the referring URL to here, so I figured I better pop the link up here as well so people can find it if needed.

I’m dreaming of getting myself back up to date here as I’ve been doing lots of stitching and sewing, what with the two stitch/quilt along projects and the odd bits and pieces for myself. I don’t quite know where to start – I may just link to my Flickr albums with some commentary and then try to go on from there. And hey, I even did some six months old mending, so I guess that means I’m on a roll.

My 10th Doctor

My 10th Doctor

I chose to do my own version mostly because, if I’m honest, I found the eyebrows on Jennifer’s block kind of scary. It’s still a great block, so check it out before jumping to this one.

If you do like this one, you’re welcome to download the PDF from here and stitch it yourself.

Starting the blockI know I’ve neglected this blog for ages – I’ve got so many things on the go the idea of keeping up with them all was daunting.

One thing I have been really enjoying is a Doctor Who themed stitch-along quilt being run by Fandom in Stitches (fandominstitches.com). I’ve stitched 7 doctors so far and I’m working on number 8 at the moment.

My Flickr album of my progress on the project is here.

The blocks have all be great, but since Paul McGann is my favourite Doctor of all 11 so far, I really wanted to have his block looking exactly the way¬†I wanted. So I made a pattern of my own. I’m rather impressed with myself that it worked out as well as it did. I’m maybe a third of the way through stitching it now and happy with how it is turning out.

I had several people on the FiS Facebook page asking if they could have a copy too, so I’ve turned it into a PDF and put it up on Dropbox. If you would like a copy of this embroidery pattern, you can download it here.
