Ornament #23 – Dr. Who Tardis {30 Days of Christmas Ornaments}

30 Days Christmas OrnamentsOrnament #23 – Dr. Who Tardis 01d0fca706fa673fb80699d27c43086030e72db701

According to Brownielocks (a website dedicated to Bizarre, Crazy, Silly, Unknown Holidays & Observances) today is Dr. Who Day.  November 23, 2013 marked the 50th anniversary of Dr. Who and so, it seems, November 23rd has been deemed ‘Dr. Who Day’.  Google marked the day with this fun Doodle:  Google Doodle.

Mike and I are huge fans of the series.  Mike loves all 50 years of the 12 doctors, whereas I’m more partial to the series that began with the 9th doctor.  My favorite doctor by far is the one played by David Tennant.

01d0fca706fa673fb80699d27c43086030e72db701I made two Dr. Who related projects today.  First, the ornament, a felt replica of the Tardis (the Dr.’s -Time And Relative Dimension In Space- ship).  It’s actually a British Police Call Box that’s bigger on the inside.  This is a fairly large ornament (2 1/2″X4″), but because I was using felt and needed to cut very detailed pieces, it needed to be bigger.

Here are some closeups of the fabric.

Item #45 – Knit 1 square per week for Knit-a-square.

Knit-a-square is an organization in South Africa that collects knitted and crocheted 8″X8″ squares to make blankets for orphans affected by AIDS.

This video does a wonderful job of describing the organization and their mission.


Question of the Day:  What is one of your favorite moments from any Christmas movie?
Mine is from White Christmas:

Susan and the General enter the ballroom to find two rows of soldiers forming a path to the stage.
Bob Wallace: [Stepping up to the General and saluting] Troops ready for inspection, sir!
Joe, Adjutant Captain: [at the General’s side] Just routine, sir.
Gen. Thomas F. Waverly: [“inspecting the troops” at the inn] I am not satisfied with the conduct of this division. Some of you men are under the impression having been at Anzio entitles you not to wear neckties. Well you’re wrong. Neckties will be worn in this area! And look at the rest of your appearance. You’re a disgrace to the outfit. You’re soft! You’re sloppy! You’re unruly! You’re undisciplined!
[pause]
Gen. Thomas F. Waverly: And I never saw anything look so wonderful in my whole life! Thank you all.

    I’m not a Dr. Who fan but I’ve got a friend who loves it! I painted a big block letter A like the tardis for her once! (Her name is Amanda, hence the A). Definitely my fave Christmas movie moment is from Elf, the scene where Buddy finds out the Santa at the store isn’t real and tells him “You sit on a throne of lies.”

  2. Pam Robertson says:

    Well I am rather partial to A Charlie Brown Christmas. Especially the moment that Linus gets up and straightens everyone out on the true meaning of Christmas!

  3. Cathy Powell says:

    The line “No, you’ll only shoot your eye out!” repeated numerous times in the movie A Christmas Story

  4. Kathy Ryan says:

    No favorite… I love them all that have a happy ending!

  5. Neil says:

    A Christmas Story when Ralph got his tongue stuck to the pole.

I look forward to your thoughts
