That said, I have this friend. A new friend who turned 30 yesterday. I thought I'd whip him up something special for his birthday since we were getting together tonight. I searched around the internets and found something that seemed awesome to me (for one who doesn't know the Dr.)
See, awesome, right? I decided to have a go at it myself...a little embroidery, a little felt, and looked fast. And it was! It took me longer to pluck the press n seal out between the circles and spokes. I also had fun working with the felt and combining it with stitches. It's a messy little thing, but, let's be honest. He's a boy and I think Tardis doesn't mind a little mess.

I'm hoping my friend will like it - I mean, probably embroidery isn't a dude's top idea of a present. If this doesn't make him happy, maybe the half dozen chocolate chip cookies I'm bringing along with it will....
UPDATE: He said he liked it...so I'll believe him. And it found a place of honor on his mantle.
