End of May... working on Fair items and Prison Swap

Whew, it has been a while since I posted! I have been working on a swap recently, and also working on items for the Fair coming in July.  Well, the swap is finished, and OH I was so fantastically spoiled it isn't even funny!! Here is the main item I was sent...
It is ridiculous how much I love this coat! I have seen some like it on Etsy, and they are REALLY expensive, but, my swap partner, jabbaslavegirl, MADE this one for me! It is made all from recycled sweaters! It is so much fun to wear, I can't wait until it is colder so I can wear it always! Here is a shot of the back... see the very long hood? so fun!
 
oh this is not all she sent me! Heavens the items I received!
I am crazy happy with everything!
I will post later the gifts I made for my swap partner... mydamsel.
And tell more about the fair items!!

Must...have... this.... TARDIS DOILY

Hey folks, I found this on Pinterest and it blew my mind! She is selling it on Etsy for $700.  I could never afford that. But I want this so much, I am going to figure out the pattern. I have decided not to do it exactly the same. I want the center different and the little bits between the TARDI (plural) to be different.
I have some other crafting and a swap to do before getting down to this, but maybe by next year's fair I will have one. I would never sell the item nor the pattern, of course, but it is just so awesome, I have to have one.
It is really funny, before I started making my 3D Tardis a year or so ago, I was fiddling with the idea a making a doily like this. I even sketched out all the Tardi in a circle like this. Then I had the idea for the 3D one, and put the doily on the back burner. Well, now it is on the secondary burner on low!  haha. I have figured out most of the Tardis pattern and have started the windows. SO MANY WINDOWS! I will do 18 white ones, 9 beige ones, and 45 blue ones!  I want the lower white windows she has to be beige, as on the real Tardis it is a notice sign and not a glowing window.
I hope she sells it. It is so awesome. If only I were rich...
