Cross Stitch Crazy Challenge 2015: Day Seven

For day seven I decided to start on another Wee Little Stitches pattern.  It's one of the three I chose for the challenge. This is "The Doctors" representing all the different doctors from Dr. Who.  I'm very excited about it.  If my ideas become reality, I want to stitch the other Dr. Who patterns, the companions and the villains on this same piece of fabric but I'm not totally sure they will all fit, so we will see.  But I got a small start on the TARDIS anyway.

I'm using a gorgeous piece of linen from Picture This Plus--Crystal Baroque.  It has gold flecks throughout and I think the way it's dyed and the sparkly bits look very cosmic, so I'm hoping it will turn out OK. 

Any other Dr, Who fans out there?  I'm sadly very behind on the series right now and haven't seen ANY of the new season with Peter Capaldi as the doctor.  Having dropped cable I don't have quite as easy access to the shows through BBC America so I need to find another way to watch.  My local PBS station has started showing the series on Saturday night starting with doctor #9, Christopher Eccleston, so I've been watching those again and it's been really fun to rewatch the older episodes.  PBS was how I first watched Dr. Who when I was kid!

Gorgeous fabric Crystal! I used to watch Doctor Who when I was a kid too. I haven't seen any of the newer ones.
