I'm glad so glad you like everything!!! Sorry the bag is so wrinkled. Yea I put together that "It Takes Courage To Have Hope" cross stitch kit b/c I had some extra floss and aida to throw in. lol. its a lovely kit with 12 different stitches! I'm working on stitching it AGAIN for one of my coworkers that is recovering from Lymphoma


My hometown has Quaker Oates so we could always smell when they made cereal. Crunch Berry days were THE BEST!!!!

I actually got this last week, so apologies for being so lax in posting pictures, but thank you so, so much to rockinwithrammstein for my mini swap gift!

First up was this adorable Snoopy cross stitch (there is no possible way to go wrong with me and Peanuts)...

Next up was this awesome Dark Mark illusion crochet scarf (and you did an amazing job with it, rockinwithrammstein!). The yarn is wonderfully soft, and smells nice, too.

Last was this super pretty journal (with even prettier internal pages!) I've been studying French for close to a year now (informally), and I'm at uni studying Creative Writing (formally), but I'm not sure I have the heart to use such a pretty journal! I might save it for something cool, like plotting the 100,000 word creative writing project I'll be doing in my final year.

Thank you so much for everything, rockinwithrammstein :) I love all of it!

ETA: I don't even know what's up with these sideways pictures. They're fine when I look at them in their files...

Also, regarding my swap gifts to others: both are complete and ready for their new owners. Discounting the possibility of a sudden, improbable windfall, I will be sending them early next week after I get paid, since I'm just about flat broke right now (curse you, internet sales...)

Okay, my mini and mega swap gifts were finally sent out today! The lady at the post office gave me a tentative estimate of 10 days before they each get to their destinations, so both my swappees should hopefully have their gifts by Christmas :)

Awesome Dr Who poster. We moved into this building back in March and I have a giant white wall that I never figured out what to hang on it - the poster is perfect.

The bunny is checking out BB. She also rolled him around a bit, until I got out my camera.

I also have a few new stitching projects. What's so funny is that when I was working on BMH's present, I wanted to make her a necklace charm but couldn't find a stitchable charm like this, so I ended up painting it. I'm really excited to make the bracelet.

(hang on for 2nd post...)

There is also some delicious looking candy. And the red and green box came with instructions for how to eat it :)

Thank you for everything. I really like it all and am exciting to work on the projects.

Though I have a problem now... I'm trying to get back to work and Bullet Bill is just glaring at me from the across the room...........

We live right down the street from Who North America (about 20 min drive) and we went over there to pick up our pre-order of The Curator action figure a couple of months ago. We got to check out their small museum and there large warehouse of Whovian (+ some other Sci-Fi) stuff. I found that poster as a magnet and totally bought it along with a dalek action figure to go with The Curator. LOL!

YAY! I'm so happy it made it and I'm glad you like everything. The poster looks awesome right there! :) I had forgotten about the bunny; I hope they like the plushies to roll around with. :clap: I'm excited to see what you'll make out of the jewelry things :D
