I finally received my awesome package from vincenvanbuck and let me tell you, it was worth the wait! Posting from USA to Aus normally takes about two weeks, but this was took almost four to get to me - and the envelope was pretty beat up, so I guess it took the scenic route. Luckily everything inside was in one piece.
Firstly I found this awesome painted and appliqued bag featuring the ever-iconic Companion Cube and covered with quotes from the delightfully snarky GLaDOS.
Then this dear little cross-stitched coin purse, featuring rupees (currency from the Legend of Zelda games) on one side and some Super Mario coins on the other - the stitching is so neat, I'm impressed!
And finally, a hoopla for my wall. I opened it up to find this -
- a blue 'onion' from the Pikmin games, which is basically a home/spaceship for them. The daisy on top even spins like a propeller! But even better, when I lifted the onion aside, I found...
This awesome (and again, impressively neat!) cross stitching, of four little pikmin with the sampler-esque words "onion sweet onion". I think I'll have to find room for both pieces separately on my wall so I can admire both all the time.
So how's that for a first swap? I know I was impressed! Thank you so much, vincenvanbuck
