1  Re: Holidays Cookie Swap Gallery of Yumminess in The Swap Gallery by lizzyfer on: December 15, 2008 07:47:30 PM
I wasn't expecting  my package today, but when I got home, I saw a package on the little table under my mailbox on my porch.  I thought it might be a present I ordered for a friend - but no!  My cookies from Lethargic had arrived.  Poor things, they sat there all afternoon and much of the evening, lonely and cold and a little damp, as we have been swimming in rain all afternoon.  The postal dude put them up against the house, though, so they were well sheltered - the cardboard was just a little damp, and the contents were fine.  Fine?  Delicious...

I brought it inside, and Boo here had to take a look:



Since it didn't smell like tuna, he wasn't much interested:



However, it DID smell like a confectionery, so I was interested.  Inside, I found a great oven mitt, to protect my fingers from future endeavors with the oven, a lovely little note, and a cool wrapping paper envelop full of recipe cards:



And underneath all that, I found this gorgeous tin:



I really like the cookie tin.  I just bought wrapping paper on the same theme - graphic and bright red and bright white.  Smiley  But more than that, I love what was inside.  My cookies arrived all intact.  You know that they were well packaged, as these beautiful meringues were unbent, and unbroken:



Next to the meringues, I found these fabulous looking pumpkin spice cookies:



Oh, and beneath these, there was more, much more.  First came a layer of chocolate crinkle cookies.  I've tried one of these - I couldn't resist - and they are to die for.  And then, underneath the chocolate cookies, I found still another layer, this time of the festive cranberry noels:



I have a terrible dilemma, now.  I cannot decide which cookie to eat next!

Thank you, Lethargic!

2  Book of Kells Cross Stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by lizzyfer on: October 29, 2008 08:48:30 PM
Hi!  I'm new to posting, though I've browsed for, uhm, a while.  I do some needlework - mostly cross-stitch, but generally only when I'm watching television.  I've really enjoyed the forum, and wanted to post something of my own.  I went to Ireland for the first time last year (I live in the US).  Although I didn't have much time in Dublin, I had to see the Book of Kells.  It was pretty incredible.  Afterwards, I picked this cross-stitch kit in the Trinity College library gift shop.  It's an illuminated letter (a G) based on the illuminated letters in the Book of Kells. 





I worked on it off and on over the course of a couple months & am very happy with the results.  The pattern was designed by Celtic Cross Stitch in County Mayo, Ireland, on the web at http://www.celticxstitch.ie.

Hope you enjoyed!
