I FINALLY got my package from the mysterious vortex of the postal service! And it is SOOOOOOOO AWESOME!! I got a beautiful carved/painted wall hanging It has a celtic knot and says "meleth" which is elvish for love! I know just where I am going to put it!  and a wonderful knittng needle roll that MATCHES my sewing kit (sorry I don't have any solo shots for that) and a bunch of stickers and post its and little beaded bracelets for my daughter ( Who kept yelling "take pictures mom so I can have it!!") and some stickers for my son who said "cool!" which is a lot when you're 11 and a HALF!  lol And this really cool pendant. It's made from found objects I can't take a picture that does it justice. It looks like something Galadriel would wear!  It's really cool!
The theme is Lord of the Rings. It's totally awesome!! Thank you my secret FOC you are amazing!
I'm kind of a big deal.

I received from my super awesome FOC today!!!

lasandri was asking me all sorts of questions about my brother, now I know..

I got 2 packages in the mail, opened up a long skinny one first and it was a rod set, i was like.. ehhhh, ok!? and I opened the other to find a box, i opened the box and there was this maganificant thing (i dont even know what to call it) of my brother.. it has pictures of him and firefighters (he was a firefighter) and fire. and its just wonderful:

Here it is all hung, took me forever, i kept making it tilted! Smiley

a few pics of him close up:

the one of the top right is me and him when we were little and the one on the bottom left is him in his coffin

more pics of him:

top left is him and his ex, bottom right is him all geared up in the forest working

and the box it came in, i didnt even know the box was painted until i picked it up to take pics, i was opening it upside down everytime LOL

Wow what a touching gift hertrigger.

Here are my photos, eventually, and they aren't of a very good quality either  Undecided

Here is the awesome needle roll, complete with zipped pocked! And the candy she sent me Smiley

And the coolest patterned bag in nice colours, the picture doesn't do it justice, It truely is massive though and has pockets! Tongue

And the best bit of this package, so my cat thinks, an orange kitty blanket for my ornage kitty Smiley

He really does love his blanket.

Thanks sooo much FOC!

hertrigger, what a wonderful gift you received!!  That's such a loving gift, and I'm so sorry for your loss...

Sarah-, I like the needle roll and purse, but especially the kitty blanket!  I need to make a new bed for my pugs, and perhaps a matching blanket cos they love snuggling.  Perhaps I'll applique a couple o pugs on their future blanket!

I can tell you, Fall is composed of

1 part dead fish smell
1 part wet leaves
1 part arctic chilled air (not winter chilled variety)
2 parts crunchy walking
a pinch very cold rain
some apples you picked yourself
a few very still moments
a good deal of inner reflection

Wow. WOW! That's all I can say. Secret FOC, I wanna be your neighbor, your best friend, your pet sitter...everything!  Grin

Ladies...I give you The Coolest Pillows of All Time.

Please, don't push, don't shove! There are enough pictures to go around. But unfortunately for you, there are only enough pillows for ME!!!

Ok, I know I'm being a wierdo, but I *completely* freaked out when I opened this package. These are so me, it's utterly ridiculous. I LOVE them.

The backs:

And a closeup of each:

Look at the craftsmanship! The stitching detail! The fabric choice! I literally spent a few minutes just turning them around and around and admiring all the different fabrics.

Seriously, whoever you are (and I'm starting to formulate a few ideas...  Wink)...THANK YOU! These are so amazing!  Grin

My Secret FOC also continued her mysterious note habit...I got a note that was written in relief, and had to be rubbed on with a crayon to read it. How clever! You sly dog, you...  Grin

Edited to add:
The pillows are based off of some crazy log cabin ones from mt wists, by the way.

And the dog in the center panel of the one on the right looks exactly like one of my three dogs! Coincidence? Hm...
