Oh, I'm so glad I finally got to see this gallery! I literally couldn't find it! I'm so glad my partner, brondesjen received her package safely and likes it (whew, relief!).  Unfortunately, the postal strike continues in Liverpool (it's unofficial so who knows when it'll end).  Oh well, the anticipation builds and it'll be so good when it finally does arrive!

that sucks about the postal strike... what are you going to do for mail?  is this for england's local mail courier not like UPS or Fedex or anything right? 

on a bright note, everyone has sent thus far... now we're all just waiting on packages to arrive!!!!

thanks everyone for sending!!!!

GAH!!!  Thank you!!!  I could never figure out how to get the guide to stay up!!!! 

Glad to be of assistance!


Littlebluegirl, I'm crossing my fingers that the post office workers will get themselves sorted very soon! I feel so bad that I've had my package for ages and yours hasn't arrived yet!

Itscute, yes, it is just the royal mail, not other couriers - they've basically been out for a week and there are still 'wildcat' strikes going on. We just got a week's worth of junkmail through the door, I think it will take them a while to catch up  Angry

Thanks brondesjen (don't feel bad!! Smiley ) and itscute. There's meant to be more official strikes as of Monday Sad so there's no knowing when it will end. Oh well, I'll let you both know when my package arrives, I'm sure it will be worth waiting for!  Smiley

When I got home last night my package was waiting for me!  I love everything in it, especially the yarn ( all natural fibers are new to me) and a awesome etched bottle with Victor and Emily from the Corpse Bride on it.  It is sooo cool. Love It! Cheesy  So my camera ate the batteries in it, so  I will not be able to post pics till after a trip to buy batteries tonight.  Can't wait to show you guys all the neat things Babyskilz sent!

I got my yarnball today!

Here it is before the unwrapping:


(yay for my ball winder, that saved me lots of time unwrapping it!)

And here it is after undoing the ball. 


The pattern included is for a calorimetry.  Which I have been wanting to make, so now I have no excuse.  Wink
