Those ant tubes are fantastic! Great idea!
And Greebo is really creepy. Thanks for the link. I have always wanted to make something with LED, maybe now I'll try...
I am jealous of your towel Smiley I have found a different seamstresses coat of arms on craftster, but without a motto. That motto made me smile Smiley A lot Smiley  CrisSews, where did you find it?

Discworld artist Paul Kidby has a series of t-shirt designs for the Guild of Seamstresses in his online shop that feature that motto and two others that are equally amusing.

He also has some Pink PussyCat Club (Ankh Morpork) t-shirts with "Staff" or "Bouncer" on the back!

I used the motto from Paul Kidby site and tried to follow that overall look and feel as causticmuse mentioned she liked them.  The hard part was deciding which of the amusing moto to use.

I took the coat of arms (which I found here http://wiki.lspace.org/wiki/Seamstresses'_Guild and changed the colors to match the pink and black theme I was going for. 

Ruby let me know if you do decide you want to make some LED stuff.  I only found a couple of places that sell the conductive thread and the smallest spool has something like 200 yards.  Since an ornament take at most 1/2 a yard....I have more than I'll ever use.  I can easily send you off a bobbin full.

Oh no, those links are just too good... I know why I didn't start any internet searches for discworld references, I would have been glued to the screen forever Smiley Smiley
Oh, that conductive thread... that's really tempting... I am a crazy mutant hamster who keeps everything for the future project when she will need it Smiley such a little bobbin of thread will hardly take space at all... I'll PM you!
Meanwhile soxymoron and I are getting the punishment for sending last: having to wait longest, aaargh...

Wow, great package! I like everything, but the stitched phrase just blows me away! Great quote, and so beautifully made. I love the colors and how the shades of blue work together. Btw, I always wondered how that quote is being pronounced in English Smiley
