Wow, really beautiful stuff in both those packages. The little maypole bag is my favourite!

Finally, here's the fabulous stuff I got from Eeyore_witch. Some of this only makes sense if you know that my partner Ian and I have a patch of woodland outside the city on which we've put a Mongolian yurt as a sort of cottage. Eeyore_witch learned this from my blog and turned that into wonderful yurt-related stuff.


There's a lovely framed photo of our yurt (I've been intending to do some sort of "Home Sweet Yurt" picture all year!), an "I heart My Yurt" t-shirt, a decorated camp blanket poncho (which Ian immediately claimed for himself) and a crocheted witchy hat. I'd asked for a pointed hat in my questionnaire, and this is exactly what I had in mind, though I didn't say so. It's a perfect fit, and so comfortable.


Close-up on Home Sweet Yurt.

And then there was a whole pile of extras, including a candle and painted rawhide candleholder, a tiny LED camp light, and a package of homemade fire starters. Those will come in very handy on rainy days! And chocolate, of course.

We were out in the woods today and took these action shots by the yurt.


Here I am proudly wearing hat and shirt.


And here we are by the fire, with Ian cozy warm in "his" new camp blanket! (Much needed today because it was windy and quite cold.)

Thanks so much for all of this. So much thought went into it!!

This round has been hands down, one of my favorites. Everyone made such beautiful and thoughtful things and I've been lusting after more items then ever. Cheesy

I can't wait until the next round now. Wink

I'll enter the Litha round but I'm scared I'll have to sit out the next 2 rounds! Sad I'll be there anyhow but just for watching... maybe I'll find energy for the card part ...
