Ok, now I did have pics taken the day I recieved but everything else kind of caught up with me.
But they are here now...
this is obviously after Id opened the box, there were no customs stickers or anything explaining what the hold up was so Ive still no idea why it took almost 3 months to get from Canada to NZ
a beautiful friend card. Ive a thing about textures and this card feels awesome under my fingers
this stunning scarf! tlh878 isnt new to knitting, she learnt as a kid, but didnt keep it up so is a wee bit rusty. The scarfs made from a really soft kind of yarn and is squishy and lovely. Im thinking of making it like a shawl pin because the usual way I wear scarves (scrunched up) would ruin it. I love and and wanted to wear it out last night to my mates memorial (killed in the Pike River Mine blast) but its kind of Summer here
Item two was photos that I didnt manage to get pics of! But from them I worked out her display pic is one she had taken at her sisters wedding with blonde and pink hair! (at least, thats what it looks like) Im hoping to pick up a scrap book or photo albulm so I can keep the photos safely
Item 3 was a book and bookmark. Ive not started it yet, Ive been tempted to put down the book Im reading now (a really rubbishy sci-fi one) but its next on my reading list. The book marks quote is awesome and so very true!
Postcards! I have a fondness for postcards. These will def go in the scrap book or whatever with the photos
Buttons! Also pictured is tlh878s major achievement
the buttons are her fav craft supply and a fav jewlery item. Which is awesome. They are really cute! and the political one is from when she was seeking nomination for the New Democratic Party!!
how awesome is that!
making greeting cards is tlh878s fav way to relax, what an awesome idea! She is really talented too! They are all really textured and I dont want to give them away
they might make their way into the scrap book as well
Pillow! Related to her fav sport- soccer (or football) its felt and squishy and Im really glad going through the wash didnt ruin it! Ive got it on my armchair and its really comfy! plus, it has a bonus point of having no pink on it so my cat Ceefer wont steal it!
her sister always makes her laugh and it was her that made this next item. Its supposed to be a coffee cozie but tlh878s sister didnt gauge it first and it came out a tiddy bit large lol
it says "hot" in binary code
this bag is huge! tlh878 doesnt like the plastic bags from the supermarket so she always trys to remember to bring her own bags. If they are all this size...! wowsers
this last item has an awesome quote on it "well behaved women seldom make history" and its so true. Its up on my wall now, looking beautiful.
Thankyou so much for everything tlh878. Ill have your second package on its way to you after Christmas. Im sorry the NZ Post kept it for so long!
