I received the most wonderful package from RosiePosie Cheesy I will post pictures when our internet is installed on Thursday. (Apparently my parents' computer can't read SDHD cards  Roll Eyes )

Thank you, RosiePosie!

I have also been having internet issues!  After being reassured that we would "just need to plug in the modem" when we moved on Saturday, it's been 5 days, 2 technicians, and a 3 hour install but I FINALLY have internet!  It's fun renting an old house...

Anywho, I received my lovely gift from Biochic!  It's a bed for my little dog.  It came addressed to him, care of me, which clearly confused my mailman (my dog's name is Ogedei).  It's super soft and the fabric looks like tooled leather... I love it!  I could not have chosen a more perfect fabric, really.

And now on to the photos, complete with puppy action.  He REALLY likes it when I put it in the sunshine.



(the following is just for gratuitous cuteness' sake.)


Thanks so much, Biochic!

No sign of my other package from Burgz. Sad  She sent before Biochic.  I'm wondering if the landlord checked the mail and has it stashed somewhere, even though she said it was fine if mail came for us before I moved in. I'll check with her tomorrow.

I hope she finds it... the envelope should have arrived 3-4 days after I sent. Undecided

Burgz, the package arrived!  Rather suspiciously, after sending my landlord a second email about it this morning, it just showed up in my mailbox... with no other mail.  Whatever, it's here!  And it's AMAZING!  Will post photos later on this afternoon... I was just leaving the house, and literally ran back in to let you know.

Yay! I'm happy (and relieved) Grin

When Burgz wanted to make my a "lacy crocheted item", one of the things I mentioned I might like was a colourful doily.  Can't get more colourful than this!  I love it!  So not your Grandma's doily!  It's giant too, at least a foot across (I didn't actually measure). 



Her stitches are so tiny and even, I don't know how you crochet types do it without going crazy.



(Sorry for the kinda crappy pictures, for some reason my camera doesn't like it.)

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet... maybe just use it like a regular doily (it would look awesome under a table lamp)... maybe frame it and hang it in my craft space... or maybe make a skirt to sew it too. Either way, it's excellent.  Thanks again Burgz, it was worth the wait!  Cheesy

I got rosyposie's package, and what a sciency surprise!

She made me these awesome biology-themed magnets:


And sent a cute little bag and a chain, which has some really cool details on it. I can't wait to use it for something!





Thank you, rosyposie!


Also to badpuppy, I'm sooo glad Ogedei likes his bed! He's so adorable! Smiley
