That candle burner is beautiful, and the stitch markers and pictures are lovely! I especially love the map, it is so wonderfully done!
I am wondering when I should start to worry my items haven't got to HowdySailor yet
It's been 15 days which is pretty much the longest postage time from Aussie to us so far. did someone say you had memorial day?
Yeah, I think Memorial Day Weekend is probably why it's taking so long. What Murple says is true, Canada to US and vice versa is very hit or miss. I've sent packages to Canada that took weeks and weeks to arrive. I was surprised my package to Murple got to her so fast, I'm used to it taking longer.
Today my package from Murple finally came! It might have come yesterday, but we didn't get any mail yesterday because there was a truck in front of our mailbox all morning. However, the package was well worth the wait!
The first thing I saw was the note Murple wrote on the package:
And then inside was...
An adorable Bilbo Baggins, with his very own hobbit-hole door!
The door is just right for Bilbo to relax in front of.
And here is Bilbo on his own. Look at his little round belly, and his fuzzy feet! He also has a lovely green cloak, very sensible for when you are traveling the Misty Mountains and Mirkwood.
Thank you so much, Murple! You've been a great partner!
