Wow! What great stuff (of course)! I love the charms on the bracelet, and the two little girls with their cut-outs.
I received from Missing Willow last week, but I hadn't sent to her yet, so I was resolved not
to open the package til I did. Well, I was pretty much finished then I had Another Brilliant Idea
, so rather than wait and be late, I sent my original package and am hoping to finish up the ABI tonight so it can get into the mail tomorrow as a bonus.
But I just couldn't wait a day longer, so I opened my package anyway. Wheee!
Here's the whole lot:
The two dish towels:
I hooted with laughter when I saw these (you'll find out why when you get your package, Connie.)
According to the accompanying note, the embroidery machine is a new and barely-explored thing, but you wouldn't know it from this brilliantly done pair. (For those who don't know, our cottage is a Mongolian yurt, and we have a mouse problem there.) These are now the yurt dish towels, of course.
Another Gorey-esque item: the biggest mug rug I've ever seen - almost large enough to be a placemat. This will get lots of use. You can't see it very well in this photo, but it says "Gashleycrumb". This will be baffling to those not in the know!
And a little whimsical doodad, with Gorey images, related ephemera and a lot
of character. A tiny, perfect work of art.
And finally this badge. Will anyone get this "Twilight" joke a year from now? Who cares - it's recent enough to still be very funny!
Thanks for all these treasures! I hope you enjoy what I've sent you half as much as I like all this!
