Yay, glad you likies.  I made two sets, one for Morning Star (who switched spots w/ me) and for my partner, Pumperthedinosaur. 

Here they be:



It was my first time using an iron-transfer paper thingy, so I wonder if they came out a bit crackly.  And, my powers of zigzagging in imaginative ways remain strong  Wink A better close-up is available here, so you can see the wording: http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/6734/620/1600/PBpatches.jpg

Oh no!!!  I shouldn't have looked!  those patches are awesome!  I haven't gotten mine yet, but now I get to think about what needs princess bride-ification.

I did get an awesome package from fyberduck last week though (couldn't post due to technical difficulties).

the goods:  my fire swamp survivor's souvenir box (how clever! the underside of the box has a map of Florin and Guilder) a jersey yoinked from the Dread Pirate Roberts himself, a vial of swamp sand, my very own "fire spirit" (that made me laugh), pirate iron-ons to arrrr-ify my own duds, and an adorable set of ROUSes - if adorable can be applied to an ROUS.

I'm sure the ROUS's mother would think him adorable  Cheesy

Fyberduck--that is an amazing set of items.  So clever!  So swamp-y!

Great package! I love the t-shirt!

I just had to share this... knitters will probably know The Yarn Harlot.  Just guess what movie's quote she worked into a recent blog post?  Wink

Thanks!  I tried to make 'em scary w/ sharp, pointy, teeth - but it just didn't work  Grin

Yay, di nienti.  I was a bit annoyed with myself for finishing them late, but finally subdued my sewing machine  Wink

(I am completely giddy and incapable of coherent posting, sorry!  Too excited!) 

Okay, it has to be said - I feel like fate saved the best (for me) for last!  I got home from a very longlonglong day to find Pumper's package on my coffee table.  Which, to my complete and utter delight contained:



Of course, I ran around the house shrieking for awhile.  My brother tried to take the package away from me, cuz it's just too cool, but I won.

Here's the Vizzini Bag, which immediately made me feel superior  Wink (how did you know I've been looking for a camera bag??  You're so gifted!):



To top it off, I'm a Classics major, so everyone in the department is going to twitch when they see it!!  I was so excited looking it over when I saw that it had, OMG, these inside:

Stitch Markers!:



I am a knitting freak.  My knitting buddies are going to just die when they see these (esp. since they think I'm crazy for swapping, ha!).  I just can't explain my delight over them.  How on earth did you make them, Pumper??  They're so cool!!

And, then, also in the box were Chibi Dread Pirate Roberts, who "transforms" into Westley when you remove his mask (OMG).  He's also being held up by Pumper's homemade Miracle Pill Soap (seems fitting, doesn't it?).  The soap (chocolate scented!) was actually what attracted my brother to fondle my box first:



And the Chibi's little home is a Princess Bride box.

I am so cuddling my goodies right now.  I have to take them into Costume Construction tomorrow and make everyone green.  Thank you so much, Pumper!  I the think the best part of the revealing was my father and brother asking "where did you buy those?"  "how did you get them?"  Ha! to them.  So cool!  (going back to freaking out).  Thanks again!!  (Oh, I'm posting larger photos on my blog for the curious) 

SQUEEE!
