Owl Post!

So on this dark and stormy day one brave owl landed on my doorstep with a package. After drying him off and giving him some owl treats I tore into it and look at the awesome,fantatasic , lovely perfect package I got!
This is the whole package:

When I opened the box the first thing I noticed was it's fragrence , it smelled devine! And that was because Intersia included some lovely potions ingredients English mint and lemon essences mint for my tea ( I can't wait to try it out and today is the perfect weather for it!) as well as Hot and Spicy Oregano. I Love oregano, one of my favorite meals is pasta with sauce and I'm always adding extra oregano. The potions couldn't have been more perfect for me :)

Intersia also sent me a few charms: Slytherin snakes! These are such cute stitch markers , I'm already trying to think of names for them! These where inside a cute little tin, I'm so happy I have a place to my stichmarkers, I've been using a box that a stationary set came in.

Then there was the yarn *squee* Intersia really spoiled me there I got two skanes os Knit Picks Gloss In a lovely purple color it's 70% Merino Wool and 30% silk. She also sent me a Suri Merino Plymouth Yarn in an awesome Slytherin Green.

Intersia also included three patterns for me to chose from: The Strangling Vine Scarf, The Devil's snare sock pattern and a Trust Snape wrist band.

Also included with the kit was this made od awesome bag I've taken a few picturesof it so you can see the print on it:

One of my favorite this she sent me was a new little friend named Ganini, a distent cousin to Nagini. He's very talkative and I'll have to brush up on my Pareltongue, but I love him dearly.

and Last but not least A snitch measuring tape! I didin't have one that I could keep with my knitting before getting this one, I used to have to grab the one from my sewing kit.

Thank You Intersia for a truly marvalous and well thought out kit! I love everything you sent me, thank you for making my summer camp a wonderful experience!

Hiya all,

Sorry I've been quiet this week, I've had an awful cold and I haven't felt up to much of anything. it was made even worse by having to go into work. Lucky for me I switched shifts with a friend of mine today and so i have the evening off. I love Saturday evenings off because it means I can watch my favorite Brit Comedies on my local PBS station. Squee!

I honestly haven't been knitting much of anything lately since I'm still hard at work on the baby quilt and my costumes for Dragon*Con. I know most all of you will stop looking at this journal when the swap is over but I'll try and put up some pictures from the con so you can see what all of the crazyness is about, especaily if I get to meet Tom Felton!

Oh my spoillee has recievd her package and she says she likes it! (Yay) I hope she puts up pictures so you guys can see it. If not then I'll post some of mine.

Hi guys! I've just had a very lovely weekend (for me the weekend is Wed. and Thur. because of my work schedule). My friend and I decided to do a Lord of The Rings marathon so we watched all of the extended editions back to back. :) I know you are thinking that is an excellent way to get in some knitting time, alas I did not knit. I'm working on a baby quilt for a friend and I'm running out of time. This is a mock up of what the whole quilt will look like (except mine will only be 9 squares total)

and here are the squares I've compleated so far:

Now I'm off to work, It's a tax free weekend in my state which means for the workers it';s worse then Christmas at the the store!
