KIT Arrival

 I've had a very long week I have been working at both of my jobs this whole week Subbing at an elementary school during the day and working retail right after I am crazy tired and stressed  and so you can imagine tonight, my first evening off  when I got home to find a sweet little owl waiting for me at my door how happy seeing him made me. This little guy came on the perfect day. After taking the package off his leg the package  (I  waited only long enough to get my camera ) I opened to find a postcard

This lovely pattern
 This beautiful bag, I wish the picture showed it better it's really lovely
 Isn't the lining pretty? And you can see more goodies inside! They where a beautiful handmade bracelet and stitch markers in Slytherin colors (best house ever!)
After that I opened the thing that made me Squee so loudly the cats ran from the room And I mean   it I can't tell you how thrilled I was to find this little guy in there. I may be taking him to Dragon*Con with me to get some pictures with other costumers holding him. :)
Nest to him are some of my favorite treats PG tips tea, which I love love love and Jelly Babies (which are the Doctor's favorite candy) I have to admit now that these got opened and gobbled straight away. I made myself a cup of tea grabbed the jelly babies and the adipose and  enjoyed a bit of quiet time.

  But wait there is more! 

She included this awesome awesome ( did I mention awesome) yarn.  See the label ? How cool is that? :)

I also got the Yarn Harlots latest book  which I can't wait to start reading and tucked inside it was a lovely book mark

 And that's not all  I almost forgot the really cute dragon fly beads that match the bag.  So Thank you thank you thank you Andromeda! This Kit was so wonderful and very much worth the wait! I love everything you sent I couldn't ask for a better kit! Thank you SO much!

made it to the weekend!

  I've made it! It's been a crazy kind of week,  I subbed for a kindergarten class yesterday, first class for me this year. This morning I had to go into work (I useally have evenings on Saturday , but that means I get to watch Brit Coms on  PBS! Yay!   I sent my post owl off with my swap package on Thursday, I hope he gets there in a timely fashion. last swap he got distracted  and took a little bit longer then he should have.  I've gotten three of my four costumes all ready to go this week, i just need to finish a few things on the other one. I'm excited about the convention, I might  try and get the Phelps twins autographs this year. hmm now though I think I'm going to change out of my work clothes and snuggle with a good book, I hope it starts raining!

slidding in at the last minute

 Sorry about the lack of posts I'm up to my neck in projects!  My kit  is coming along very nicely it'll be hard to send it off, I want one myself!  I've been busy  finishing a costume for a convention coming up in September (yes I'm that kind of Geek:))  I'm very excited about it as it's my first time making everything  from the ground up. I've been blogging about it in my live journal  and I've created a blog   just for my costumes because of it. 

 To my  Head of Hut I'll be posting kit picture tomorrow after I  get some batteries for my camera, I compleatly forgot to pick some  up during work tonight, we where crazy busy as school starts back this Monday in my area.

And now I shall retire to bed and read more Tintin  until the cats persuade me that it time to either scratch there heads or go to sleep. :)
