Periwinkle, the owl, brought me a package

My kit arrived! It is fabulous.

I was told to follow the spiders, so that is what I did.

There was a card and silly Poppy apologized for one of my wonderful gifts. She didn't think it was good enough since it was only her second knitted project. I love it though!
Here is some yarn she sent so I could make a pleated purse.
And of course yarn for Dobby
I must be a true Gryffindor since I found the sword of Gryffindor (a niddy noddy)
And Baby Fawkes! How cute is that. He has some cute stitch markers too!
And here is an iPad pouch that Poppy wasn't sure I would like, but look at the colors. I love it!
Some roving that I can dye! How cool is that?
And I really love this gift that came direct from Tom Riddle--his diary of course and nagini! I'll never lose my place in a book again.
There are two adorable patterns. Baby booties an a very cute cap. My husband says he can't wait to see how the cap turns out.
And Mrs. Weasley sent me some Toffifee! Can't wait to taste it, but I had fudge when I was out earlier today so it has to wait until tomorrow.

And even more hand made gifts! Moaning Myrtle's bath kit--a nice smelling bar of soap, a wash towel, and a soap bag. I love it! And there is some wonderful smelling tea.
Here is my wonderful kit--everything all at once

Thank you very much, Poppy Pluot! Periwinkle will rest in the owlery and then leave for home tomorrow.

Calling all owls!

I need an owl to delivery a pretty parcel. Penelope's package is all packed up and ready to fly via owl to Wyoming.

I think Penelope will like what she finds when she opens the package, at least I hope she will. I've had fun making things to put in there!

On another note, I believe I'm going to win Nanowrimo again this year! Yay for me!
Last December 1, the day after winning Nanowrimo 2009, I decided to continue writing 500 words a day for an entire year. I have really enjoyed writing my 500 words a day and have not skipped one day, not even when I had to have a couple of minor surgeries. I'm going to have to find a way to celebrate on Dec. 1.

HSKS 12 winding down

The term is almost over. The send period started last weekend. I should have my kit sent off to Rodeomom early next week. Waiting on one more item to arrived before I can box all the goodies up and send them soaring with an owl.

This term seemed to speed by.
