All of the presents

sammy myths bookI came home yesterday to all of the packages! Well, two, but they were both exciting. The other thing was a letter from the bank. Not so exciting.

The first parcel was a wonderful book from the lovely Sammy – myths & legends! She knows I’m currently knee-deep in random mythology for No Man’s Sky, so it’s going to be so useful – plus for any future projects, of course…and generally…I love myths anyway and to be able to look everything up is just grand. It’s a nice hefty collection and my fingers were itching to dive right in!

And the second parcel was from my partner in the Big Geeky Craft Swap, Meghan, who lives in Canada – her Tumblr is KnitsAndNonsense and she’s also on Instagram! The theme was Superheroes, and I LOVE the choices she’s gone with.

Here’s everything…

I love the llama. He’s glittery. Everyone needs a glittery llama.

And then a close-up of the backs of the fabulous gloves! She knitted them during her lunch breaks, and they are SO AMAZING. The photo doesn’t really do the colour justice, either – they’re a beautiful collection of blues.

My package has only just gone off (I ran out of one colour thread…) and while I do have photos of my crafty thing, I’m going to wait for Meghan to get it before I show you all!

This was part of the Big Geeky Craft Swap, and it’s been a lot of fun choosing – and making – and receiving – things! Keep an eye out for the next one if you think it’d be fun to join in.
