Nike loves me!

No, no. Not the shoe people! The Greek goddess of victory!

Lindsay has just informed me that I've won one of her really cute beaded ornaments~ Yay! I love winning stuff!

A while ago, Annie (who appears to be reading every stitching blog under the sun!) finished off a beautiful Altoids tin. I commented that I've never seen one IRL, and she sent me one! Isn't that just wonderful of her? She sent me cinnamon flavoured ones. I ripped it open in a mad frenzy, popped one in my mouth, and almost died! They're very spicy! I was going to gobble them all up, but apparently I can't indulge my piggish self...

On a really random note: I was drooling over Autumn Winds (my new start for 2010) and it occurred to me why I like this so much! My subconscious tells me that it's Snape as a girl, or a very effeminate boy! Can you tell that I watch far too much anime with pretty boys who look like girls! Now I'm even more anxious to start!

The mints do take a bit of getting used to. But I'm a big fan so maybe you will be also. Mostly, I now buy them for the boxes themselves it seems. Glad the metal box didn't get seized at the border!

Autumn Winds is a gorgeous design. But I'd never have the patience to do an HAED. Good luck with it.

Snape as a girl! Too funny :) But, what a gorgeous design--you'll have many, many hours of stitching fun with that one!

Congratulations on your giveaway win--so nice to win, isn't it?

LOL The cinnamon ones aren't to bad but the peppermint ones will sear the lining of your mouth off!

LOL! That's wonderful :o) My DH has an allergic reaction to them. Have no idea why.
