Big Swap Goodies

I took part in the Sprite Stitch "Big Swap" in the Spring. Unfortunately no one had heard from my "swappee" or get in contact with her, which was a shame, but the guys on the forums were great and I know a fair few people offered to make something.   Well you can imagine my surprise when a box arrived from America! Unfortunately it took a little longer than that to actually get the box because it was stuck at a ParcelForce depot for a couple of weeks while I tried to argue against the extortionate import charges I had received, considering it was a gift.  Hubby kindly paid in the end and I finally got my Big Swap!!!YAY!!!

The box from America!!

All was forgiven!!!
The first thing I saw was this sweet photo on the top of a note to say sorry for being so late.
Angry Bird Magnets
I have to keep these on the microwave, out of reach of little hands, who keep trying to steal them!! My 5 year old has already suggested I make some squishy pigs and we play "real life" angry birds....hmmm.....
For the next gift you need to see this image first
If you don't know who this is then firstly you need to go watch Firefly and Serenity. Now! As a side note I'm just going to throw it out there that we need to somehow scoop out the ideas formulated by Joss Whedon's brain in case anything should ever happen to him....Geek Rant over.
Jayne The Badass Teddy!
Jayne Hat!

I'm not entirely sure that I can really pull off the Jayne's Hat look BUT it looks adorable on one of my childhood ted's so is now perched atop the telly!
Portal Latch Hook Rug
Having done latch hook I can assure you that the time and effort gone into this would have been crazy! This is definately my favourite! I have been thinking of cross stitching some of the portal logos for a while, but it would never have occurred to me to make them in to a rug! GENIUS!

Yay! Totally worth the wait. It is a shame about the charges though, but I know it has been brought up on the forums since the Mini Swap is now nearly over, there will be a few more parcels arriving and departing with lovely geeky crafty things in!
