Reducio 13 - Deathly Hallows

Today my angel package arrived. This is in association with my Reducio 13 swap. The theme was Deathly Hallows. Sadly, a little clay pot did not make it safely :(

Here are the contents fresh out of the envelope.

Look at all this loveliness! It's simply amazing, and I have no idea on who to thank. I have a Muggle name on the outside of the package, but I don't know which witch sent it :( A package of origami paper (I really like to make little cranes); a wee Nagini; Forget-Me-Nots (is this for Hermione in reference to her parents?); a VERY big ruby stone (my boys thought it was the Sorcerer's Stone, but I'm wondering if it's to represent Gaunt's ring?); a soap flower; and inside the purple drawstring bag was a gorgeous Ravenclaw sock and extra yarn and little needles (the yarn is so soft and the sock is absolutely beautiful!); four star stitch markers and matching earrings (origami no less!); and the piece de resistance ... (drum roll, because it really deserves it!) ... Hermione's beaded bag!
The amazing stitch markers, earrings, and bag up close. Isn't this bag phenomenal????? I coveted someone else's and never thought I'd ever have one as I am pretty sure it's difficult to make (and I believe that even more now that I've held it in my hands)! It's the most sumptuous shade of deep purple and I LOVE IT!
This is the fantastic mini sock. LOVE the amber colored yarn with this blue. They just shimmer and shine together. I'd LOVE a pair that actually fit!

Now, I just need to find out who my angel is to thank them properly!!!

Mickey Mouse Socks

I made these socks for the kids for a surprize trip to Walt Disney World in Florida. I had hoped we would get to see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, too, but we didn't :( Perhaps some day we'll be able to swoop in on our brooms to enjoy it for a day or so, but it wasn't to happen this trip. Sadly, the socks on the end, for boy #3, were too small and have since been frogged to be redone in a larger size.
