How Many Horcruxes?


And lots more besides!!

Hermione Bagnold is the world's best spoiler. I suspect at some point she has been affected by a midas charm as everything she touches turns into something wondrous!

Enough of words - I know you want pictures!! Particularly ones accompanied by lots of my trademark exclamation marks!! ;0)

The enormous box, which despite its enormity clearly also had an exension charm on it!

 The yarn - wonderful colours (my favourite) of KnitPicks Palette. Perfect for stranded jumpers, and I think there is enough here for a whole one!

 Venetian goodies - a beautiful ceramic carnival mask to hang on my wall, and a scarf/wrap. Hermione, I'm going to hang the wrap above my bed - it's perfect for that space, and will remind me of my dream of one day visiting Venice. :0)

Amazingly crafted horcruxes, and related bits and bobs. The yarn caddy is awesome - with a removeable strap, and I love the colours. Just perfect for me! A basilisk fang, and Tom Riddle's Diary containing wonderfully blank (unlined) pages for my design notes. Yay! The tiara (Ravenclaw's diadem?) will go to my niece for whom it is perfectly suited. There's also some wonderful golden snitch stitchmarkers, beautifully handcrafted by Hermione, for a Harry horcrux. Finally a lovely little pot of Wilton's food colour for dyeing with. Green of course!!  

 These flames of Fiendfyre are my favourite thing of all. They are the cutest, most adorable amigurumi thing I have ever seen! I love, love, love them!!!

3 knitted cloths, one with the Harry Potter logo, one with Riddle's Diary (with 'Tom Marvolo Riddle' knitted into it), and one with Ravenclaw's diadem knitted onto it. Very useful in my houseful of little ones! And some KnitPicks cable needles (wonderful - I haven't seen these before!), and a Knitpicks fixed circular. :0)

Finally, my very own diadem, a beautifully knitted hat. I've become a knitted hat addict you know, and love to rotate through my collection, rarely going out bareheaded!

So Hermione, how on earth do I thank you for this incredible generosity? I feel so loved by these gifts, and you've no idea how much that means to me. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you!!!
