1. The mail comes late these days. I checked the mail at 2pm or so, expecting a further summer deluge of junk mail. But, lo, a box.

2. First of all I could not find whom it was addressed to. I had promised someone I wouldn't look at the customs thing... but there's no address. Wait! I'll just look at the right hand side of the customs thing. Yes. It is for me.

3. Upstairs to my neighbour's place (in case of explosions). The box, it seems is partially open already? Curious postman? MMB setting the detonator? Hmmm..

4. Rip, tear, rip. Who needs knives. "Who?" says my neighbour. "You know," says I, "the one I give hot chocolate to."

5. Out comes.... all the Xmas cards I'll ever need for the next 2 years (I don't write much) and.... more! The little cushion things! I love them! I'm not sure what they are, but I love them!

6. Reading the box custom thing I see that they are Xmas decorations!

7. Neighbour: "Are you sure she's married?" "Yes," says I. "These are handmade?" she asks with some amazement. "I'm pretty sure," says I.

8. Then. And now! Zing!

It was opened? Those pesky penguins were trying to escape!!!

I scoured the stores and internet for a penguin pattern. It is counted cross-stitch, that I made into little cushion thingies. I love the fabric I found for the back as it looks like snow and the black fringe adds more fun. They are Xmas decorations that you can hang on your tree or walls, or just fondle!!!!!

Yes, I am married. You're a great friend. The cards were a bonus I found on sale after Xmas and immediately thought of you!

I originally was going to make 4 penguins, but after how long they were taking me (I sewed during my lunch 1/2 hour) I decided on just 3. The fisherman has a lot of thread and took twice as long as the snowball fighters!

I'm so glad you like them.......I do!

Yes, I know yer married. She's very suspicious. I imagine she's worse than a jealous girlfriend would be.

Yes. I think I"ll just fondle them.

Thanks again!

I know where I've seen those penguins before!



They're the Armies of the Penguish Civil Wars from Khurasan Miniatures!
That conversation is coming back to me now! Sneaky!
