Where's the stolen trophy at??

Well, with winnie's latest package she included the trophy thief's possessions. All of these items are things that Draco malfoy would carry. And they were items that he used in the room of requirement. I'm guessing the thief hid the trophy in the room of requirement, hogwarts, UK. (I'm trying to be vague because there is talk of the trophy being in a region that may not be in the HP world)

Winnie's Secret Letters

At last we get to find out what Winnie has been searching for on her travels & what all those mysterious bold letters were all about. Those letters were clues to the item she was searching for. And that item was :
Stolen Quidditch World Cup Trophy

Yay Winnie!! Thank you for recovering the trophy!!

The owl arrived!!

I'm so excited!!! I got my package from Cassandra Grubbly-Plank. She did such an awesome job putting it together.

I opened the package to find an awesome pattern by our very own Emma Wigworthy - Luna's Moonlight socks & also a pattern for Viktor socks!

Then I pulled out these & they cracked me up!! Quidditch Goggles!! I'm wondering if they will fit my dog, like Doggles. If not I think I might just wear them when I ride my bike.

The bag that Cassandra made is absolutely awesome - it has a pocket that buttons on one side. Tucked away in that pocket were copies of Quidditch Through the Ages & Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them

The other side of the bag also has a pocket & Cassandra attached some very awesome zipper pulls with quidditch equipment on them.

Now for more from inside the bag, very cute mini sock blockers!

The yarn is fabulous!! I really love it! Cassandra sent me an extra skein of Sunshine Yarn from her stash! She is truly awesome!! The colorways are Bellatrix & Blood Red:

A quidditch card game, tape measure, stitch markers & Every Flavor Beans:

Quidditch tin with very cute magnet (the tin is filled with sweets - M&Ms, Lindt chocolate bar, & Pop Rocks):

I can't get over how awesome the bag is! Cassandra did such an amazing job. I've already got a project tucked away inside the bag. Here are a few close-ups of the inside. There is a place for my needles (see the candy canes - so cute), pockets for stitch markers, tape measure, etc. And there is even a special place to stash extra yarn:

Thank you so much Cassandra!! I really love my kit!!

Winnie's Dec 7th letter

Hmm, well I haven't been to church in a very long time. So, I'm just guessing that the first Christmas was in Bethlehem.

Winnie's Dec 4th letter

I think Winnie is in Romania - Transylvania specifically. She seems to have had a close run in with a vampire recently, but luckily she is ok! Phew that was close Winnie. Be careful!!

Mysterious letters, which I'm guessing will spell out the thing that she has been after on her travels:

I'm back on my broomstick (almost)

I'm back home & starting to feel a little better. At least I can pick up my laptop on my own today!! woot!

Thanks to all my friends in HSKS for their kind thoughts & packages! All the support has really helped perk me up!
I received a lovely card from Wisty that she signed on behalf of everyone in HSKS. And a package from my captain Clara arrived today - just in time for my birthday tomorrow!!
Thank you Wisty, Clara, & all!!

I think I'll call the owl Barnaby after one of the founders of the Cleansweep Broom Company.
