Package Arrived

I received my package from Calliope Smythwyck Wednesday but for some reason I was unable to upload my picture. It was an amazing package. The bag that she made was one of her own designs and is really quite amazing. She also sent two sock patterns, Crazy 4 Dying Hufflepuff Pride sock yarn, lantern moon needles, a really neat owl mouse pad, lucky black cat note cards, a beautiful bookmark, two seashells, bath salts, snitch wing stitch markers, a Hermione key ring, and two "sock" point protectors.

A little about me

I am a first year Hufflepuff and extremely excited to be starting at Hogwarts. I really hope that I will do well at Hogwarts because I have a tendency to work for hours at a time and completely block other things out and not realize how much time has passed in the process. This trait must come from my mother who is the owner of one of the largest Wizarding quilt shops, Magical Patches. She will work for an entire day and not realize how much time has passed. Though I do not quilt, I will knit for an entire day or read or whatever other project I may be working on becoming so absorbed with it that I will go for four or five hours without ever moving.

Term About to Start

Term is finally about to start and I feel as though I have been waiting for a long time since I am only a first year. I am really looking forward to starting. I am always up for a new challenge and am not the type of person that likes to not have much to do. I am constantly busy doing something, generally knitting or sewing.
