As intended, I didn't start painting at kick-off time of 6am GMT. I waited until 9am. I was only doing a few small bits, but waiting for various steps to dry (also going out shopping in the morning and having a slightly longer than planned afternoon nap) meant that none of the items was finished until just before 9pm. However, they are all done now and the draft post has been submitted.
Some more shinies arrived today:
Love that pink parcel tape!
More pink inside!
It seems that Annie has included some extra bits in my package - I only ordered one of the badges, didn't order the sticker and there is a second pack of "shin whackers". I haven't had a chance to look closely at the figures yet, but they look as though they will need very little clean-up.
The next groups of figures are out on the table, ready to go in the morning. The chances are that I won't have finished them all before I head down to Sussex fro Christmas, but I will have made good headway.
