I received from the generous and thoughtful and talented, @Lynx2Lancer on Thursday. She has been patient with me posting, so here goes:
First, the bag. I cannot say enough about this bag. It’s scrappy, quilty, big, and exactly what I asked for (a tote with Velcro handles so that I could attach it to the car handle so I could crochet while in the passenger seat while DH drives). She got it perfect! Here it is:
I just have to point out some of the special things she added to this tote besides what I mentioned: a yarn feed, a plastic divider (which is great because I often put my waterbottle in my tote, now it won’t condensate on my craft), the front zipper pocket was made with fabric I sent her in one of the Xmas swaps on the C site, it’s a flat bottom bag, and the inside is ORANGE!!!
Second, the wallhanging. L2L has posted somewhere here on LC how she had several quilted pieces leftover from some project for the school she subs in. She had made a tote with some of them that I liked so much I offered to buy it from her! She said she was keeping the tote . But then look what she sent me:
A mini wall quilt made from the same quilted piece!
And as if that weren’t enough…
The fabulous twisted fabric wreath with the mirror! Sooooffft variegated blue yarn! And my own piece of LC jewelry!!! (I was so hoping for one!)
I literally sucked in my breath when I took the items for this swap out of the box and did not take a breath for a moment. L2L is so freaking talented and generous and thoughtful and all good things and I feel very grateful!
THANK YOU SO MUCH, L2L!
P.S. Please don’t mind my just woke up face in the mirror!
