Generous Gals in Blogland are everywhere. Here are some examples that I have personally enjoyed this week:
1) A few weeks ago I was cruising through various blogs and was the first to comment on ie's entry. She sent me this gorgeous green purse all the way from Norway.
2) I order a Japanese craft book from from Alexia (Craftopia) and she sent me a fabulous piece of fabric as an extra surprise.
3) To Knit or Crochet swap and Fabirc Square swap have also given me various of items to play with. Thanks Katie for organizing these swaps.
This is just a small example. Amazing and wonderful. When I return to school in just a few weeks from now (ugh!), I will have a lot to share with my buddies. Thanks to all.
Now...what have I been up to????? I am a new great aunt. My niece had a little fellow yesterday morning. A few of the bibs and burp clothes I have made this summer will be used by that little guy. I told my niece she will be my guinnea pig....test these items out and let me know if they fall apart....hopefully not!
I also had completed another patchwork purse in pastels. It is hard to see but I even included a fabric flower. HeeHee....I love it! Can you see the bubble gum machine in the back of the picture? That machine used to be in my father's grocery store. It still works. Don't know why I am telling you this.
Lastly, I never posted the market bag I was working on for my son. It is finished and has been mailed to him.
Sure hope it will hold a few items when he shops the corner grocery store in Philadelphia.
