Soooo Excited and Then Shocked!!

Look what was sitting on my porch when I arrived home this afternoon....

Mary Ann over at a very mary design mailed this to me as part of the Paying It Forward project. It is an amazing bag made from a old and apparently very much loved quilt to hold my yarn and stuff. Plus it had a bright bold pink skein of yarn tucked inside.

This was the "soo excited part." I love this bag.This bag not only traveled by way of the US Postal Service, it is now going to take a trip with me to Honduras. I had already gathered my knitting materials ready to use in case we have to sit in the Atlanta or Miami airport longer than we are suppose to because of late airplane connections, or whatever. Instead of using my usual bag, which does not even come close to being as nice as this one, I'll have this gorgeous one. I know I'll have comments of envy from my sister-in-law once she sees it. Love it, love it, love it!!! Mary Ann is the best! Thanks!

Now for the "Then Shocked" part.....

If receiving the bag wasn't enough excitement, Mary Ann nominated me as a Rockin' Girl Blogger.


I am speechless. Thank you, Mary Ann. I never considered my blog as ever coming close to all the wonderful, well written and creative blogs as there are in blogland. You know....like yours, Mary Ann! Thank you, sweet, sweet Mary Ann!

I'm so glad you like it:) I'm not a master seamstress by any means, and I felt a little weenie sending it to you with all your genius sewing abilities. However, I'm happy to know it's going on holiday:) hee hee! I think you're quite lovely, Leslie.

I love your blog and all the wonderful projects. I wish I lived a state over, I bought knitting needles yesterday and want to try and teach myself while Josh is gone!
