it's here! it's here!
my beautiful bag has arrived from stephanie and i am so inspired and happy! of course i had to open the box no sooner i brought it in. and i'm pretty sure i was giddy with anticipation. i still have a big grin on my face!
when stephanie invited me to do this swap, we chatted a bit about what pattern to use for each other. she mentioned she was thinking about the multi-tasker tote by anna maria horner as she not yet seen me make it. how did she know i had been eying that pattern for some time, but hadn't yet bought it? :) i love it. i love the size, the straps, the easy access pockets on the outside and two smaller on the inside. and i love the fabric she choose. the pink, orange and brown are so rich and fun! wow!
i told you she was a hippie chick!
of course she included a few little yummy treats tucked inside...a beautiful crocheted zipper bag and snap pouch! because you see, stephanie crochets. she paints and has made the cutest little panda felt animal, too. and now i've my own fwumpus originals. i'm a very lucky girl.
stephanie mentioned in her note that blogging has led to meeting new people and making friends. i couldn't agree more.
thank you, friends!
and if you have never participated in a swap, whether with one or a few, i would say, "go for it." i promise you'll receive in generosity and friendship as you so kindly give. i know, thanks to these fabulous ladies you really should visit here and here.
