This very thoughtful gift arrived in the mail last week,
from my dear blogging friend, Sonja, in Norway,
Sonja sent this beautiful hand-made bag and a sweet card.
She is an excellent seamstress and
she loves blue.
I love blue, too.
And I love this bag!
Look how perfectly sewn it is.
Oh, how I admire the sewing ones!
And the inside is polka-dots,
and I love polka-dots, too.
I don't think it is meant to be reversible,
but I think it works.
It came just in time for a college trip we are taking with Little Bug next week.
You see, I needed a bag to carry a crochet project.
I have placed an unfinished project from last year in it,
(which happens to coordinate with the bag)
to work on during travel time.
Thank you so much Sonja!!!
Last July I started this rose project:
I still don't know what I am going to make from all the mohair roses from this post,
but I will continue to:
And make more roses until something comes to me.
or until y'all tell me what I should make with these.
(There were some great suggestions from that post last July, as well.)
