Cute Bag!

I was a very lucky girl to win Rachel's giveaway recently. And look what I got...

Yep, an adorable bag made by Rachel herself! She even added a dollar bill which sparked some memories for me. Whenever my mom would give a purse or wallet as a gift she always included a little money. I just love that tradition, so it made me smile when I saw that Rachel does that too.

This bag is so perfect to carry my knitting in when I am on the go. I love the colors and fabrics she chose! Thanks so much, Rachel!!

So speaking of knitting...remember when I used to show you the traveling scarves that would pass through here. I would knit a section and send it on. Well, there haven't been many lately. A bunch of the scarves got stuck with one of the participants and then she just disappeared. No one has heard from her. Our swap mama has done an amazing job of trying to recover them but the gal who has them has not responded. As you might have guessed, my scarf is one of the ones that is lost. Well I got a scarf in the mail today and got on Ravelry to let everyone know it arrived and I find out that a slew of missing scarves showed up at some one's house! Yay! Unfortunately mine wasn't one of them but I have hope that it might eventually surface. Keep your fingers crossed...mine are!

What a super bag -- I love the colours. My mother always would put some money in a new wallet or purse she was giving as a gift and I've carried on that tradition as well.

cool bag. Now start a new project to go in it...check out "inside outside scarf" on ravelry. Lots of fun.
I like that they've started the Brute Squad in the TSG. Keep a better line on what's going on with the scarves.
