Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Proverbs 31:30

Tote Swap

Way back in May I joined Lia's Tote swap. It was fun and challenging. I made a tote that I have made many times before only this time I added some English paper pieced applique. I had not done this type of star before and liked it a lot. My swap buddy said she liked bright colors and tans. So I made this with a tan that has flecks of colors and added the bright star. I also included five fat quarters but I forgot to take a picture of them and I also forgot to put a note in the bag. ( I was in a hurry to get it out to make the June 30th deadline, which I made but forgot her card, sigh) I hope she liked her tote.

This is the bag I received in the mail, all the way from England. I love it. It is roomy and has many pockets. I am using it for my embroidery.

These are all the goodies she included. I love them. This was such a treat to receive. She didn't give me an address to send a thank you , so if you see this Thank You! I love your gift.

Lia is having another bag swap in a few months. I plan on doing this again. Won't you consider joining us?
