when a craftster veteran like i am gets spoiled to the max by a first time swapper, it leaves me speechless, truly.
and i am humbled by your skills, imebears!
here's the "basket" that she made for me. i am putting basket in quotes because this is going to tote with me in the real world for sure!http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/20536_29Feb12_fabricbasketies.jpg
i wish you could really see how well constructed it is, it's crazy nice and it is BIG!
there's room for plenty more books, snacks, fqs, books, snacks, fqs...that sort of rotation http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/20536_29Feb12_fabricbasketiesa.jpg
so there were these two felted balls inside. i didn't know what to do about that so, i smelled them.
they smelled like felted wool. so i'm thinking, well, that's an interesting extra and i need to figure out what i should make of and with them.
then i saw this amazing amazing note that she crafted and wrote for me:http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/20536_29Feb12_woolcat.jpghttp://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/20536_29Feb12_woolcatnote.jpg
imebears saw the photo of my cat Nash looking out the window on my blog and wrote, "I knew I had to make you a felted cat pin. ..the extra wool balls are for you cats. ours love to play with wool."
and then the poem "fog" by carl sandburg.
well he sure is enjoying the box that everything came in!http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/20536_29Feb12_nashfebruary2012.jpg
that pin looks just like him!!
thank you so so so much!
I am so glad I sent the box for Nash. He just as bad as our cats, any box or bag is fair game. I didn't post the picture but one of my cats was checking out the baskets you made while I was trying to take pictures.
Well enjoy and happy swapping with you.
