Lovely, lovely gally so far. Beautiful work, Ladies!

i received my wonderful geezer package from A2K this week. i'm in knitting heaven ... A2K spoiled me rotten ... again  Smiley

Here are all the beautiful items i received (~ i went a little picture crazy ...  Roll Eyes just couldn't help it ...)


A2K made me this awesome and perfect quilted knitting/craft supplies bag:



... which has beauteous hand embroidered details ~ like this  ~ all over on the outside:


.. and many, many useful pockets on the inside:


~ i LOVE the colors and fabrics  Grin
... reminds me very much of the colors of my kitchen window board  Smiley


Here is a close up of the knitting needles and lovely handspun yarn my partner generously included ~ spun by J. Brisson & loudxmouse, and traded for in the STS


... and another close up of the cute knitting journal and adorable stitch markers in rainbow colors ~ which were handmade by atsuko:




Thank you, A2K! Everything is so so lovely  Kiss  Kiss  Kiss

I'm so glad you like the colors of that bag -- it was a bit risky using those pieces, because they are a bit eclectically mixed, in my opinion, but you said you liked color!  I did enjoy making that bag, very much.  And I enjoyed trading for the other things as well.  In fact, I'm hoping that Brisson woman is spinning up some more yarn for ME!  Cheesy 

P.S.  Thanks to my STS sisters for their help in making a knitting geezer happy!  Cheesy

Oooooh, I love that knitting tote too....and I don't even knit!  The colors are wonderful, I love bright/eclectic patterns too and it's not easy mixing them together so they look nice, great job.

What a beautiful bag!  I love all the bright colors!

I'm hoping to have my item done in time, I'm gone this weekend and that only leaves me one other weekend to sew.  Yikes!
