I made one for myself as a practice, and I LOOOOOVE it.  Though one of the velcro bits came off in the laundry so I need to reapply.  :/  I hope puzzler's don't!  (Though she'll probably remember to wash it all closed up!)


OH and puzzler, I have gotten so many compliments on the utensil roll and napkins!  All the ladies at work are jealous!

This was only my second swap, and Bergman was really, really awesome about it!  I just learned to sew, so one of the things I said I'd love, would be for a tutorial.  So she wrote one for me, on how to make a tote bag, AND sent fabric along with it so I could practice!  This community is just so giving and helpful, I really love Craftster Smiley  Without getting any more sentimental...I present the following Bergman amazingness:

Here is a totebag, five swaths of beautiful fabric, rick rack and a phenomenal tute on how to make the totebag.  I would have been over the moon if this was all that was in my package, but there was more!


Here is Vinny inspecting our brand new swiffer covers...these things are awesome!  You can see the sushi card in back, yum.


A thread catcher!!  Both the bag and the catcher are secured with velcro.  Ingenious!!  I've already put it to use.  What a concept.  It has already made a difference in my workspace.


And finally, just because there was still space left in the box, Bergman stuffed a bunch of notions in that she thought I'd find useful.  Check out those scissors charms.  Love them.


Bergman, you are cooler than a rocket pop.  Thank you so much!

This is the package I received from Troublet Smiley

Here are the beautiful (and useful) potholders/hotpads that were crocheted for my kitchen.  I donated a few to the group home too as most of our hotpads were donated to the new group home.  These we get to keep Smiley


Here is a close-up of the beautiful card that she sent along with the goodies!


This is the purse that she crocheted for me.  I've always wanted a crocheted granny square purse, I've just never had the time to make one...or anything for myself for that matter   Cheesy


Here are the useful tips for grocery shopping and being extra frugal when in the kitchen (This is exactly what I needed)


And last but not least, here is the apple butter, taken just seconds before it was put to good use on some bagels!

Thank you troublet for the wonderful package and helpful/useful items.  I am one happy girl now!

I am really glad you like everything! I tried to keep it frugal themed, the best part was I didn't buy anything everything was from my stash!

Here's my package from AttieNichole!
http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/nn159/bajita42/IMG_0797.jpg

There's 4 different colors and weights of yarn! Cheesy The framed floral piece surround by the yarn is a reversible message board made for push pins on one side and chalboard paint on the other side. Then on the bottom left, 2 crocheted dishcloths, a set of 4 Thank You cards, a clothes pin bag, a kitchen scrubbie made with plarn and a dark green headband for me. Smiley

Thank you Attie! Cheesy
