 Cheesy Let's get this gallery started!!
I received from LesliesHappyHeart today (it was Wednesday when I started this post) - and wow, does she have me figured out!  Everything she sent was perfect.
First, the Tote - front - beautiful tree with Leslie's trademark - her happy heart!:

Back of Tote - the sweet little pocket is the same fabric as the lining, so delicate and so pretty:

Inside was one of her famous pincushions with Bible verse and little pins with handcrafted birds and a little mushroom - I love this so much - and just in time too, my tomato pincushion has all but fallen apart - I've had it since high school and that, my friends, was a long time ago!  I had this pincushion on my wist and now I have one of my very own:

and a fat quarter - so wonderful, one of my favorite colors in the most beautiful shade.  Leslie and I share a love of collecting fabrics.  I will be hanging onto this for myself until I figure out just the right place to use it on something for me to keep:

and a fabric patchwork cuff with the most wonderful verse - "The Lord is my Shepherd" - this is so-o me and it fits my wrist perfectly - could not for the life of me get action shot. The cuff is patchworked little pieces of fabric which are beautiful:

And here is everything together, a couple of pics because I am so thrilled, along with a heart card Leslie sent me:


Leslie - all wonderful gifts - I'm so happy, your talent is unsurpassed as is your giving spirit!  Thank you, Friend!   Cheesy

This swap is so fun!  Grin Now I need to buckle down and get my totes completed, filled and off to my partners.  I hope I can measure up!  Smiley

BTW - I was having dinner at a restaurant with a friend of mine this evening, and took the package with me to open with her - our waitress might have been just a little impatient waiting for me to open the package - my friend was so impressed, she registered on Craftster when we each got back to our homes. She has been out of the sewing/crafting loop for a while, but she'll be joining us all soon for some swaps!   Cool  (I love the sunglasses smiley face, can you tell?  I use him all the time! He's just so cool!)

i say you carry that tote, you are going to have a great day! I love the embroidery and the button selection and that nifty pocket in back--nice nice touch along with the closure which is great.
Who would have guessed that a pincushion could be inspiring?!!  Beautiful.
Love the FQ and I love love  love the wrist cuff!

Great gallery already!
