I had a lovely partner for the Easter basket swap in the early Spring and she suggested we do a personal swap for our birthdays. She sent some very special items for my birthday last month and I loved it all. Thank you, sarahelise for everything, you are such a thoughtful person.
I asked for a lightweight Spring scarf in an open, lacey pattern and look what she created. I recently moved a little further north, so I still get to wear this scarf at night. I hope the photo does the yarn color justice---it's the perfect butter meets a daffodil shade of yellow.
It is long, so I can wear it many different ways

She also made a drawstring bag out of a beautiful Spring fabric. This is the second drawstring bag she has made for me and her patience with threading the drawstring is amazing to me. I like these bags for projects on the go when I travel. I am in love with the gingham ribbon!
Here it is lying flat
See how much it holds?! Very roomy.
Finished off with a cute zigzag stitch in light pink thread
Finally, she made a darling little crochet flower pin. This accessory has shown up all over my wardrobe in the last month. I have pinned it to a change purse, headbands, my shirt, and on and on. It really is so versatile and I love things that are both pretty and functional.

Thanks sarahelise for a wonderful package. You are talented in so many areas!
I am sending your June birthday package out this weekend.
