I signed up for the lovely Laalaa's Travelling Craft Box back in January.
It's such a great idea. Lynda started by filling a box with crafty bits (supplies, kits, magazines, un/finished makes, etc.) and sent it out to the person at the top of the list. The recipient is able to take up to 5 items of their choice out of the box but must, in turn, pop the same number of items back into the box before sending it on.
I am second on the list and, quite frankly, pulled a real blinder by slotting in just under Tracy from Mad About Bags - result! :-)
The box arrived on Friday and just look what Tracy had included, prettily wrapped, for me in the top ...
This gorgeous hand sewn bag. It's so beautifully made and absolutely PERFECT for my 'crochet on the go'. Thank you so much Tracy, it's the most thoughtful gift and I love it.
She also included a matching handmade pin cushion, some buttons and choccie ...
What a lucky girl!
I'm not allowed to show you what's in the rest of the Craft Box but, after a jolly good rummage, I chose these two items ...
... and will duly replace them before sending the box on to Ali.
I'll leave you with a picture of my pretty 99p daffodils just starting to unfurl. Lucky for you there isn't a scratch 'n' sniff option on the screen - they smell absolutely foul. Like very old wet nappies.
Sorry to spoil the illusion! ;-)
