Another Birthday Surprise

Filed under: Blogfriends — folkcat at 11:00 am on Tuesday, August 14, 2007

I didn’t forget to mention this on Monday, but that post was long enough, and had other things to deal with. So here I am today, with my public Thank You to Leesa, a blogless blogfriend.

Leesa surprised me big time when this arrived in the mail on Saturday:

Wristlet Bag, Made by Midnight Creations, Gifted by Leesa

That’s a handmade “Wristlet” bag, made by Midnight Creations, an Etsy shop (www.midnightcreations.etsy.com). Leesa said (in the beautiful card pictured behind the bag), “So there I was, browsing on Etsy…It was fibery, fun, functional, full of color, fabricated by hand, feline-oriented, and just screamed “FOLKCAT”!”

She was oh, so right – and so very sweet to buy it and send it to me! If you look closely, you can see it even has a beaded zipper pull, with the focal bead being a nice purple one. And the zipper pull is on a lobster claw, so it could even be taken off and used as a row marker for knitting!

I already have the perfect use for the bag. When I go out with my knitting, my notions travel in a couple of cheap, plastic pencil pouches I got in the (former) $1 Spot at Target. How much classier to put them in this wonderful bag, especially when the tote I’m carrying everything in is a felted piece handknit of Noro Kureyon. At last, a notions pouch worthy of the knitting bag!

So Leesa, thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU! I LOVE IT!
