    Bag Lady #2

    Our 1st tote to be sent out to a deserving Bag Lady (Or Gentleman). It was a delight to stitch.

    Perhaps it needs a name. Granite & Wine maybe. I'm terrible at naming things. You all can make suggestions on that. It won't be shipped until Tuesday due to the holiday tomorrow. I'll give some clues as to the who & where once it's on the way.

    Wow! This is beautiful! Such a wonderful gift. I am seeing a silver party set to serve the wine. Lol

    The recipient lady or gentleman shall be indeed pleased!

    I love our community. So giving!

    Knitting is happening here! ❤️

        Gasp - can anyone have too many bags???? I'm thinking not - especially one as special as this.

      It IS special, but my daughter and one of my daughters-in-law used to sell "Thirty-one" so I do have an overabundance of bags! 😊. REALLY!!! whoever does get this bag will be very, very lucky!

        I went through a Thirty-One phase as well. Love those bags!

      FreedomLover it really is. Sadly, both my daughter and D-I-L stopped selling the Thirty-one bags but my supply will last a long time! I will admit that the above bag is tempting. !😊

        It's been shipped! It should be delivered Thursday.

        1. It has to travel an estimated 1,150 miles in a Northeasterly direction.

        2. The intended recipient is an all around crafty kind of person, including knitting & crochet. This person also posts daily on Fiberkind and generously shares ideas and encouragement.

        A new clue will be posted tomorrow!

        Hmmm - we assume (by profile and user name) that Debbie lives in Texas. Texas is a pretty big state, however. If she lives on the far west side of Texas, we're likely looking at Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri area. If she lives on the far east side of Texas - we could be looking at Pennsylvania or New York. The UP of Michigan is an option even. That's a pretty big span. The bag will be well traveled for sure!

          Such good guesses!

          It has to travel 400 miles before it leaves Texas!

          TexasPurl - I wonder if you'll give us updates on where the USPS has the package

        #9
        It's well on it's way now. Delivery is still scheduled for tomorrow.

        Though not the final destination - here's a few facts about the closest major metropolitan area:
        • This city has the largest sporting facility in the world.
        • This city has the 3rd largest cemetery in the country. John Dillinger & President Benjamin Harrison are interred there.
        • It's the birth place of sliced bread.
        The recipient is such a special person. More clues to the "who" tomorrow before delivery!

          It's not the UP if it has to go 400 miles to even leave TX!

          pinesprairie yes - probably not the UP. But - I am thinking anywhere in the lower midwest is a possibility. Hmmm - the "map" narrows.

        #10
        Well POOH! I don't necessarily see myself as old & forgetful, I'll call it vintage & distracted.
        This didn't make it into the package!
        My apologies to the recipient in advance.

          It's that time of year for us accountants - our mind is always elsewhere for sure. I'm sure the recipient will be understanding but you might send him/her a copy of the inside

        #11
        Woo Hoo! It's made it to the distribution center & should be out for delivery soon!

        On to the recipient---

        She's currently in the top 10 list of members with the mosts posts to the Fiberkind site.
        She's a mother, small business owner & beautiful person.
        She doesn't shy away from challenges.
        She's a devoted sock knitter.


        If you've guessed the recipient, please don't disclose it here. Send me a PM & I'll confirm.

        One more clue will be given, once it's out for delivery.

          It's at the final destination!!!

          The recipient will have to pick it up at the post office.

          Now we wait!!

          Final Clue: The pictures below depict a moniker our recipient has been referred to here on Fiberkind....

          I am humbled - thank you TexasPurl . The bag is definitely an item of beauty and quality that I will treasure.

          (and the yarn will likely send me to the moon this week! LOL)

            FreedomLover - it's a good thing. So much yarn, so little time - I can't contain myself.

          So, I know I'm somewhat prejudiced, however I do see how much work Char does for us on this website. Well deserved. TexasPurl , what a lovely gift!
