    Bag Lady #4

    Our 4th tote is finished & ready to be sent out to a deserving Bag Lady (Or Gentleman)!

    I used a different stitch on this one (Tunisian Knit) ​​ & it ended up a tad bit smaller than the previous totes. Still plenty ample for a project!

    I'll be shipping it out as soon as I've contacted the recipient & have the necessary info. I'll give some clues as to the who & where once it's on the way.

              Would you look at that! I love how each one is different yet they are all so fine. It doesn't seem any smaller. I'll be watching for the first clue!

                The tote is on it's way to such a deserving recipient! It should arrive Saturday, though I'm really hoping for Friday.

                1st Clues...

                1. The tote will travel an estimated 1,750 miles in a northeasterly direction. Approximately 430 miles before it leaves Texas.

                2. The intended recipient enjoys crochet, needlepoint, embroidery & cross-stitch. She is also an amateur photographer and loves to cruise. She generously shares ideas & encouragement here on Fiberkind.

                A new clue will be posted tomorrow!

                  Ohhhh - I will really enjoy knowing who this one is. I love to cruise as well.

                  Hmm. Somewhere closer to the East Coast than farther from it.

                It's well on it's way now. Delivery is still scheduled for Saturday.

                More clues!

                Some fun facts about the final destination according to Wikipedia:
                • In the past, lumbering was carried on extensively. Today, many residents are employed by a large corporate plant nearby.
                • The Nature Conservancy voted the area one of its top 40 "Last Great Places."
                • It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.
                More clues to the "who" tomorrow!

                    No new updates on where the tote is, though it's still on track for delivery tomorrow!

                    A little more about our recipient:

                    She's an accountant & banker by profession.
                    She's been married to the love of her life for 45 years!
                    She's a middle child.

                    Now we wait! & add a few prayers for USPS to get it there.

                    Y'all have a Happy day!

                      I'm so glad it was you! It's such a nice bag, filled with such nice treasures and you deserve it!

                      Psst, it's true what they say (that you deserve it and it wouldn't be the same without you) and we would miss you something fierce if you weren't around!

                      I can't wait to see what you make!

                      Thank you all for your kind words. I don't know how I would have survived these last few months without the companionship of this community.
