Gift from a tea-lover friend
As much as I love to give handmade gifts, I have to tell you that I simply adore receiving handmade gifts because I so appreciate the time and effort and sheer thoughtfulness that goes into such a gift. For that reason, I was simply delighted when ParTea Lady surprised me back before Christmas with this adorable handmade sewing/crafts organizer she stitched from a Debbie Mumm teabag print fabric.
Since I am still (slowly) working on blocks for a Cathedral Window Quilt, that is what I am using this for at the moment. There are so many great pockets inside, so I can store a fabric pen, a plastic marking tool, scissors, fabric squares and completed quilt squares. And if I ever complete the quilt, this will no doubt adapt quite well to papercrafts or whatever the next project is that I take along in this classy organizer.
I was (and am) especially smitten with the design of the fabric. It just makes me smile! And so does receiving such a wonderful handmade gift!
