I never knew I needed a project bag.

I didn't know I needed a project bag - but the wonderful Tracy from knew that was exactly what I needed!

I was paired with Tracy in a Santa Sack Swap and she is brilliant!  Tracy, I'm really sorry I haven't written about the lovely gifts you sent but I have been having camera problems (among other problems) and I felt that without pictures I couldn't do justice to your wonderful gifts.

The swap is amazing.  Pairs are organised back in June/July and then swappers "stalk" each other.  Tracy picked up that I sit for quite a long period each day so she sent me an armchair saddle so I can have close at hand the phone, remotes, craft stuff and all the rest of the paraphernalia of everyday life.

Now I knew I needed an armchair saddle - I just never got around to making one!  What I didn't know was that I needed a project bag.  I usually drop the ball of yarn into a spare waste paper bin but this is great.  It anchors the wool so I don't have to chase it around the room and I can put my spare crochet hook and other bits and pieces in it.  

Tracy also sent me a jar on with a nativity silhouette.  Some people might just use that at Christmas but not me.  I've filled it with some of those fiddly ball end left at the ed of projects and used in small creative projects.

For the time being I'll just say, "Tracy, you are wonderful!"And I'll write about some of the other gifts later in the month!


  1. Such thoughtful gifts, I like the idea of a project bag myself.
