Don't you just wish you were me.

Because if you were me, you would have gotten a package today from your postman (which traveled all the way from Down Under) with this lovely wrapped bit of fun inside...

which contained not only this terribly adorable custom-made tote bag with a scooter on it...

but also the absolute cutest Four Seasons Spring Quilt inside! (Which coincidentally was the one I had been downright coveting since I saw its picture posted on the flickr group.) I squealed with delight when I pulled it out of the tote bag and saw that it was MINE, MINE, MINE!



I mean, seriously, check out all the details -- I cannot imagine the hours upon hours that it took (at least it would take hours upon hours for little ole' me to do that detail work) to embroider all the way around every little flower, leaf, branch, and bird -- not to mention the hand quilting of both the quilt and the tote bag as well.

And how sweet was it for Louise to make the tote bag as well? Especially for this scooter-riding girl?!

I cannot even begin to tell you, Louise, how much I absolutely LOVE both of them! Even my husband can attest to the fact that I was screaming down our hallway to tell him that one of my favorite bloggers, lululollylegs, was the one who made them for me. That, in itself, was excitement enough! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

And the icing on the cake? Tomorrow is my birthday, so the package arrived with perfect timing.

I was hoping that I found you the perfect partner; I thought you'd love her sense of style (just as I do)! The colors are so fantastic and springlike. I'm glad it managed to safely make it's 8000 journey!!

Hi Valerie, I thought I'd have a quick read of your blog before bed and realised you had received your parcel! I'm so glad you like it. You were lots of fun to sew for because I think we have quite similar tastes. And what a happy coincidence it arrived in time for your birthday. A very Happy Birthday to you!!! I couldn't resist making the bag for you - what a cool scooter you own! And now I can comment regularly instead of lurking in the shadows!! Enjoy!
