sscs

Well thursday early in the morning I unwrapped my gift as I was going away until today and I just love what I received, a beautifull crochetted and felted bag. I am surely going to use it.
Thanks Annie.
Than today I did send an e-mail to Dawn my exchange pattern to see if she had figured out what it was she received, well she didnt, just see her e-mail:

"After I had cleaned up, and we still had visitors, I then said, look what I have received from the Netherlands and went and obtained the box from the tree. I opened the smalller of the two parcels first and was absolutely estatic with the materials - just LOVE the tonings - you got it very right., then the bigger parcel - yes this did have us all intrigued as we went from discussing what it would be used for - well you can imagine , we tried every which way but couldnt work out the "final" use - we had tried to make it into casserole holders, shapes, but you had us all miffed. I think it was the gorgeous Xmas fabric which made us all think it was a Xmas themed product, hence why we were trying think it was a "kitchen" themed idea!!!! I can say that i too just LOVE the fabric - in fact have one of the "dot" ones and also the candy cane ones which I purchased in New Zealand earlier in the year, so that is absolutely amazing.

Now - a Sewing Machine cover - let me go and see.......................................
oh you are amazing - how on earth did you know it would fit???? Do you have the same machine????
Thanking you - it is lovely and looks great - have it on there now - cant wait to show the visitors as to where it belongs!!!"

Yes I saw this machinecover on the modabakeshop and just fell in love and immediately thought about Dawn and that I would make it for her from my "Winter" Jellyroll. I asked on an onlinegroup I belong too if someone had a machine like hers and if they could meassure it for me and someone could do it. I am very gratefull that she was so helpfull. That is why it looks a bit strange on my machine as a Bernina has a table on it and not mine. I am glad she likes it so much and they had so much fun to find out what it was for.
I have to say I loved making it and will probaly make one for my own sewingmachine too as soon as I have a few things I must finish have finished.
