I've been ROAKed! I had a lovely surprise waiting for me when I got home yesterday. Robbie (aka buttonbrite) sent me this great package of Kool-Aid for dyeing.

I've been wanting to try my hand at a spot of dyeing for ages. I'm hoping that I will have the opportunity to do so this weekend.

The packages for the Australian Bag Lady swap went out last week. The pictures for parcels received started appearing this week and there are so many stunning bags on view. My secret pal received my parcel today. I hope she likes it because after seeing all those works of art I was feeling very inadequate. I made her a knitting tote,

a French market bag

and a string bag.

They didn't turn out quite as well as I had hoped but I think they will at least be useful.

I think my parcel is currently awaiting me at the post office. Because we live so far from the PO it will probably be a few days before I can go and pick it up. The anticipation is driving me nuts.
