An Extra Special Gift

A grand surprise came my way on Sunday.

You already know about how Husband bought crochet hooks from overseas for me

My friend Lois, seamstress extraordinaire, put together a wonderful crochet hook carrying case.

She listened when I said I did not want a zipper or velcro, since they tend to make noise while I am in meetings.

She made sure there is a cover across the top so that the metal does not rub against the other.

There is detailed hand-quilting around the pattern of the fabric, and strong machine stitches holding each little sleeve in place.

An heirloom (click to see it in all its glory), which I will treasure all my days.

Thank You!

~~love and Huggs, Diane

    What a blessing! Not only did she do an excellent job of constructing it, but also made it ‘custom-sized’ for your cushioned handles! Very nice! And extra pockets on the sides, to boot! I KNOW you will love this gift and use it to it’s fullest; please tell your friend she’s very thoughtful and creative!
