Christmas in July

I think that the last time I was this excited after opening up a box was Christmas Day – just look at what I found inside the box that arrived from England this week . . .

I ordered a messenger bag from Tracey Pereira through her blog, and it’s here!  I absolutely love it!!  The bag is beautifully constructed and is every bit as wonderful as the photo depicted it to be; I plan to use it as a carrier for my laptop. 

And the special little surprise tucked into the package was this sheet of hand-dyed pre-cut feathers – these were just too special for words.  Tracey said that she remembered how much I love this motif and decided to include these little treasures with my order.  My mind is going through a dozen possibilities for giving these gorgeous pieces center stage in a new quilt – this is going to be so much fun.
Do visit Tracey’s blog and check out the other messenger bag designs there.  And my heartfelt thanks to you, Tracey – you made my week!

I just checked them out. The bags look impeccably made. I like her fabrics; would have chosen the black and white, too. The skulls and roses was quite interesting.

So glad you liked it Diane. I really enjoy making these. I have a PDF pattern for the City Chic Messenger available now too. I will be putting it up on the site over the weekend.

ps Your photos look lovely!

I'm not sure which I like best, the bag or the feathers. Thanks for introducing us to her.

Oh, I just have to visit and look for something for my new laptop. Thanks for the suggestion for such a beauty. And I can't wait to see what develops with the feathers.
