I have no idea what the mental block is about posting to my blog, since I so enjoy reading those of others and want to share likewise with our community of stitchers. A couple of days ago, I received a package from my Santa Sack Swap 2 partner, Sinta, and she included a note in it that, in effect, said "just get started" with the blog. It was just that last push that I needed. And I think I'm that much more inspired because the note accompanied a beautiful "sack" made of wonderful Christmas fabrics and fun pom-pom trim. To call this tote a "sack" is to really do it an injustice, and I look forward to using it for many years. Many thanks to my swap partner, Sinta, for a lovely gift and a gentle nudge.
