"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

A Long Overdue Commitment

Most days I have great follow through. Most days, if I say I'm going to make/do something for someone, it gets done rapidly. Every now and then, something slips off my radar and life gets in the way. Then, when I remember it, I am usually shamefully behind and past due on the thing (whatever it is). Well, I finally finished one of those shamefully behind projects and I want to show it off to y'all. I finished the tote bags for the previous winners of my Book Challenge drawing. Mrs. Gamgee of Hobbit-ish Thoughts and Ramblings was the 2009 winner and Rebecca (aka Idgie) formerly of A Long and Winding Road now titled The Road From There To Here is the 2010 winner. I have Mrs. Gamgee's address and will need Rebecca's so I can get the tote bags in the mail.
I made a 3rd tote bag which was originally going to be mine but I decided it had my mom's name on it instead.
There is two outside pockets, front and back, and one interior compartment. I hope everyone likes them and I promise (bwahahahahahaha) to really, really try to be more timely next time.

Those bags are gorgeous, Kristin! I particularly love the colors in the one for your mom =D

Oh, and let's not talk about timeliness, shall we? I still have a gift belonging to you (and one belonging to Trisha at Such a Short Time - Such a Long Road) from a long ago Secret Pal hanging on the doorhandle of my bedroom. I am really, truly hoping to get those in the mail this week. I swear, my brain has holes in it! Everytime I think about them, I'm not at home and then when I get home, all thought of them goes right out the door. Must remember to put them in the mail!!!

Catching up...
--I am hooked on sweet tea and always miss it terribly the few weeks I spend in Ohio each summer. :)

--Can't believe you were able to get the dirt-covered socks clean. Wow! I've never used an oxy-anything product, but must look into it!

I'm here via ICLW and it's great to meet another crafter! This post reminds me I must share some of what I've been crafting lately on my own blog soon. Not done that this year.

Those bags are beautiful, you are very skilled!
