A beautiful tote bag you CANNOT win.

You can't win it because it is mine, all mine.

Just had to share this picture of a gift a wonderful fan sent me. She hand quilted this generously-sized tote bag and used the cover of my second historical romance, THE PROMISE, for the picture. You can't tell, but the tote sparkles with iridescent gold flecks, too.

Oh, my gosh, was I thrilled when I saw this. Even more thrilled to think someone I don't even know (except through her wonderful fan mail) went to the trouble to do something so nice.

Thank you, Debi! The rest of you...envy me. Just, envy me.

What a beautiful bag! How did she get the book cover on the bag. Love the fabric, it goes with the book.

Thanks, Karen. I agree.

No, Carol, I will not be giving this one away, LOL!

I think she must have scanned it somehow onto a piece of fabric, Virginia. I know you can get people's pictures scanned onto T-shirts, so probably something like that. Then it looks like she pieced and quilted it together with the rest of the bag (which glitters like a pretty shiny thing!). So talented. Very nice lady, too. Writers get such a kick when their work touches someone's heart, and I'm no different. :-)
