I got an email from Anne tonight letting me know that my birthday gifts for her have arrived safely - whew! Always worry when they travel so far! This was a first for me - I made her a little needlework kit out of an Altoid tin. I put magnets inside on the top and bottom (Mike has magnetic business cards, boy did they come in handy here!) and put needles in the top and a wee pair of scissors in the bottom (***Joann's sells their own line of scissors and they fit nicely into an Altoid tin). Anne seems to be thrilled with my effort, and see her blog for a better photo - it looks a bit wonky here (which surprised me) but looks right in her photo :-)

Good heavens, Carol, if I were Anne, I'd be doing cartwheels all over the house! That's a gorgeous design and perfect finishing!!

Chiara said...

Your gift for Anne is lovely!!!

lena-lou said...

I love the tin topper you have made Anne, aren't you getting very clever now :-) You have done it brilliantly!!

Vonna Pfeiffer said...

LOVELY tin Carol :) and all the extras you sent were just so nice of you..she's so deserving!
I love the little purse in the JCS mag too...but I've put it on hold...I'm trying to work out a rotation of sorts...any help from your side on how you do it?
Stay warm! It's headed your way (the weather....we're in the middle of it RIGHT NOW!)

I'm VERY tempted by the stash! I keep promising myself that I'll try some dyed fabric.......but I'm being strong for a change, lol.

When you get a moment, email your address to send the pif to, please :)

Susimac said...

Its lovely your tin topper, I bet Anne is delighted.

Unknown said...

Your gift turned out great! And thank you for sending me the pick of the purse, I may have to have that one as well!

Wendy said...

I love the Altoid tin you made for Ann. The top is so cute. And I hadn't seen that purse design before. I must out and hunt down that magazine.

Kitty Couture said...

That's a lovely tin you stitched for Anne!! :)

Anne is definitely doing cartwheels around the house - I adore my little tin topper!! :D BTW, if the 'In the Clouds' Lugana hasn't gone already, I'd love to buy that from you, as I have some birdie charts that would be beautiful on it ... I'll send you a separate email soon! :D

Stitch Wizard said...

Oh Carol the little sewing tin is just sooooooooooo cute!! What a nice job you did as well!! I bet Anne just loves it!! Debby :)

Annemarie said...

Your gift for Anne is another triumph, Carol! And you're right, it doesn't even LOOK like a fob :o) Great progress on HoHRH too. I'm picking up the Village again tomorrow!

Margaret said...

Your tin topper for Anne is absolutely amazing - I LOVE IT!!!!

Love the tin and I did see that Anne loved it too. I have a bunch saved, just need to use a few of them.

Dawn T. said...

The tin is adorable! Great job. :)

Michelle said...

Your HOHRH is looking fantastic. You are really making good progress on it. I love the tin you made for Anne. When I was beading my wedding purse, I would carry an Altoid tin with my beads in it, my beading needle, nymo thread, and my scissors. It all fit perfectly!

BeckySC said...

Very nice tin topper, Carol :)

WOW, HoHRH is moving along!

Will be in contact with you tonight :)

BTW-are you having as much trouble with blogger as I am??? Are you still having to sign in each time??

Nicki said...

I love your tin for Anne! It's gorgeous :) What a great present :)

cathymk said...

Beautiful work on the tin Carol! It's so cute!

Thank you for showing the pic of the purse. I am a subscriber to JCS but it comes on the slow boat and I often don't get it till 3 months after it's issue. Case in point - I actually got the January issue before the November/December issue! Now I have something to look forward too!

What a cute finish for the tin - I've never done one, but I love yours!

Carla said...

The tin is beautiful!!! And you HoHRH is looking great!

Cathy B said...

I just saw your tin topper on Anne's blog - great job!

Von said...

Your tin topper is brilliant, Carol! I have made a few - loved making them. :D
