I made a tin for Alexia, to match the fob I did for her on a previous exchange. Love the pattern, from Mary Englebreit, and I still have some of the backing fabric, so it was a perfect surprise. She wrote saying it was nice to have the set.

It was nice to personalize it, good thing her name fit on the design, also added a lucky charm!

The top is cushioned so she can also use it as a pincushion.

This is the back, thought the prints are a little large, the word "friend" is whole, didn't want to cut it.

I also got my new crocheted snowflakes from Bea. I'll starch them tomorrow, I can't wait until Christmas to see how the tree will look. I told her I wouldn't put it down until they were here. So I'll have the picture by Friday. Hope she gets a blog soon so I can comment on the beautiful things she does.

One final thing, I know I'm ahead of my time, but no one pointed out that I'm living 200 years ahead! lol I wrote "2209 exchange" on the previous post, now it's corrected.

What a cute tin! I like they way you came up with a new way to finish them.

And you are the winner of the Angel Collector pattern! I'll get it in the mail to you in a couple of days.
