As promised, I love to show you the scissorcase and presents I received from Maria Joa.The scissor and case are stitched with love and care as you can see. And then the lovely towel, which has a border with miniature crochet. I'm very happy with all the items.
Yesterday I received a lovely scissorpocket from Maria Joa. Thank you so much , I'm very happy with it and I immediately started using the case and scissor. And top op all you enclosed some more wonderfull presents.
I will place a picture soon, as I am in a hurry right now.
Look at the lovely gifts I recieved from Armonde in Italy, Firstly, a lovely little scissor case complete with a beaded pin closure. But Armode writes that it wasn't what she wanted so the sweetie made another, and this time she included a delightful pair of pink scissors in the case too. On this one she sewed in cross stitch using vriagated thread and it's just lovely. Thank-you so much Armonde, I will always treasure my gift from you all the way on the other side of the world.
My scissor case has gone to...........? I hope my partner likes it! Sorry I am late posting, I am in DC and can't get home lol! We have a huge storm coming and my flight is cancelled. If my scissor case has been sent to me I will open it when I get home!
Sign-ups are now open for the Altoid Tin Exchange.
Some important notes about this exchange:
You do not have to use an "Altoid" tin - any similar size tin will work. How big is a standard Altoid Tin? By my measurements:
3-13/16" (9.68 cm) long
2-7/16" (6.19 cm) wide
3/4" (1.91 cm) deep
Please do not use a "mini" tin (they are so cute. but really tiny!)
Other shapes can be used (I've got some round tins and even a couple of heart shaped tins), as long as they are a similar size.
Your decorated tin must include cross stitch (silly, I know, to have to state that - but we are primarily a cross-stitch group - not a clay or paint or paper-craft group).
Sign-ups open today and run through 22 February 2010. Partners will be emailed by 1 March 2010, and the final mail-out date is 1 April 2010. To sign up, please email me. Put TTE Altoid Tin in the subject line, and include your name and address (so I can verify that I have the correct address).
Neat inspirations can be found here, here or here (Tokens and Trifles Rectangles are almost perfectly sized for Tin Toppers!). I've listed a couple of tutorials all the way at the bottom of the blog (under Finishing Links).
