Altoid Tin finish

Joy Abounds by Lynne Herzberg
The Gift Of Stitching Magazine November 2006
Started: January 24, 2008
Finished: January 25, 2008
stitched using 32 count white Opalescent Linen
Red Heart Plum Pudding Yarn used on base
Okay since destiny is now 6 years old. She has had a serious interest in stitching and is doing a great job with her x's so I decided its time to make her, her own little tin to hold her needles and scissors. She picked out this design herself and i stitched it for her and put this together. I was going to do a blue and brown theme for her but she then decided she wanted the base covered in pink and purple so I stitched it up using some leftover yarn since I don't have any ribbon. It looks really odd to me but she loves it so I guess its alright.
I am now working on my Round 5 Fair and Square exchange which I hope to complete over the weekend. I am also mailing out all my late PIF gifts in a few weeks before I go to the Klinikum for my leg surgery. Its just to remove all the metal from my leg from when i broke my leg in 3 places. Theres a long rod, a plate and 13 screws getting removed. I opted to be completely knocked out for this since I had a bad experience before with a spinal. I go in Friday 15th at 0700 and on Monday 18th they should release me. DH is having a 4 day weekend that weekend so he can be home with the girls. And yes I am going to take some stitching with me so I can stitch for 3 days straight!
Have a Great Weekend!

What a cute tin! It's wonderful your daughter is taking such a interest in stitching and that you can share that with her. I wish you the best for your surgery and speedy healing! Take care.

Very cute tin, she must be thrilled with having it be just hers. Good luck with the metal removal. I hope it goes smoothly for you. I'll look forward to seeing what all stitching you get done.
