For a Special Friend...

Hubby always says I should keep the things I make instead of giving them away as they are so nice. But I have great joy in giving things to people who I know will appreciate the gift.
I have a dear stitching friend who is going through some health treatments right now and I thought I would cheer and surprise her with a little something to let her know I'm thinking about her and praying for her.
So, I made her this altoid tin scissor box with a magnetic insert.

I also added this super easy needle keep. I actually bought one when I was on vacation once and just figured out the pattern on my own. So so easy and great stitcher gifts.




My friend had actually given me a bunch of left over material that she used in backings on some of her ornaments that she had stitched. I liked this combination so I used the cupcake theme to make these items for her as a thank you and something to let her know I'm missing her stitching with us. I'm sure we'll be seeing her soon.

Also for all you stitchers, check out my new button for the International Hermit and Stitch Weekend.....sounds like fun and you do it in your own home once a month. Check it out.

So, till next time, yinz crazy guys!

What a perfect job of embellishing that tin! Love the use of ribbons to hold down the scissors... I just may have to steal that idea! And the needle case is just the cutest. This is a a really great gift!
