An's Birthday Gift

Dear, sweet An e-mailed me just this morning to let me know that she just opened up my birthday package for her! So without further ado I'll let you all see what I did for her. (Well these aren't clickable....so go to my sidebar picture albums and choose Gifts to Others to see clearer pictures....SORRY!)

Singing Mermaids Stitcher's Tin
Fabric: Picture This Plus Opalescent
Fibers: DMC

Inside of Stitcher's Tin - Magnetized Lid for Scissors and the Pincushion bottom

Side Detail of Stitcher's Tin

I certainly had bigger plans for An's birthday, than this humble tin, but time slipped away and this is all I could get together for her. I believe that she likes it :) And it was made with love and her in mind.

Happy Birthday An! I hope you have nothing in life but sunshine and rainbows, with many more birthdays to come!

Thank you friends for visiting my 'lil blog and wishing me such kind words and well wishes. Your visits and comments make me smile and make me stitch with "happy fingers" (as dear Beatrice always says!). Have a great week....mine, it's gonna be a busy one - but I shall think of all you out there stitching to your hearts delight!
