I was recently discussing Altoid tins and ways to decorate them with a stitchy friend, and then, surprise, I received one in the mail! This was for the Spring exchange on 123 Stitch. My partner, Marie, had never tried this before. She used a design from Victoria Sampler and made it into a little needle case. The inside has a felt lining and magnet sheet attached to the lid. And note the cute bee button glued to the side. Very pretty and springy. She enclosed a couple of packs of needles as well. Thanks, Marie!
Then I also received a book I ordered, Creative Crocheted Dolls by Noreen Crone-Findlay. I've just glanced at it briefly, but it is filled with the most whimsical doll ideas that you can imagine. What an inspiration and new source of ideas!
This made my day!
