Here is a little ditty I did recently....


Here is an extra large Altoid Tin I did for my guild's (Gentle Pursuits EGA - Richmond, VA) President's Challenge. I covered the altoid tin with a modifid version of Brightneedle's Key West Sampler. That is on the top and not pictured. The inside is a modified version of Brightneedle's "Under the Sea" sampler. I tufted the inside top of the tin and inserted a antique mother of pearl fish thread winder, a bone ribbon threader and a 2.5" pair of scissors with crystal stone scissor fob with a flip-flop charm. I also made a modified Merry Cox "Sailor's Huswife Ditty" chatelaine. I made a thimble bucket (anchor) and placed an albalone thimbe in the bucket. I did a blackwork fish pin keep and attached a bone carved fish needlecase.


I had loads of fun stitching this up and it was difficult to give away.....I think because I put so much of myself in it!


I hope you like it!
