Wynnewood Sewing Tin

It always takes me longer than I think it will. But home today and finally finished lining and completing the Whitman's Sampler Wynnewood Tin. I love the gold and aqua in this tin. The pattern and tin was a gift from a friend (some time back).

I did the fun stitching of the little pin pillow right away. And then I remembered this piece of fabric I had and loved that I thought would be perfect for the lining. Luckily I gathered all that together and ziplocked it so that today I didn't have to spend precious time locating all the ingredients. Sort of a 'mise en place' for the kitchen-phobe.

These scissors are too long and the ribbon on the wool felt needle book is too dark, but I'm counting this project done until suitable replacements can be acquired. Those will be easy fixes.

Pictures are a little dark. I think it may rain!

PS: the friend who gave me the tin and the pattern? She ATE the chocolate! Some friend.

What a clever idea! I have a bunch of those little tins, my kids even save me theirs. Hmmm!

It's been raining here all day today and everything is SO happy. It sure is dry, but not as dry as it is up your way.
