Its arrived FROM Eva

Am I a lucky girl or what!!! Evas tin arrived for me (see previous post about exchange), I couldn't wait to get in from work today to see if it had come.
I opened my beautifully wrapped packet and this was what was inside:



- Gorgeous isn't it. It looks and feels like Eva has stitched it using silk thread.



Look at the outside, its beautifully trimmed around the outside of the tin with lace.



So now I've opened it and what did I find inside, a tiny fob with tiniest tassel I've ever seen. Eva has put my name on one side and her initials on the other and its trimmed with beads. There was also a pincushion with birds on one side and on the other its says Tin Box Exchange and the month and year.



Inside the box its beautifully padded and lined with the prettiest fabric and Eva has covered the base of the tin on the outside with felt.



Thankyou so much my friend its truely lovely and I can't wait til we decide to do another exchange with each other in the future (my fingers and toes are crossed that we will LOL!!)

It's absolutely beautiful! Eva did a wonderful job :) I love the lace trim and the inside fabric - I must learn how to do one of these someday soon.

About the photo collage - is that a new Blogger feature or have you used another program to create it?

You both did such a fantastic job. I'd love to have either one!

Where is this exchange taking place? I'd like to watch the other finishes. I learn a lot just through watching others work and pick up ideas.
