Since there isn't enough to show on my new start HAED, I thought I'd share this lovely tin that I made for my best friend's daughter. I lined it with an extra layer of batting so that it could work as a pin cushion. I filled it with a package of needles, some colored pins, and a pair of purple scissors. She is just beginning to learn how to stitch. Last year I sent a tin to her Mom, and she requested that I make another one for her daughter.
