Gift from umintsuru

Tatted by umintsuru

Aren't these earrings gorgeous?  The picture doesn't do them justice at all!  Wendy has a much better picture over on her blog

These are my gift from Wendy for her Pay It Forward giveaway.  They are made with Lizbeth "Spring Fling" in size 80.   When I opened the envelope there were a lot of "oohs" and "awes" as we looked these over.  Thank you very much, Wendy, I love them!

Looking back over my blog posts I realized I hadn't posted what I gave for my PIF, inspired by Wendy's post last fall.  Medictabs,Robert and Suztats were the first three people to leave a message on my blogpost and were the winners.  When I decided to do it I didn't have even a small clue of what I was going to send them, so it took a little while to get them done.  But they finally were sent off.

I've always wanted to do some Crazy Quilting - but I don't quilt and rarely embroider, so it hasn't happened yet :)  Instead I did a little "CQing" on Altoid tins for their gifts.

I added a few things on the inside.  Each was different inside and outside, but similar.

 The pink heart is a needle threader. The "match book" is a needleholder.  Each one also got a decorated shuttle that coordinated with their thin, and a ball of J &  P Coats size 80 tatting thread - it all fit inside the tin.

This was a lot of fun to do.  And really nice to win Wendy's PIF.  Thanks again, Wendy :-)
