At the Post office a huge box was waiting for me, and inside was a Tinnie ! Yay!
I have pined for a Tinnie for ages. Mine is in a blue/violet colourway, stuffed with vintage fat quarters, trim and buttons. And - surprise - a Holly Hobbie pillowcase! Wow!
I love the concept of a Tinnie - they're like the old tins of haberdashery you find in op shops, except they contain an edited selection of pretty things that you actually want. Cathy is awesome for making these. We met up recently and I sent her a big bag of vintage wallpaper offcuts and she kindly promised me a Tinnie in return. Hurrah for swaps!
