100th follower gift received - Pictures

Now that I know my 100th follower received her present - here's a quick pic at what I sent Sharon. (Please visit her brand new blog)
I covered a cute box (I never throw out cute boxes any more - and a workmate keeps giving me great shoeboxes after I covered the last ones), with some black and gold fabric. I replaced the ribbon pull with a couple of matching buttons. Inside I placed a couple of my special coasters, a scissor fob with a pocket in the back to hold orts. I had stitched the freebie from My aunt's attic a couple of years ago, but only made it into the fob last month. (I really need to catch up and finish all my stitching into something useful!!) Sharon had told me she liked yellow and sparkling, so I added a couple of skeins of yellow and metallic floss. I also tossed in a few bags of yellow and gold beads!!

I'm glad Sharon enjoyed her gift - It was so much fun to put it all together! I'm looking forward to watching Sharon's new blog grow! It's only fitting that I'm her first follower - will you be the next?
