Now the pants, pin box, sampler progress

The pants are torn apart so tonight I will recut them, zig zag the edges and start to sew them back together. They look blue in this picture, but they are a light green.
Yesterday one of the ladies saved me this tin. Someone had brought it last week for the St. Patrick's Day party. It was full of chocolate mint candies. I had the perfect use for it!
I cut a piece of foam core, added a couple layers of a thin batting, wrapped it in fabric and stuck my niece's girl scout pins in it. I had taken the pins off her sash before I appliqued it to her quilt. I decided to add my Girl Scout pin; it's the blue and gold round one on the right side. I did not glue the pins in place. I just pushed them down into the foam core. I sent a picture to my sister to show her and she said she had her pins and our Mom's Girl Scout pin. I told her if she wanted to she could move the pins around and add those if she wanted.
I continue to work on that sampler as I get a few minutes here and there. Here is where I was a couple days ago and where I am now.

Three generations of pins to end up in that tin, how neat is that.
