I started this blog in August of 2012 to have a record of the stitching projects I completed. At the time (and even now) there are few people near me that I can share my
Now onto the part we all enjoy...finishes.
This latest finish is not a cross stitch piece but I enjoyed making it none the less. This one was made for a former co-worker. She is classic and distinguished and this particular fabric called her name. She also loves boxes and funky jewelry.
I painted a plain wood box black, put a coat of polyurethane and then put a piece of fabric in the bottom and on the top then filled it with goodies. Today was the first chance I had to see her since before Christmas. I received a message from her a little while ago and was told that she loved every bit of it. I already have a top ready for the next box, I just need to decide on a color for the box. This time I think I am going to go with a stain instead of paint. Another gift for the present box. Maybe this way I will be ahead of the game on gifts for 2013.
I also completed my exchange gift (no pictures yet) and will be mailing that out tomorrow. I am working on another snowflake from STNA and a different snowflake for WOCS. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend filled with lots of stitching.
Ta Ta for now,
Angela the Crazy Cat Lady (as my daughter calls me).
