A finish finish


I actually completed all the stitching I think either last year or the year before and its been sitting in the 'to finish' drawer ever since, its by Just Nan and its called Pearl Orchid, but I knew I didn't want to frame it neither did I want to make an ornament with it, when I was in Penrith last Saturday and visited the Silk Room cross stitch shop I found to my dismay they were closing and they had 50% off everything so I had a field day buying boxes and very expensive scissors at half price, and found this wooden box hidden away in a display cabinet and it perfect for Pearl Orchid. I have padded the top of the box slightly and placed it in the lid.
