A Wooden box



Remember my LHN finish - Daisy Lane cottage, well I have decided it would look perfect in a wooden box lid. I have padded and lined the lid of the box and the inside bottom with some pretty blue and white checked fabric, I didn't want anything too fussy, edged the lid with white silk cord and added a wee heavy dragonfly charm, I think its turned out great and I am really pleased with it.

I still haven't heard yet whether my Halloween exchange has got to my partner yet, I do worry about things getting lost. I'll be sending off my Autumn exchange and Stitching smalls exchange this week too so there will be more piccies to show soon.

Plus I have done some more Christmas ornaments and I have nearly finished the finish for Peaceful Ways which I stitched in the summer.

Oh Su! How lovely! I envy your finishing talents :-) I know what you mean about worrying - I sent a stitched gift to the UK over two weeks ago, but as of yesterday the recipient was still anxiously watching for it - how aggravating :-(

What a lovely box! Are there instructions on the web for finishing the box the way you did? Specifically the top?

What a beautiful box! The stitching and finishing are superb. Do you have directions for attaching the stitching to the top of the box?
