Couple of finishes...




I finished the PV Violets piece as a box. Thanks to Becky for the tutorial. I bought the box at Michaels, stained it and mounted the stitched piece on top. I love it. I plan to display it in my craft room. I think it is lovely.


Also, I finished a quick ornament from the new JCS 2007 Ornament edition. I needed to send an ornament as an exchange and thought this one would be cute. It was really easy and fast to stitch.

I am going to be quite busy for the next couple of days on the book, but I should be caught up by Wednesday. Then I can prepare for the stitching retreat this weekend. I am really excited about that. I need to organize several projects and also put together a gift exchange. I have a couple of really cute ideas in mind.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week.

Jen, your finished box is gorgeous. Did you stain the box or buy it that way. Love the piece you stitched for the top!
I just picked up the ornament issue but have not gone through it. Nice job on the ornament that you stitched.
Enjoy the stitchers retreat!

Beautiful work (as usual). So which sister gets the honor of owning it? Me or Bridget? Who? :} Can't wait for the weekend.
