A few more finishes ...




Well, it's back to work tomorrow. Though we didn't get all the things we hoped to do completed this week, I did have a very good crafting week. I finished the above piece (Winter Bird Delight by Praiseworthy Stitches) over the past week and decided to finish it as a box. I love the color purple and was very happy to find the right shade of purple to go with this piece.



I also finished PS Scatter Eggs this week. This was a super fast stitch. I started it yesterday and was happy to finish it before the weekend was over. I'm not sure what I will do with this one. It will probably go into the chest for now. When I purchased the pattern and buttons, I didn't notice the fabric it was stitched on so the buttons would work. The model piece was stitched on a 19 count fabric over two. I have way too much fabric to buy another piece, but luckily Hobby Lobby had their fabric on sale and I found a light blue piece of 18 ct. I have enough to stitch the Scatter Sunshine piece also (I think).



Finally, I picked up some ribbon yesterday to finish the Peter's Cotton Knits box. I think it is perfect. Thanks for stopping by my blog. All of the comments are much appreciated. Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

That color is perfect for your box. The ribbon is perfect for Peter's knits too. Love Scatter Eggs- gotta do that one too.
