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!!!
