travelling Craft Box
There was me thinking yesterday that I hadn't got much to show you, then it dawned on me that now that Lori ha recieved the box that I can reveal what I added to it. I showed you in an earlier post what lovely things I took out, so here's what I put in before I sent it on it's merry way.
I won't do close ups of everything as you can see quite clearly most things. The purple pansy is a brooch and is the one I shared yesterday. The purple and green flower is a wire mesh ribbon brooch. I put in one of the cupcake pincushions too and a heart decoration. I enjoyed doing a coloured one for a change.
And so to the close ups... The bookmark was from an old WOXS Design Library featuring Indian themed designs.
So here is the next biscornu. It's the middle bit from the Rhodes butterfly design on Kincavel Krosses. I ended up stitching this twice as the first one didn't come out square, nothing to do with mis-counting but the fact the aida blocks weren't square. I'm going to make it into a sachet/mini cushion at some point so it won't go to waste.
Well tomorrow is valentines day and I've been busy making him a little present. I'll stitch him a card too if I have time. He liked the patchwork hearts I did for the ATC's so I might to a bigger version. I'll share this with you all in the week. nothing like leaving it until the last minute eh?! It's ATC swap week and I'm looking forward to some crafty post later this week with my swapped ones.
Just in case you think I've forgotten about the February biscornu, It's a work in progress lets say. I managed another hour on it yesterday and I would guess another 2 - 3 hrs stitching and then the making up. It's one I've designed myself and I'm looking forward to sharing it with you. I've been so busy with makes to meet deadlines, I'm going to meet myself coming backwards soon.
Hoepe you all have a good week. Thanks for reading. xx
