At last I have had a little time to finish off a work in progress.
You might remember this little stitchery from a few days ago.
Well I decided it would make a good box top - but what kind of box?
I had bought a couple of little wooden pieces in a second hand shop some months ago. They have been in the cupboard just waiting for me to be inspired.
It turned out that the little piece of stitching was exactly the right size so I found a metal circle (button back) and glued some padding on both sides of the circle and attached the fabric. The back is finished with green felt to give a neat appearance and I am really pleased with this little project. I am not sure what I will use this for - perhaps pins or pot pouri.
The important thing is that I have made something from beginning to end. Quite an achievement for me at present with most of my time going into painting the house.
