Feeling Accomplished!!

I love the feeling of accomplishment when I actually finish stitching a piece and then really "finish" it!! And I'm enjoying that feeling right now! I finished La-D-Da's Bird In Hand last night and made it into a cute box. I got the paper mache box at Hobby Lobby, spraypainted it Espresso Brown (which is what I had on hand), and lined it with some fabric I had in my stash which was absolutely perfect for the piece ~ the pinwheel flowers on the fabric really matched the pattern. All I needed to do was drab it some with some Rit Dye (Tan). Then I mounted the stitched piece on top of the box and used some chenille that I also dyed to trim around it. Ta-Da!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful, peaceful Thanksgiving! Now, go forth and stimulate the economy!!!!


  1. Love it!!
    I made a box something like that, but made a copy my stitched piece and used that for the box top.
    Have a great weekend!
