Finishes!!

Hello friends!  I have some finishes to share...  Yes - finishes as in more than one!  I finished my Prairie Schooler piece last week, but I wanted to put it in its final form before I showed you, so I started one of the pieces I had kitted up for next year, and I finished it already! : )  So, first my new finish -- Heart in Hand's "Steeple Sampler", stitched on 28 ct over 2 on some mystery Jobelan fabric.  I changed out all the colors to some I had been given in different exchange boxes and ... TA DA...


It was such a sweet stitch!!

Now onto my first ever box finish.  I bought a wooden box at Joann's and my dd painted it for me.  I lined the inside with felt and mounted the sampler on the top.  I do hope my son's friend likes it!






Thanks for stopping by today!  I don't know what I'll work on next, I'll have to dig through my basket and see what calls my name. : )

Blessings!

Tricia

Your box finish is lovely! The chenille trimming is pretty and sets it off well. If your friend's son doesn't like it, I will give it a good home :p
