Had to have it.....

 I made a run to JoAnn's today with one of my stitching buds--Chris and I didn't NEED a thing but while I was wondering around the store I came across this sewing box.  I couldn't believe the fabric that was on this box.  I had made a couple of my stitching portfolio's in this same fabric about two weeks ago.  So I had to have the box!!!!

 This is really a nice size box to take on stitching events.  Plus it can double as a foot rest.

 Here are the two portfolio's that I made. That match so wonderfully.

 A view of the inside, a nice tray to hold the essentials and room for my stitching projects.  I just love it
.
 So while I was out today I also made a stop at Walmart for my Whitman's box.  I will be stitching With thy Needle and Threads new pattern--Strawberry Hill Sampler designed for this box.  I can hardly wait to get the pattern and stitch it. 

I hope everyone is having a great week.  I sure have had a great couple of days as I was stitching with friends all day yesterday--from 9 am until 10 pm, thanks to Chris who put it all together and then having lunch with Chris and doing some shopping for stitchy goodies today:)

Thanks for all the fun Chris.

Don't you love when things like that happen, Joan! The sewing box & portfolios look great together although I'm a fan of the footstool idea!

Glad you had a great day of stitching with friends.
