I am doing a major HAPPY DANCE!!!!
During our 2011 retreat we decided again on a group project. We chose With My Needle's---My Needle's Worke Box. All the stitching was done and we had a finishing day scheduled for months.
This last Saturday was the day, actually we started finishing on Friday night which is our usual stitching night.
I am so glad we started on Friday because we need those hours plus the 8 or so hours we worked on Saturday. In fact I need a couple hours today to finish up my smalls. I only had one thread winder, the needlebook and the scissor fob to finish.
So Jill--Purple Peacock, Jackie-no blog and I worked together and got this box finished. Our other stitching friend Chris did join us on Friday and since she had her box together was a help to us on starting our boxes.
I am so glad to have great stitching buds, it always helps so much to have the support and help when doing major finishing like we did. As the saying goes--Many hands make light the work.
So here are the pictures of my finished box:
This is the view of the front. I stitched this project on 32 count Belfast Baby Lotion with DMC threads.
Here is one side.
The back side.
And the other side.
This is the top of the box. I just love the button.
And of course the bottom of the box. You can see that we used pins for the feet on the bottom.
Here is a view of the inside and the inside top of the box. Each side of the box has a pocket if you look closely.
These are all the smalls. Two thread winders, a needle book and a scissors fob.
All in all this was a fun project and made more fun because we made it a group effort. I really enjoy
doing these kinds of projects as a group, sometimes you just need the support to get you through.
Thanks girls for a fun couple of days--even though by 5 pm on Saturday I had enough of finishing:)
We had worked about 4 1/2 hours on Friday and about 8 or so hours on Saturday.
Can't wait until we get together to finish next years project.
Hopefully I will be posting more on what I did this summer.
Thanks for stopping by.
