Weekend finishing

Greetings friends.


This weekend was filled with finishing for many customers.... And myself..... At last post, I had stitched the chart Down Virginia Way by Threadwork Primitives and the Sarah Tobias Pinkeep by Blackbird Designs..... A unique finish was in order, so, I found the most perfect box to paint, distress and wax....

Down Virginia Way~ Threadwork Primitives

The box was a simple unfinished lidded box I found at Hobby Lobby...

Distressing the corners made the look complete on the exterior..

The inside of the box needed a little dressing up... Or "dressing down" as I like to say when priming thing up....

I wanted a slightly padded bottom... And a padded tufted piece inside the lid.... Browns and blues are the overall theme....

With the Sarah Tobias Pinkeep sitting inside, I thought they made a nice set....
Thank you Sarah Tobias~ Blackbird Designs

I had fun with this finish..... Thanks again Dyeing to Stitchfor awarding me the chart and linen for this fun stitch....



Make it a great week....

Wow what a stunning box. Do you enjoy decorating the boxes as much as the stitching? You really do a lovely, neat finish.

Congrats again Faye on your prizes from Dyeing to Stitch. It is always wonderful to see what you will do with a design. It looks so cool on the box and Oh my, I love the tufted inside lid. The stitched pieces really compliment each other. What a sweet little treasure you have and you should be all smiles. They both turned out awesome, my friend. Hugs, Nan
