Back to Blogging!

It's great to be back and to blog again after a break from the computer and so I think  it is about time I let you in on what I have been stitching over the past weeks.  But first, I wish to thank those of you who visited and left a comment and those of you who follow my blog.  Thank you all for your encouragement.

Over the past weeks, I have been experimenting on making a box from cardboard (I think the French calls it 'cartonnage') for my buttons.  The experiment was somewhat successful but with a few flaws in between which I hope to have rectify when I attempt my next box. The stitched piece is a freebie from the SAL Collection de pinkeeps 2009 organised by Maryse. I love the autumn colours she chose for the month of October which is my birth month.  The box took me longer than I had anticipated but I am pretty much okay with it. Will show more in my next post!
