A small piece of stitching and working on an exchange

I did a small bit of stitching last weekend for a round plastic 'box'.  I purchased this Keep-Sake plastic box  while on vacation in Puerto Rico some time ago and it has come in handy to store my pins.  The motif comes from the 'The Big Book of Cross Stitch Designs by Reader's Digest.  I used white ric rac braid to cover the edges and a piece of floral  fabric to cover the bottom of the box.  This was very easy to complete to my surprise. I was thinking that I would encounter some difficulty getting the fabric glued on to the plastic, but not so.  It turned out well in my opinion.

Design: Motif from The Big Book of Cross-Stitch Designs by Readers' Digest

Threads: DMC recommended
Fabric: 32 count White linen

Trim: Ric rac braid
Finished as: box for pins

A Pending Exchange

I am currently involved in an exchange on the Hooked on Exchange Board.  I am happy to say that I have completed the stitched piece and will be adding the finishing touches this weekend.  I'm hoping that my partner will be please with it!  Will have pictures to show when she receives it probably at the end of June.

A Stitching Rotation

I have some stitching which I just have to work on on a rotation basisI need to do this if I want to stitch all  my patterns,  freebies included.  So I started on that last night.  Hopefully it will work out as long as I have the time but I'll see how it goes.  Wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy stitching!
