Sunday Stash April 15, 2018

No fabric in or out this week. There were opportunities to buy, but nothing caught my fancy.

I did buy a Craftsy embroidery class during their $14 sale yesterday. That doubled my spending for the year.

I had one finish, the box with the tiny stitchery on it.
bird boxI don’t usually do crafty things, but I’m pleased with how this looks. I basted the bird around something similar to Timtex and glued it to the lid. The metallic edging is a trim I had left over from my crafting days. I carefully glued the trim, tucking it under the stitching as I went.

A member of the guild hand painted the boxes and stamped patterns on them. The box is under three inches square.

Fabric In: 2.5 yards

Fabric Out: 1.875 yards

Net Fabric Added: 0.625 yard

    Adorable! I have some oval boxes I need to paint and do some stitching for. What a great way to display your stitching.
