Crafty Things

Congratulations to King, a Wire Fox Terrier, who make “Best Of show” at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York City. He is a beautiful dog.

I have several baskets on shelfs.  The other day, I decided to see what was in them as I hadn’t looked in them for a while. One of the baskets had pretty boxes that I had embellished.  I had forgotten them.  When I put them in the basket, I had intended to put a shelf over the computer station  to hold them.  The shelf is still not up, but there is hope that I will paint or stain it some day and put it on the wall.IMG_1998IMG_1999

The wire mesh boxes were embellished with flowers that were made out of paper.  The paper was stitched and pressed to make them more realistic.  Then the centers were filled with thread. IMG_1997They could hold small treasures.  .




IMG_2001I still have three empty boxes and several flowers. When the shelf is up, I’ll finish them.  Then they can be with the others for a pretty display.



IMG_2003Also in the basket were three small boxes that I made from greeting cards and a photograph.  Greeting card boxes are very small, but are a nice way to present a small gift.


IMG_2004The bottom box is make from a photo of Miss Molly.  The photo was a little larger than a greeting card, so made a larger box.

I may find other forgotten treasures when I check out baskets and bins.

I’ve been working on  two different challenges.  One top is finished and is ready to quilt.  The other is still being pieced.  It has a lot of pieces and will take a while to finish.  I’m pleased with it so far.

Have a great day and happy quilting.
