Here's part two of the series about the spring covered box.  This shows the back (or it could also be the front, depending on your viewpoint).  You should be able to click to embiggen.

    Hi Mary Ann
    Love your little chicks in their nest - clever bit of embroidery!
    I'm fairly new to crazy quilting, so I have been keeping copies of all your stitchery to help me along this journey!
    Many thanks.

    Just beautiful. I really studied your stitching. I love it all. I like that velvet rick rack seam besides what everyone else has mentioned already.
