Series - part 3

COVERED BOX - ONE END

This is one of the end pieces of the covered box.

Today I give you a quote from Leigh Hodges... "Whether one is twenty, forty, or sixty; whether one has succeeded, failed or just muddled along; whether yesterday was full of sun or storm, or one of those dull days with no weather at all, life begins each morning"

  1. Pretty box cover. I'm interested in how you managed to do cross stitch on satin. It looks to me like counted thread work, but I don't think you can count the threads in satin, can you?

    got the counted thread work on satin, but I'll let you explain.
