Stitchers Box with Pinkeep

Debbi contacted me and let me know that she received the exchange I made for her for the USEBB Easter Exchange. I made her a Stitchers Covered Box with a Pinkeep in the lid. This is my own original design :)

Design: Prairie Schooler ~ April Bunny ~ Prairie Year
Fabric: Hand stained 28 ct. linen
DMC Fibers my own Color combination
Box lined inside/outside with padded bottom inside

Pinkeep Inside Lid *closed*

Pinkeep inside lid *open*


Outside Beaded fringe embellishment

I had a good time figuring a plan out for this one :) I sure do hope that Debbi enjoyed her first exchange with us on the USEBB board. I wanted to do something original and special for her because this was her first exchange! If anyone is interested in the tutorial on this Stitchers Box...please go HERE!

Thanks again for all my visitors and comments!! I love reading them all and am so happy that you take time to come and visit me! Please come again soon! Until next time.....BIG {{hugs}} to you all!!!

  29. Oh what a cute box and pinkeep Vonna! It is just beautiful!! Thank you for the nice comment to my blog!! Diane was nice in her email to me and at least told me where some of the pattern came from, but I don't have the patterns she spoke of so I decided to try to stitch it from the picture. I am glad you like it and thought about it too. Her patterns are easier than most to try to stitch from the picture. I wouldn't try that on some things but Little House Needleworks is one that it can happen perhaps. I will soon find out.

  37. Vonna,
    What a great box! Was it real hard to do? About the little chick, I made him, it's 2 pieces of wool glued together. I do rug hooking now and then, so I always have wool on hand! I visit Michelle's blog, you are not gonna believe this, she looks like my Aunt Lois. Have a great day!

  40. Sorry about this, I have no way to contact you directly.

    Thanks Vonna for the info. Since we have the pattern for the stitching lady already and the spools shouldn't be too difficult...right? You know we could personalize it a little like maybe our name and beneath it needleworker. And maybe I'll follow your lead by stitching over 1!!

    My head is spinning with ideas already! I'll definitely let you in on it :)
