Nan's Box

Remember Faye won the 1st competition to have a piece of the 40yr old silk made into an embroidered box. Well this was her choice of the fabrics and here is the finished box.
As this fabric was the one that Faye said reminded her of Nan the most this became a very special project to complete. I have remade the box twice!! (1st because I thought it too big and 2nd it just looked wrong). Faye has the box now and says she knows just what to put in it.
(I have an inkling lets see if I'm right so over to you Faye.)

There are still 4 pieces of silk left so keep watching for a chance to win one and an embroidered box made with it.

  1. Mrs. A., you really amaze me with your incredible talent to build a box and fasten fabric about it so intricately, without a seam out of place and hand stitched so perfectly! How do you do it? I just love my lovely box I won from you - the embroidery really is fabulous; pictures give it no justice, really. You've also given me a great idea to fill it with! :-)

  6. I haven't done it intentionally but if you look at the closed box front the patern is making an 'N' in italics. Is that spooky or what!!!

  7. It is spooky! It is also a beautiful box and at the moment is in my bedroom because I don't want to put it in the snug yet as no one else will see it and I need to tidy up! I'm putting my flower and charm stash in it. xxx
