The Box is Finished

Yeh----it is all stitched up-amd I am pleased with the outcome.
It was a very time consuming job stitching all the individual pieces together and the more pieces I had stitched together the harder it became but I got there in the end.
I have tried to take the best photo that I could without showing some of my donkey stitches (big and uneven) so that you still believe that I am a neat sewer.





At least it hasn't become another UFO tucked away somewhere.

Your box is beautiful Doreen, and even though I looked really hard, I couldn't see any bad stitching! It is something to treasure and definitely worth all that effort.

Donkey stitching? That's a stitch I've never heard of - til now. Interesting - must google that and see what comes up. (yes, I'm kidding). Seriously - your box looks pretty perfect to me!
