A rather good buy!

Well that's what I thought when I got this old needlework box!

I won it on a local auction site and I'm rather pleased with it....


Wooden needlework box

Hand painted flowers
It does need a bit of work ....new hinges...a screw or two missing.....a sand down...a varnish....but it is a beauty! Dad will be arriving for a visit on Sunday.....guess this will keep him busy  :D

To those participating in the IHSW....which happens to be this weekend....hope you get loads done! I'll be stitching along too....inbetween the bits planned for the long weekend....there's Rio 2 to watch....a picnic in the park with friends....a morning at the spa for a massage (mmmmm)....that's just a few of the things on the go that will take place between oodles of stitching!!

Have a great weekend all :)

Take care

What a beautiful box. Between this and your recent buy of the wooden jewellery box, do I see a theme emerging? :)
