Box of Delights

This box has been with me for longer than Niamh's been around but it's only over the weekend that it actually reached a finished state!

It's definitely worth the wait!

Gorgeous new box

And I love the base of the box

The inside is as beautiful as the outside, although it's taken me 2 years to get it just right.

The inside is as gorgeous as outside

Every piece of the inside is stitched in a different stitch pattern - great fun!

How many monkeys can you .....


I love the top of this box

Good enough to eat!
