    Secrets Box

    Hi everyone,

    Here's a little something I came up with for a Christmas workshop I'm giving in a couple of weeks - it was originally going to be a tree hanging decoration but when I began to join the units together, I though it was so cute as a little box that I changed my mind! I made six blocks in the Secret Garden variation of Cathedral windows then whipstitched them together. The base block, I put the 'flower' inside - as a 'secret'! It's all hand sewn and took me a couple of hours in total. I think next time, I'll include a square of Fast2Fuse behind each block to give it a bit more stiffness. The theme of my workshop is bowls and mats so this will ft in nicely I think - it's just a little extra for the over-achievers if they finish everything else! What do you all think? I thought it would make a lovely Christmas gift filled with sweets or bath pearls and could then be used for storing rings and things! Even as a little hand sewing box - threads and thimble in side and needles stuck in the lid!

    It would be an ideal little box to keep a little sewing kit in - tape measure, needles, small scissors etc., and would be a lovely gift. Even if you put tea bags and coffee bags in it, it would be lovely.

    Now aren't YOU the clever one!
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.
