Color Delights-Camouflage by Kathy Rees

My ANG Keystone Garden Chapter had this as program last year and I finished stitching it in May 2014 (https://melitastitches4fun.wordpress.com/?s=Delights&submit=Search). Well, I finally “finished” it. I did have a nice Sudberry House Walnut Box. I covered the mounting board with a smaller piece of felt. Then, I laced it side to side on the back.

And, I used my new Kreinik Custom Corder for the first time.

And, it turned out nicely! Attaching the braid was the hardest part & I expect that I can do better next time. But, I am happy with it. Practice makes perfect.  As long as you don’t use a magnifier to examine it, I think it is good or else I wouldn’t give it as a gift. Merry Christmas to Terri D from my shuffleboard league at the Philadelphia Quartet Club who ended up with the box at our Santa gift exchange (steal). It was a great evening with some wonderful women!

Box, finished
