Keepsake Box Finis

Keepsake Box - Blackbird Designs
32 Count Picture This Plus linen - Fresco
Various overdyed cotton floss

I finished up Keepsake Box on the train last night. Super quick stitch, I think I might make another for my sister for her Christmas gift. Same colors even as I have plenty left of each skein. :-) Tonight I'll paint the box and pick out the fabric for the lining.

I'm back to St. Reatham. I didn't get much done this morning because I fell asleep and last night I didn't stitch at all. Instead, I ripped out the block I didn't like from my BoINK. After that, I wasn't in the mood for anything else. Pulling out previously stitched work always does that to me. What a buzz kill frogging is. It was my biggest hope that I would finish this piece by the end of the year but I think it's time to face facts. I have a ton to finish off and I don't think there is any way I can get it all finished. But I'll leave the year 2008 as that will end up being the year that I worked on it the longest. So it all works out. ;-)
