Not just a box!


How fascinating this box is …… I’m like a kid in a toy store. Remove the lid and everything inside flops down flat …... remove the lid and everything inside flops down flat again …. and again …. and again. What fun it is to see this in action. Judith sent this to me as a swap for one of my tote bags. I just love the fabric choice and colours that she used to make this box.
I could not finish her tote bag before I had to suddenly leave to be with my terminally ill Mom. My parcel arrived while I was up north and it remained unopened for nearly five weeks. When my DH drove up for Mom’s funeral, he forgot to bring the parcel with him. Oh well …. but what a welcome parcel to open once I got home!

Now that I’m home, the tote bag will be first on my agenda to finish and mail out to Judith.

Thank you, Judith …… I love my needle box!

Have a great day!

Glad you are home, and thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I was deeply touched by you sharing about your mom. I miss mine too and know just how you feel. Making quilts and having quilting friends is a great comfort. Bless you. You will be in my prayers too.
