I mounted this tiny piece that I stitched up in April of 2009 on a little box that I picked up at the craft store. I was trying to find a way to mount it on a larger fabric covered box but in the end just took the easy way out. I painted the box with cranberry colored paint. I am going to start experimenting with covering boxes with fabric as well as paper.

This piece was a freebie offered by Blackbird Designs. I'm sure many of you remember it since you also stitched it! The stitched area is only 2 x 3 1/2 inches. This is a little gift for my daughter Claire, whose birth year is stitched next to her name.
I also made friends with my sewing machine again and stitched up this cover for my ereader since I couldn't find a pre-made cover that would fit. I always want to have a "do over" when I finish something! I had a little trouble interpreting the pattern I purchased off of Etsy. If I make another one I probably would leave off the smaller pocket on the inside but for the most part I am happy with it.
No other stitching photos to share at the moment. I'm working on a little La D Da piece called Leaping Cat. Shouldn't take long to finish this one. I pretty much abandoned the Christmas ornaments I started as well as another little piece I want to give to my daughter.
Now, if I wasn't so warm and cozy as well as lazy I'd get myself to the nearest Redbox and rent a $1 movie. Maybe tomorrow...
