Hand embroidery

Late last year, I picked up a needle and thread and tried making buttonhole rings. They worked well, so I found a piece of hand-painted silk for a background, attached the rings and kept going with more stitches, beads and shisha mirrors. Here's the result - I hope to use it on a box lid but haven't found the right size box yet.

This is lovely I hope you do finish it as it would be a pity for it to be a UFO

Gorgeous Monica and I just love the colours. You could always make your own box - take a look at the Three Creative Studios free project site. They are very easy to do. I agree with Sharon, it is too beautiful not to be on display.
