My Woodland Exchange Arrives

I saw that the Woodland Exchange I made for Tracy had arrived safely - but - I forgot to either take a snap or am just not smart enough to find it on my camera!!
So I lifted the snaps of the piece from the HOE II -


I stitched up Work basket's "Fox Forest" and then made it into a box. I used the recommended WDW and used a piece of Silkweaver Solo - that is a pale green for the linen.
Here is a snap of the inside...

... that is lined with an overall woodsy print and the little extras I included. I really enjoyed this Exchange and will be posting another on the HOE in a day or two.

I worked on another stitchy exchange last night so no snaps of those pieces.

There you go - its a short one today!! One more day to sign up for the Drawing
- sign up on Mondays post!

Thanks for stopping by!
Take care,
edgar
