Happy Mother's Day....

The perfect Mother's Day present....
Chocolate Dipped Strawberries.

My son Brian brought this wonderful treat for me today.
Not only did he buy these for me but he made them too!
Many mom's will be enjoying these because he made about 300 of them
today at work...who knew he was so talented.
I did receive 4 but I ate two of them before I thought of taking a picture.
These are all mine, 
I don't even have to share....
I am the only one in the family that likes strawberries.

 I thought I would show you what I've been working on.

These are wood and papier mache boxes.  
I was cleaning out some of my craft stuff and came across these.

I painted the boxes black and aged them with some shoe polish.
 The tops are all applique on black wool with hand dyed wool pieces.  
All hand stitched with blanket stitch with
a few french knots, lazy daisy and feather stitches.
I lined the bottom with black wool and I stitched a hand dyed heart in the middle.
I just love how these turned out and they were so much fun to make.

I might have to look for more boxes because I have a few more designs in mind.
I think I need to do some fall ones...sunflowers, pumpkins.
Just getting ready for my fall fairs!

These will not be on ebay but if you are interested in purchasing just email me and 
I can tell you a little more about them.
You can check what I have for sale on ebay just click here.

Happy Stitching
Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful Mom's!

Enjoy your day,
