It's an ornament... It's a box.... It's just cool!

Okay, so the question is what else can you do with an ornament sized odd shaped canvas other than make it into another ornament? What if you want to enjoy it year round? Well, you can applique it to just about anything. Jeans, jackets, purses, totes.

Why not take it a step further and applique it to a box top. That's exactly what we did.

One of my dearest customers called me and said, she had finished stitching my "Stitch Ornament" but she didn't know what she wanted to do with it. She didn't want it to be an ornament. She wanted a box. She had antique thread spools from a friend of hers and they were to be the feet. That's where we started. Creativity took us the rest of the way. Here's the results. I hope you enjoy it as much as we are.

No calorie Chocolates

Okay, if you know me, you know I love cupcakes. I like all small food, but cupcakes are my favorite. It goes with my attention span - short.... my love of sprinkles - bling included.... and generally my need, yes need for dessert.

Now if you are wondering what yummy lo calorie dessert is actually tempting enough for this girl, well check this out. EyeCandy Needlearts has added to her line the cutest ever cupcake canvas. There's also a slice of cake and a donut if you would like a set of tempting desserts. Susan Allanson wrote the stitch guide for this canvas and had it finished as a charming standup with a yummy chocolate themed bow on top.
