Arriving around 1:30PM, we were just in time for the "free" tour of the mill.
What an adventure ! Who would've thought so much work went into those little boxes.
After the tour, we visited the gift shop, jam packed with primitive gifts; specially Shaker and Colonial boxes. I was delighted when DL agreed to finish one of the little unfinished embroidery boxes if I would make a cushion top for it.
As he stained and urethaned the box, I worked on 3/4" hexies.
Today the cushion top was glued to the box.
I am so pleased with the finished product, I just had to show you all...
What d'ya think ?
I love it. A true labor of love...
And sew on...
