CQ Victorian Box

While I think about my next project, I thought you might like to see my Victorian Box, I designed and had published on back in 2004!

You can pop over here and get the pattern....very easy to do and with Christmas now not too far away, makes a great gift, or just make one for can also make it in just plain fabric (fussy cut) without the embellishing.
Cqmagonline comes out quarterly and as the name suggests, is a great free online mag for lovers of all things to do with embroidery, especially crazy patchwork, beading and embellishing.
The staff and girls that contribute the articles do a great job and well worth a visit...I'm sure you'll be inspired.
I had forgotton it was there, but scroll down to the bottom of the page and read my profile.

I'm starting to miss doing my Crazy Patchwork, I think that's what I'll be doing for Christmas presents this year.

Must go and make a start to the day..
