I am always on the look out for things I can use to display or cover with stitching projects.
Katy and I went to West's Rangers Station yesterday.
It is an old Forest Rangers Station that sells stuff.
Can't say they are antiques but, it is stuff.
I picked up this old wooden bread bowl.
I have coveted some of the ones I have seen on other blogs.
I cleaned everything with Murphy's Oil Soap.
Great display for pictures...my washing machine. LOL
This is a small cedar box, tourist rememberance from Eagle River, WI.
It's about 4"x6".
Can't you picture a little something on top?
I think it would be perfect for scissors.
I think this must be an old cigar box.
It is in really good shape.
I didn't measure it but, I think it is about 6"x10".
It has a nice flat top, perfect for a stitched piece.
I have not had a lot of time to stitch.
The company left on Friday and we went bumming yesterday.
I spent the day doing laundry and cleaning.
The next two weekends may be really busy too.
The summer has flown by.
I did finish the socks.
I have been working on Freedom House Button Sampler by Homespun Elegance.
Hope you had a good weekend and had some stitching time.
Thanks for the great comments.
My sister loved the basket.
It was a huge surprise especially, since it was sent in a rather large box.
Have a wonderful week and
Keep on Stitching.
