After lunch yesterday with Maria, I made a quick stop at an antique store and I found these wonderful old, chippy painted trim pieces. The wheels started turning...ok they turned with loud squeaky noises since they don't get used much nowadays. Let's see...now where was I going with this...oh...I stitched up Love Letters last year from BBD and it's a small cutie but I just couldn't decide what I was going to do with it. Then I had a wonderful idea, what if I took the block of wood and attached the stitching to it. Oh that would be amazing but how do I do it? I mulled that over last night and finally came up with this.
I'm just loving this idea and it fits perfectly in with the BBD Noel that I stitched in 2009. I still need to add some greenery to the cabinet so try to imagine a little fresh cedar laying there. I paid $8 for the wood and the stitchery was done from stash odds and ends but I think it makes a real statement. What do y'all think?
