dusted off

Well the finishing off continues.........today I dusted off the light box that Gary made for me before we got married (wonder if he would got to so much trouble now! Im sure he would) When I asked him at the time if he would make one for me I was assuming that it would be A4 size, well its not its actually huge and he went to so much trouble to make it for me- getting special fluorescent globes to light it from inside and piano hinges for the lid.  It was really a lot of work and I really appreciated it then as I still do.
Ive decided to add some embroidery and possibly a bit more appique onto the round robin mini quilt that I got back recently.
So the light box had to come out so that I could trace the design onto the fabric - one of the ladies in the round robin had kindly included a design in the bag when my block came home so Im using that
Im also enjoying doing some hand work again - and in between stitching on this Ive been also doing a little bit of work on my needleturn block - its almost done - thank goodness!

Nice! My lightbox is either the glass topped coffee table with an extension lamp under it or the sliding door in the family room!
