ILCS Spring Kit in a Container Exchange


Object: Create a container and fill it with a cross stitch kit.

What I Did: I bought a plain wooden container with handles at Michaels. I painted it seafoam green, embellished it with spring "foamies" and added a pretty pink bow. Taking into consideration my partner's preferences and interests, inside I put the chart "Dragon of Hope" by Dragon Dreams, along with a needle, 11ct aida and all the floss necessary to stitch it up. I hope Roxanne in CT likes it.

The final result looked like this:
