Honeybee Hill Box

Another week has flown by -- I can't believe we're almost to April 15th!!!  Tax season is almost over and I'm ready to take some extra days off!  Yesterday was very nice here in the Chicago area -- it was windy but the temp's were in the mid 60's and I was able to open some windows to get some fresh air blowing through the house.

I finished Blackbird Design's Honeybee Hill Sampler and mounted it in the handmade shaker box by Lone Elm Lane Designs.  The box itself is just beautiful -- very sturdy and extremely well made.

Thanks for visiting with me today and all the wonderful comments you leave.  I appreciate each of them!

Have a great week:)
