F06 Beautiful Finishing 6 


Have you ever wanted to know the secrets of Beautiful Finishing? Learn Lisa’s expert finishing secrets which she uses to create this gorgeous sewing box designed just for this leaflet. This beautiful Winter Box is the first of four seasonal needlework boxes for you to finish yourself! The gorgeous lid top and sides are fully embroidered. When the lid is removed, the sides of the box drop down and show the interior with places for your needlework tools including scissors with a matching fob, and even a matching center pincushion! I’ve used some delectable overdyed silks, silk flosses, sparkling metallics and beads. Be prepared for a few new stitches, and enjoy the Cross Stitched areas too. The finishing is easy, if you follow Lisa’s detailed directions and coloured photos.. enjoy! See how easy Beautiful Finishing really is! - Thea
