The Giveaway Box

FINALLY, Mya is going to get the wool box that she won in my last giveaway!   I have to admit that I'd like to keep it for myself but it was made especially for her so away it will fly next week.   Mya, if you see this, keep in mind that it's much prettier in real life - my digital camera leaves a little to be desired when it comes to taking pictures - OK, OK, it's probably me and not the camera LOL

Inside is beautifully spot dyed wool
Front panel has beaded rolled wool worms
Little bird is cotton with beaded paper wings and crown,
wire legs, and is holding a rolled wool worm;
top panel hangs over a little for easy opening
Back panel has couched wool roving
with beaded wool center
Side panel with beaded rayon ribbon leaves
and beaded wool pennies

Side panel with shirred wool worms

I hope you enjoy it Mya!
