Embroidered Box

While looking through old photos, I found this one of a container I made in the style of Janet Edmonds. Everyone else had made one and I thought it was time I had a go! Not a very crisp photo but I was pleased with the result. Our textile group is having a workshop with Janet on 'caskets' later in the year which should prove interesting. I think Janet has two or three books in print but my piece was inspired by the Beginners Guide to Embroidered Boxes.

Containers created in different textiles and other mediums is something I would like to experiment with when I have time.

So is there a genie in there? Beautiful box and hope you get to make some more.

Thanks for the comments on my blog. I will take the advice gratefully and use it.
