Elizabethan pencil box all stitched

I forgot to include a photo showing the whole design in my previous post so here it is :-)
A few comments about this kit. The instructions were very good and had good diagrams explaining the stitches. Another thing that for me is very important is that the threads included in the kit were plentiful and at no point was I concerned that I would run short if I made an error and had to start over.
Below is a photo of the box in which the finished stitched design will go into. It came as you see without anything more. Have written to Barbara Jackson from Tristan Brooks Designs, the designer and seller of this Olde Colonial Designs box to make sure nothing had been forgotten like finishing instructions, little cardboard or something, but have not heard back from her yet. She may be out of town teaching or something so will put the finishing on hold for now and see what happens.

Now, moving on to some other projects. Need to think which one as I have quite a few already started and lots and lots not started yet but begging to be, so will see :-)

Terry, I am enjoying it, you can believe it.

Did a bit of rearranging on my desk so that I could give my new box a special place. I now feel almost like a queen with my special pencil box :-)
