Box Tops

Years ago I stitched the quilt-style design on the right as an insert for the lid of the natural finish wooden box shown. I found the finished product charming so I’ve kept it in my living room ever since. But I goofed when I was preparing the one on the left. I had been planning to use the design for an ornament but for some reason I started it on 18-count Aida instead of 14-count, meaning it would be much too small when done. I finished it anyway and used it in the lid of another smaller box which I had received as a present. Bee motifs are a favorite of mine. πŸ™‚
