An overused expression, perhaps, but the target idea is always a welcome one - some fresh way of looking at things. In this case, Becky has been thinking outside of the box, specifically on top of said box's lid.
She's stitched up two of the seasonal mandalas that were featured in Just Cross Stitch last year. She stitched the Summer Mandala (top) on 22 count hardanger fabric and found it fit perfectly into this 4" display black box by Sudberry. Autumn (below) was done on 32 count fabric and fitted into one of their larger oak boxes. Both were stitched up with DMC, which goes to show how nicely something can be made from our favorite ubiquitous cotton floss. Becky says she's finished the Winter Mandala and the JCS Ink Circles Christmas ornament too. Looks like someone has put their JCS subscription to great use this year!
