Large Keepsake Boxes
The range is divided into large, medium and small designs reflecting mainly their finished size, to make it a bit easier to choose the kind of project you would like. Smaller keepsakes tend to be quicker to stitch, but can be a bit more fiddly to assemble. Being small, they look adorable when done, but obviously hold less by way of trinkets or pictures. Larger keepsakes will usually have more stitching to do but can be easier to put together and will hold more and bigger things when done. In between are the happy mediums!
The large trinket boxes come in oblong and square shapes. The trinket boxes are lined with good quality 28-count evenweave fabric, carefully chosen to match the colours of the cross stitched design, and the lids are slightly padded. These kits contain stitching and lining fabrics, wadding, plastic canvas (ultra stiff for added strength), DMC threads, needle, charts and full instructions.
Country House BoxThis box is a companion piece for the Kensington square Box. It is the same size - 8 cms high, 17.5 cms wide and 11.5 cms deep - and has similar design features.
The cross stitching is worked on 16-count antique white aida, and the box has a dark green base and is lined with light grey evenweave fabric. The pictures around the sides represent the house and grounds of a country estate, showing the front and back views of the house, the gate and gate lodge and the water feature in the garden. Rhododendrons are blooming around the house and their bright colours are also found in the formal garden worked on the lid.
Inside the lid a corner of the garden is shown, with a dovecote and fluttering dove, and personal details may be worked inside the lid rim if you wish.
