I promised quite some time ago that I was going to share some pictures of Christmas gifts that I received from Arcadia.
I had seen this stitched box on some French blogs and mentioned to her that I really liked the pattern. Well, wouldn't you know that she went ahead and made it for me! This design comes from a book entitled Cartonnage Brode Un Fil des Boites. I believe it is available through Elegant Stitch.
Arcadia also made this doll. Isn't she wonderful? I am amazed at her skill and patience. Can you imagine stuffing those long, pencil thin, limbs? That would try the patience of Job! This lovely doll sits proudly atop the armoire in my bedroom. She's high enough where the dogs can't get her but I can still admire her.
Thank you dear friend for these beautiful treasures!
