Pat B is one of the Guild’s very accomplished embroiderers and she loves to make decorative boxes.
An etui is a small ornamental box for holding needles, thimbles etc.
We have been photographing a series of her boxes for the Members Gallery and I couldn’t resist sharing this etui that Pat designed with you. If you’d like to look at the detail just click on any photo to enlarge it.

….this wall is full of crafty things:
…..and this one has a relaxing view through the window..
And guess who’s enjoying all this?
Pat says that this little creature gets very upset if it’s mistaken for a cat or a dog…….it is its own whimsical self!
