My Latest Craft Project

I have owned this little wooden box for a long time.  I thought it would be
just the thing to store some quilting squares I am piecing for my newest
quilt.  So while we were watching all of the pre-game shows for
the Super Bowl, I decided to paint it.

 I painted the lid to look like a quilt.

Here is a bit of my pre-cut stash.

Happy springlike colors.  Too bad it's so very dark today
and taking a good pic is next to impossible.

Bentley ~ where are you hiding?  Don't you want to have
a bath tonight?  Of course he does not, but he really, really
needs one!

  1. well, since it is going to hold quilting squares...that is very very cool to paint the lid like a quilt.

  2. How absolutely perfect for your quilting squares! The quilt top painted top looks just like a quilt. I love it and will show this to my quilting Mother-in-law!
    Love the pretty patterns and spring colors.

  3. This turned out so cute! I think it's perfect for your quilting also!

  4. Oh that is so pretty awesome job , nice photos to ! Bentley isn't the only one that needs a bath so does our Miggs but we take her to the groomers for that as she also gets a complete doggie spa day in the spring lol . Thanks for sharing . Have a good day !

  5. You just decided to paint it? That's beautiful! You've got skills. :)

  6. That's very pretty. I like it. We never tell Kane it is time for a bath or he would hide. We just scoop him up and put him the tub. It's always a surprise but within a few minutes he is lovin' it. Sometimes he almost falls asleep standing up.

  7. Very sweet paint job. A nice thing to do during the game. I crocheted during the game. :)

  8. Very cute. What a difference paint made to that sweet little box!

  9. I love it! Look at that sweet quilt pattern you painted on top! You're good!
    Be a sweetie,
