Town Clock Stitchers Scott Manor House Exhibit

Each year my guild puts together a display at Scott Manor House in Bedford, NS.  This year it runs from Monday, July 5 to Sunday, July 11.  The exhibit room is open from 1-4 pm each day during that time and volunteers from the guild are always there to answer questions or get some stitching done.  There is also a tea room in the same building which sells tea and ice cream. I wasn’t able to go to last year’s exhibit but I will definitely be there this year.  In 2008 I posted pictures of the exhibit.


Outside the Queen’s Treasure Chest

Yesterday I went to Fabricville and got the pink satin fabric, pink satin ribbon, spray adhesive and matte board (from Michael’s) that I would need to construct the outside of the box.  I went by the list of things I would need that are on the inside cover of the instructions, but as I completed the outside and came to the details about the inside construction I realized that I needed Skirtex or Easy Felt, something along those lines.  So I finished the outside of the box and hopefully today I’ll get back out to Fabricville to pick up the stiffened felt.  Here are a few pictures.

This is the first time I have ever constructed a box covered in fabric.  Two of the lid edges and two of the main body edges are stitched together using invisible thread.  I also used more invisible thread to re-inforce the hinge on the lid and of the front flap.  Isn’t is just the cutest?  It’s small, only about 7″ wide and 4″ tall.  If I go to Fabricville today then I’ll probably have the inside finished in a couple of days, if I don’t go today then it could be a couple of weeks.  Either way, pictures will definitely follow of the final product.
