Cigar Box Cover


This is a cover I did while at the CQI retreat this last fall. I just love the leopard velvet print in it. I tried something new on this piece -- I used a stencil to do the gold star in the center. I layered a gold patch and a gold button on top of that. I gave it to my husband and he was so thrilled he asked me if I could keep it in my sewing room for him. LOL! Well - I like it. Haven't found a use for it yet. The lid slides off.

Your box block turned out lovely,... er, handsome. Oh heck - it's beautiful and I love it. MEN! ;-) I've been missing you lately on the list. Hope all is OK. Are you going to the Retreat this year??? Hugs, Cathy

Husbands! Can't live without 'em, can't always get 'em to love the things we love....well, maybe the children.
Glad to see you posting again!
