Peacock smalls

Leslie here - tomorrow I head for the Needlework Guild of Minnesota's retreat. It's a fabulous event. Saturday night there's a vendor room and Broken Wheel Woodworks will have a sale table. Greg has made a special box to fit the peacock smalls Pam designed (box lid, needle case, scissor fob). Also a sampler that will fit on the hornbook or in a frame (my WIP). The designs will be freebies with the purchase of a box. Here they are in all their glory!

The boxes and hornbooks come in a variety of lovely hardwoods. Here are the boxes that must stay home due to lack of hinges.

And here is the box and cart Greg made for me to transport the goods. (Don't tell the Candaces with whom I'm traveling {my sister Amy calls them the Candi} because I don't think there will be room for their jammies in the car now!)
