Boxy Lady, done!

Phew! At last completed the Boxy Lady - 22 days late from dateline 31st March 2007! The heart-shaped box is part of a set which I bought about 2 weeks ago. The x-stitch design is from BHG: 2001 Cross-stitch Designs which I bought from MPH Midvalley last year. It is stitched on 14ct aida using a hand-dyed thread (cranberry red) given to me by June. The design has french knots, but I substituted it with tiny green beads!

I lined by box with furnishing fabric given by Emily. Since the fabric is pretty thick, didn't need to use interfacing. The cover is edged with a braid.
Am thinking of doing up the hexagan-shaped box (small) too when I've found a suitable design!
