Have I posted this ?

I can't remember if I have posted these pictures. I've had a quick look back and don't think I have. 

It's a wooden box that I have painted in pink then added G45 bohemian papers and then little sewing trinkets from my stash and flowers. I made it for my crafting besties Mum. She sews and has made me some gorgeous things including a wonderful Apron and craft tool holder. She is a lovely lady and very thoughtful. I'm told she loved it. 
Well thanks for looking, that's it from me tonight. It was my 1st day back at work today and I'm so tired early night I think. Hope everyone is well and enjoying the evening. Take care xx
