The Plastic Canvas Adventure chapter is now closed...

Until I get another urge, that is.  Here's the second box, in Bucilla cream tapestry yarn, which is probably going to be a present. I like very much how it looks a bit transparent.  The thing I don't like about needlepoint is how totally opaque it often looks, not my taste at all.  But stitching on transparent canvas in cream colored yarn, I liked that. This was stitching to watch DVDs by.







However, my rings for the Dorset buttons are on the way -- the first lot arrived, will work, but are small, and I have larger ones on the way.  Now I have great ideas about inserting a small ring inside a larger ring, but meanwhile I would like to get my other stitchings done.  

I already have ideas about how to create the Dorset buttons using my own pattern, or rather my own freeform path! I'm thinking planets and moons revolving or something.

Your plastic canvas box is really elegant. I'm looking forward to see what you do with the dorset buttons.....sure to stretch my creative imagination.
