Chop Chop Woman - Finished Jack In A Box
It is done.......
This is the top of Jack's box. He asked to see the box that my son was making to hold his ashes. When his sister saw him carrying the box, she asked what he had. He answered "Jack in a Box!". He thought the top of the box looked plain while the sides had fancy panels. I said that I planned to stitch a top for it. He told me "Chop Chop Woman - I don't have all day." I told him that I couldn't do it because he had yet to give me the dates to put on it. Now the one year anniversary is looming over my head. I finished this piece today. I will frame the Love Is .. Sampler that this is based on. I want to display the sampler near the box. I was puzzled as to how to do this. I wanted a small, very tall, light colored wood table to set the box on. Guess what? I have it!! It is called a bar stool. (Quite fitting.) This particular bar stool is too high for me (or most people to sit on). It is perfect to set the box on. It is a sad day but I am glad to have this done.
