I finished the Toy Chest!!

Front: Note the teardrop bead and hedebo closure.


Back:  You can just barely see the three hinges.

With all the toys inside:
I am tickled pink with how it turned out.  It was a lot of work but the putting together went really well.  I think that is because it is well-designed and engineered.  Thanks Betsy!
I've printed out my boarding passes.  I'm so excited.  I'll tell you all about my trip when I get back next week.

  7. Your toy chest looks amazing and I am even more amazed by how much work you achieve each day, I only seem to get an hour or so in the evenings. I am so jealous of the lovely projects you are able to get in the US but do enjoy looking at them all via the internet. I look forward to seeing your next project.
