A Green Box

I painted the box from A Stitcher's Heart.  I wanted a teal color and I took the floss "Fennel" to Hobby Lobby with me to select a color.  I found a paint color that was close to the floss and thought I was all set.  Then I had to go to the bathroom.  I left the paint just outside the bathroom door.  When I came back, it was gone.   Was it the cosmos telling me to pick another color?
 I walked over to the paint and picked up the same color.  I looked at the box this morning and I don't like it.  It is too dark.

 I guess the paint matches the teal colored bird inside the box.

So what do I do?  I could try another color.  I could mix a color. I could just live with the color.  I could distress it with sandpaper like I did the Blackbird Designs box.  I have to think about this.

I stitched another Barbara Jackson egg.

I plan on finishing it off today.

I'm sunburned.  I put some stuff in a friend's yard sale yesterday.  I was out working in the sun and have some red bits today.  I also got 18,000 steps in.  That is almost a record.  Yes, I was tempted to take a day off from walking but I didn't.  Who knows if I will take time at the retreat next week to walk?  I usually do, but last year I got lost and barely made it back.


  1. Wow I love the box so much .its so pretty
    And your stitching is super lovely

  2. Good for you! I would probably still be walking somewhere, directionally challenged as I am.

    Teal is difficult. Usually too bold, hard to find a soft shade. Do whatever is necessary to make you love it.

  3. I personally like the color.
    But then, I like anything blue/green. :)
    Maybe if you want it toned down a bit you could Briwax it?
    The egg is very pretty.
