Box Finishing Class

This is all for the Box finishing class hosted by a fellow ILCS member.
I went to my Local Craft Store and they had 2 for $5.99 boxes.  I purchased the rectangular set and the square set.  I plan to use the 6x6 larger box for the luna moth chart. seen here

Rather then buy more fabric I went through my stash.  Mum was kind enough to give me some hand dyed Aida 18(we think).  If mum can't see the holes she gives it to me.  I feel bad for her eyes, but Yay for me. The picture really doesn't do it justice.  It's got light grey greenish blue accents.  There will be little border around the chart but it's nice to have more then the suggested grey fabric. 

I had most of the colors for the chart itself I only needed to order 1 blue and then the color variations.  It required the same purple as my HAED (like I really need any more purple to work with) This had me laughing for a good five minutes.  I also ordered the mill hill beads and the Kreinik braids from 123 stitch, those are hard to find at and of the stores around me.  My LCS had an unheard of 5 of the spools but they were the wrong colors. 

I am still stitching away on Dizzy Heights and the Vervaco wedding chart that a friend let me borrow.
