Candy Dish done!

I finally got another project done that has been waiting for awhile!  I had this candy/coaster dish from Sudberry House I had been meaning to put some crazy quilting in.  Done now!  I love these pieces that are ready to accept needlework.  This one has a mahogany base and a glass dish that fits into it.  The needlework fits into the wooden base and then the clear glass dish fits on top of it.  The dish protects the needlework and is also removeable in case you need to clean it - some of those candies could be sticky!  lol


Here it is seen from the top with the glass in place,

and here is the little dish taken out

to get a good photo of the crazy quilted insert.  Now the reflections of the glass are gone you can see all the pretties clearly in the photo.  I love projects that are finished and I am happy with the way this turned out.  I think it would make a nice little gift - too large for a coaster but nice for a candy dish or somewhere to put your keys when you come in (I need that so I could find them when I go out!)  or to empty your change out of your pockets at night?  Anyway, another UFO bites the dust and off it goes into the Etsy shop!

I had never heard of Sudberry house.... I loved their footstools but very pricy but had lots of great ideas...especially the key rack (speaking of keys) I bet I have frames in the barn that would be perfect for that...
