Upcycled Stitching

I love rescuing bits of stitching from the thrift stores - my latest find was a really lovely petit point rose.
 Another thing I am always on the look out for on my treasure hunts are wooden boxes that can be used to showcase these bits of beauty.  This photo box was just what I needed for the petit point rose!
 It was a simple matter to take the box top apart and insert a bit of bridal satin for a backing and then the petit point.
 The result is what I hope will be a welcome gift for a friend for her birthday.
