Jake's Music Box Back From Finisher

Jake's music box came back just in time for Christmas. I am so pleased with the finishing.
I hope Jake likes it. This is a Princess and Me canvas and is supposed to be finished as an ornament but I wanted it as a stand-up and then decided to make it into a music box. I know the perfect spot in Jake's room for it (providing his mother approves).
I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Thank you for coming to visit us and for all your comments. I am especially thankful for the friends I have made through my stitching and the blog. I have been blessed to have been able to take classes from the most gifted and talented teachers - Amy Bunger, Tony Mineri and Ruth Schmuff. I look forward to all my upcoming classes with Amy, Tony and Ruth. I hope you get everything you wish for this Holiday Season. I have been blessed with the best present this year, Jake. He brings such joy into our lives. I can be having a bad day and he just brings a smile to my face and makes me remember what is really important. The only gift I want is more stitching time. I have so many wonderful projects that I want to work on and just wish for more time to stitch them.

I didn't realize you were finishing this as a music box - what a great idea! I like that you put "Nana, 2010" on the back. I wish I had remembered important details like that when I have sent pieces out for finishing. Jake will love it, I'm sure! Good job, Nana!

I love the music box. I'm glad to have your creative mind to give the rest of us great finishing ideas. Did you enlarge the canvas at all while you were stitching it to allow for the music box?
