Christmas cross stitch gift

Finally I have pictures to show of the gift I have been stitching on for my Mom the master quilter.Luckily when I went to my local cross stitch shop 'The Sampler' in Toronto they were just putting in an order for needlework boxes. Here is the finished project.It is from LHN. I left off the top and bottom part of the design but I think it looks good with the dark wood in the box.I am anxious to see how my Mom likes it . She could put a lot of different things in the box. Won't be long now. More Christmas pics tomorrow.
