My DMC Floss Case

My wonderful husband had this made for me for my birthday. It is mainly made of solid Rosewood .
It is 100 % wood except for the knobs. No screws,nails, etc.,The man that made it hand crafted every inlay and assembled every piece by hand. It is the most magnificent birthday gift I had ever received. It holds all the DMC floss with ease. It has a gold plate that says: "To Patti Love, Bob" under the lid.

I am stitching it on 40 ct linen using NPI silks.This is a free sampler chart from the Needleprint Blog sight. Our sampler guild Sampler Guild of the Rockies is doing it as a year long stitch along. It can be downloaded here.
