Gift Idea #2: Caron Collection Tiny Treasures in a Box

Lois Caron's Tiny Treasures charted needlepoint pattern is a great source of quick gift ideas. She's provided nine designs for you to choose from, some on 18-ct canvas and others on 24-ct congress cloth. All are designed to fit into the top of Sudberry's Mini Box. Dawn and I whipped up a couple of the designs so you could see just how lovely they are!

These small canvaswork designs are also a great way to use up those threads left over from other projects. Each design requires just a few lengths of several threads. The design for the top box used one color of Caron Collection Watercolours and one color of Caron Collection Snow. You could also use Rainbow Gallery Silk Lame instead of the Snow for a slightly different effect. For the bottom box, I used five colors of Thread Gatherer Silk 'N Colors instead of Watercolours. You're limited only by your imagination and your stash.

We're offering a limited quantity of kits for that last-minute holiday or hostess gift. The Tiny Treasures Kit includes the chart, the box, and a piece of canvas for only $31.00. You supply the threads. Hurry on over to the Catalog and order yours today!
