Needle Lace Leaves

 While working on my leaf box project I came across this great free pattern for making needle lace leaves.  I'm going to do a few of them for one of the sides of the leaf box.  The detailed explanation and photos can be found on howdidyoumakethis.com
 A third leaf started couched down on paper.
 3 edges for the top of my leaf box finished.
 Haven't decided yet on what I'll do with the 4th side.  Leaves of some sort :)
 Am also doing a bit of  hardanger to make a few ornaments for Christmas gifts.  This pattern comes from Beverly Merritt's Heritage Hardanger for Christmas.  It's the Gladys design.
Now to make some tassels and attempt to put them together.  It's been awhile but the instructions are excellent so that helps a lot.

  12. The box is coming along wonderfully, I think it's going to be great! Will there be any cutwork on the Hardanger ornaments? You've used beautiful threads, and they're looking good so far!
