Standing ovation! I sure want to try this... Suz
Another beauty! For the girls in the U.S. you can buy these wooden unfinished boxes at Hobby Lobby.
Oh,I love it Sue! I use to like to do wood burning projects but think this would be much easier/Lillian
Love the design, well done!
Lovely, thanks for sharing. If something like this ever comes my way, maybe I will be daring enough to try it now.
Beautiful == please write us a "tutorial" about all the details. We love your creativity.
wow oh wow ,I would be worried the needle would break
You did a wonderful job and I love your design. Kuddos for making this,
You managed it then - very nice
Beautiful work Sue. Looks great. Lyn
Oh gosh, how lovely - Jo
This is lovely. I have heard of doing this but never actually tried it
What a lovely project, is it difficult to embroider on balsa. I have not tried any thing like this but would like to have a go. Any special needle and thickness of balsa wood . Interested to hear of your expereince with this. Congraulations a great job well done. Sandra
Easy peasy and nothing to worry about at all.
So elegant and nicely done, Sue
Very interesting Sue. I have thought of getting some bolsa but worried how to and how thick and what if?.. you know what I mean You have done an excellent job.
The needle goes through the balsa easier than some fabrics! It just slips between the fibres.
Love it, Sue! It looks great.
How fun! I think I would like to try this. Excellent piece!
I've heard of doing this, it is very beautiful, love the simple floral design. Does it require a different type of needle or thread? Amazing that one can embroidery on wood without splitting it. Beautiful.
Nothing special required. The design shouldn't have too many small stitches. This design "dug in" a bit in places.
....and the gift comes to those who wait for the larger hoop...lovely!
This is beautiful Sue! What thickness balsa sheet did you use? Any special threads?
You are very brave to be trying something like this on your new machine :) thanks for sharing!
The sheets were 1.5mm thick. and 75mm wide. I stick them to the stabiliser with glue stick pushing them together so that the join is (mostly) invisible.
Very cool! Great recycling project.
This is gorgeous.
That is just so stunning. I've never sewn on anything other than fabric! You are an inspiration to us all. Love Chris
Nicely done Sue, ~hugs~
Lovely Sue. Your work is an inspiration to us. I am babysitting and enjoying a good look and a idea hunt. Thanks
A plain box is now a work of art.
Love it hugs

Sjoe....Stunning!!!Excellent work Sue..Love it,so Beautiful!!!!
