I love boxes, I really do, I love opening up a box and peeping inside.
Don't ever let me near Pandoras box!
My parents have a lot of silly sayings that are quoted on family occasions. One of them was to say " All this and more will be revealed when the people open Joanna Southcotts box" I think it relates to a religious prophet but I don't know. They say that the phrase was printed in the newspaper classified ads and always made them laugh. Well I don't think my box will hold any great conclusions to life but it will be handy on that shelf for all those bits of lego, playmobil and marbles that I come across when I am cleaning up. They can all go In there until they are suddenly needed again.
You know in that way an 8 year old suddenly needs a helmet for a playmobil viking and won't spend more that 38 seconds looking for it.
I mode this box and my patchworking group. It has a square base and 8 triangles around it. It was easy and quick to do and may well go on my list of quick and easy presents.
I know, we do have some odd books!
