My husband Fritz designed and built the toy chest made of Oak and Walnut wood.  I created the top adding my own twist on a pattern/picture, Lumineux, I saw, in KeepSake Quilting magazine.  Each flower is appliqued and stitched differently.  The centre of the flowers are done with French Knots and quilting stitches.  The back of the toy chest has Mys's name which I designed and cut out on a scroll saw which I have never done before!  I added the felt flowers also done with French Knots.

We can't wait to give it to her for her birthday!!!

Deborah, you and your husband do beautiful work!  Maybe you can post another picture when Mya sees this chest for the first time.

What child wouldn't just love this. Your husband's woodworking is top notch. And, you, well, you have done such a wonderful job on the cushion. This should win a prize and I think there is a big smile coming that will be a big prize for both of you!!
