This weeks | By You | comes from reader, Elizabeth.

Elizabeth let us know about her Textile Shoebox after our Shoebox Project post. She is a textile artist living in the Netherlands and after seeing that no one was repping textiles in their shoeboxes, decided to make her own:

“This flower I didn’t make myself but was a gift of friendship”

“…I hope that a pencil and a needle with lovely thread will always keep me company.”
