Blackbird Designs Country Garden

I am back from my holiday and at last I have got around to adding my latest completed stitching. I made the box about a month before I went on holiday but needed to add the cord and tassels, I managed to do this a week or so ago, since then I have been wanting to photograph it to put on my blog but DH has been home and I never seemed to be able to get them taken until today.

Design is stitched 1 over 2 on 36ct Edinburgh linen in antique white using WDW and GA threads as listed on the chart.
I followed a tutorial for the box from Judy Odell's book The Flatfold and friends.
I chose Blackbird designs Harvest Home for the fabric as the colours matched so well with the colour of the threads

The box is all hand sewn and padded and is really lovely to feel.

I made the corded and tasseled scissor fob and the bead just added that extra touch. It looked such a good match and was one I had already in my bead collection.

I am very pleased with how it turned out.
Hope you like it.
