Happiness is cross stitching blog

Cross Stitch covered Peacock Box

Cross Stitch Covered Peacock Box
Here is the Cross Stitch Covered Peacock Box that I started some months ago, it is not finished yet, but this weekend I have managed to start covering the box with the fabric, I have also made a matching scissor fob to go inside this box, I made it this afternoon, I will show the photo in my next post.
Over the next few months I am finally going to be designing my craft room, at the moment it is a bit of a mess as everything is just in boxes, except for this one corner that is neat and tidy.  I have seen a  sewing table that I would like, I am also considering having some white fitted furniture installed, particularly after I have seen the craft room designs on You Tube and getting lots of inspiration.
 I am so excited that I can finally get this room organised, there will be a space that will be for all of my polymer clay equipment and somewhere to put my new polymer clay oven that I got for Christmas. There will also be a place for my felt creations and sewing, and of course plenty of space for my cross stitch stash!
I will also have a place for my Cricut cutting machine which I will be using more of over the next few months, particularly now that I know I can cut felt with it!
Thankyou for all of the lovely comments left on my blog whilst I have been unavailable, they are always appreciated.
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    Good to see you are coming back, love your blog.
    Your craft room is looking lovely, my DH made me a big one from his garage but it is now full and I still don't have enough room,ha.
    Love your box, it's looking very pretty.

    Glad you'll be gaining more stitching/crafting time very soon, Lynn! Lovely colors in your peacock box! And how lucky you are to have your very own crafting room–my things are scattered all over my house in various cupboards and closets… Maybe some day 🙂

    Welcome back! I love the idea of turning the Peacock Sampler into a box. Maybe I should do that with mine?

    Lovely to see you back Lynn sometimes life takes over and other things have to take a back seat. I have had plenty of breaks from my blog to.
    The box is looking so good and I will enjoy seeing all your work.
