Cross stitched box finally finished!

 
 
 
Hi everyone, I have finally finished the cross stitched Peacock Box – at last! 
You can see how to make a box like this if you check out my tutorials blog.

The pattern details can be found in this previous post

 
I have posted lots of pictures below.
 
 
 
 
 
Of course you know I love those Swarovski crystals!
 
 
I used DMC thread to make the cord for a  perfect match. 
 
I was going to put separate compartments in this but decided against the idea – perhaps next time. 
 
 
 
 
 
Last but not least, a bottlecap pincushion trimmed with Mill Hill beads.
 
Happy stitching everyone – until next time!
 
 
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
Lynn B

    How wonderfully, perfectly executed Lynn. I just love the work you do. And the bottlecap pincushion, I have made a handful of those myself and find them extremely addictive. Have a great night now.♥

    Your box looks fabulous, Lynn. Now I want to do the same thing with my Peacock Sampler!

    I adore this box and the colours and fabrics you've used. Perfect finish of the ornaments as well (I think those Swarovski crystals add a nice touch to the box :-).
    Kind greetings,
