Crow Sampler Box


This was one of the most fun little patterns to stitch. 
It's a freebie from primitivebettys.  She is so generous 
and so creative.  I am a big fan of her designs.

Well, I stitched this on some 32 ct raw linen using
overdyed floss of Onyx and Palomino.  The box is
 covered with reproduction fabric and I lined the lid with
a vintage love letter and painted the inside a dark brown.

I love making strawberry fobs, so I made one
to match the box.  It's made from some antiqued linen
and has a brown herringbone wool top. 

It's supposed to be a beautiful weekend and I plan to 
do some more stitching outside in the garden. 
Just thinking of it makes me smile.
Wishing all of you a weekend full of smiles.
