Cross stitched Peacock Box accessories and a free pattern

Hi everyone, as you can see I have made these small cross stitched accessories for the Peacock Box.
I made a strawberry with felt leaves and I added swarovski crystals and made a little thread holder to match. I thought I would try something a little different, hence the crystals with the checked fabric, not sure if it works but I like to try something new just to test my creative skills!
The cord on is made from DMC thread, colour 160. 
The cross stitch design is available as a freebie below. 
Until next time, happy stitching!

Cross Stitch covered Peacock Box

Cross Stitch Covered Peacock Box
Hi everyone, apologies for the long delay since my last post, as most of you know I have been working full time, therefore my stitching time has been non existent.
The good news is, my contract ends at the end of September and  I will be getting back to my stitching, I am so looking forward to picking up my needle and threads again! 
I would say it will be the middle of October before I have anything substantial to show you, but be assured I will be back with a vengeance!

For now I can show you 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.
The pattern is available to purchase below for $5.

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 also may just get around to finishing my red dress that I blogged about here  .

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.

Don't forget, I may get chance to blog over the next month but it may get to October when I have some time to stitch.

Until then, happy stitching!
