Tea Box Finish!

Finally put the finishing touches on my Tea Room tea box tonight and happy to say it's done! I am absolutely falling head over heels in love with Country Cottage Needleworks, and this pattern was a joy to work with. I just love how the colors all went perfectly together without any substitutions on my end at all. I stitched this pattern on 28ct oatmeal linen before mounting it to my board and adding a gold trim. The box is 9"x9"x4" and has three compartments inside for tea bags and packet.

That looks lovely!

Did you buy the box seperately to the cross stitch? My friend is crazy about tea and would love something like this! I do a bit od cross stitch designing (mostly jewelery but I'd like to try something bigger) and I think something similar would be a perfect start! and give me a deadline to do it for!
