Another Week, Another Finish (#2 of 2 for today)

This is Blue Ribbon Designs "Beauty In Simplicity" stitched for the beautiful Oval Shaker Box (which I have!) made by the Canterbury Box Shop.  I stitched this one this past week, finishing it up yesterday evening.  I can't wait to get it "finished" - I'll post a picture of it again when I do.  I love this design and it didn't hurt that it was designed for a shaker box, which I adore as well.  The design is also available is a slightly different version to be framed if anyone is interested.  AND it comes with smalls that you can stitch & put in the box.  I might do those too... they're on my long & ever growing "list".  It's stitched on 32 ct Vintage Examplar from Lakeside using WDW floss (I did change one color - the flowers on the bottom are Red Pear instead of Bluecoat Red). 

I started a new project last night, so stay tuned............  not sure I can get it finished in a week, but I'm going to give it a try. 

Thanks for stopping by & happy stitching!!

You're so fats with the stitching. I love this design. I didn't realize they made designs for shaker boxes, great idea, it will be so cute on the box.

Ugggg, my iPad likes to change my words. Of course I meant to say: You're so fast with the stitching. Sorry about that.

Beauty in Simplicity has turned out more beautiful than the pictures show!
By the way, what size Shaker box does it call for with the 32 ct fabric you used?

Gorgeous finish! I have stitched it twice, one for a model and one for myself. I also did the full set of smalls for each and loved every minute. The smalls stitch up quickly and the finishing instructions are awesome. Go for it!!
