Can't See the Forest Can't See the Forest

Can't See the Forest is a small stitcher's box that was inspired by the woods on and around my Virginia farm. Every day, when looking out onto our property, we see all kinds of wildlife amongst a variety of trees--deer, red foxes, raccoons, hares, hawks, skunks, groundhogs, owls and numerous other birds. The box was also inspired by an antique box I saw online that had a pullout drawer and pincushion on top.

The box is approximately 2-1/2 x 2-1/2 x 3-1/2 inches with a pullout drawer on one end and a pincushion on top. Three sides of the box will feature a variety of trees with animals tucked in around them, all inspired by antique samplers. The pincushion features a fawn surrounded by trees which grow up on each side and arch over her.

The box is worked on 32-count Belfast linen with DMC pearl cotton and Gloriana over-dyed silk flosses. The box and drawer are lined in a complimentary silk Dupioni and the drawer pull is a faceted crystal bead.

The design includes a scissor fob to tuck into the drawer along with some of your other small stitching treasures.
