Autumn Song - Blackbird Designs

I was part of Becky’s private Autumn Exchange and I just read the email Anne sent me…She told me the package arrived safe and she loves the needle book and thread holder tag I’ve made for her.

Autumn Song by Blackbird Designs caught my eye awhile ago… and this exchange was a great opportunity for me to stitch it. I decided to change the colors and I used Nina’s Threads and TGA.

Thank you so much ladies for your lovely comments!
Cole, there are few tutorials that I followed for the box. You can find them here http://lolotte.bouclee.over-blog.com/ Tutorials are on the right side "Pages". They are in French but the pictures are very good and steps easy to follow.

It's such a shame people can't see this one in real life - the stitching and finishing are exquisite ... and as I said in my email your finishing skills leave mine for dead!! I truly do love, love, love it :D And I can't wait to show my Mum - I just popped online hoping that you would have photos published so I could show my Mum :D
