Here is a Teresa Wentzler freebie found on her site here. It is called Peacock Tapestry Ornament and is 38 h by 38w stitched on 28 count tea dyed linen over 2. I crafted it into this needle box made out of a cardboard avon type box. This is my first post on this blog and I'm looking forward to adding more posts in the future. My name is Tracy and you can visit my blog, The Passion of my Needle, here.
