floral embroidered box

This is a box that I made and now have sold, it is one of my favourites as I have used rayon thread which gives the flowers a nice shine to them. The lid I have made scented by placing a lavender bag inside the wadding.

 The edging is made by tatted rings and beads

The stitches used are cast on stitch for the roses,bullion stitch for the large flowers, fern stitch for the leaves and french knots made with ribbon for the central flowers.
