Nuts for You

The design for this nut tin is in the October 2016 issue of Just Cross Stitch. I repurposed an old nut tin and spray painted it to mount the cross stitch onto.

My inspiration: I was with a young friend and we were under an oak tree and found an acorn. She asked me, "Where's the squirrel that goes with that," as if every squirrel is issued an acorn. I was charmed and began to think of a cross stitch pattern where squirrels had their acorns.
