a little shop sign

hello, i started doing embroidery again!
ive been thinking about how i can use these cute beads into embroidery piece, but the idea doesnt hit me yet, so while i wait for it, i made a little shop sign.

i had bought many threads for the project ( 60% off on yahoo auction japan), i hate not having materials when idea come up and ready to start work on it, so i tend to stock up materials in my hands. ( i think it comes from my mom, she stock up lots of craft materials, like she can open a shop)

i was looking for a case to store these threads, and i found this!
its a perfect size and cute little shelf!
it was a little pricey ($150) but worth it!

So cute! I love the little squirrel on the box, too.

Very beautiful embroidery! But the stitch looks a bit stranger to me, i really can't figure out how you do it. May I ask for a little tutorial? :)
