Yay yay yay! Strawberry garden took only 3 more stitching sessions to finish up! I just love it!
Goodness it was a lot of lazy daisies. But towards the end I was a lot less particular about perfect placement. They may be off by a thread here and there but I think for this design it doesn’t matter a bit. I didn’t move the bird or shorten his legs, I made a couple other counting errors but worked around them too, and Jo is correct. This design is so quirky you can’t tell at all.
The buttonhole wheels were new to me. I wasn’t sure how to make them but they came out fine.
I wish I could frame this right away but between the cost of frames and good frames I like being out of stock everywhere I will probably have to wait. I heard of people making their own frames from thrift store finds. I’d love to do that but I hate shopping thrift stores. Maybe I will take a peek next time I’m at a shopping center with a thrift store and see if I get lucky.
