I diligently worked away on my Strawberry Garden (from Blackbird Designs) all weekend, spending all my stitching time Friday night and a good chunk of Saturday afternoon stitching the vines with lazy daisies. I saw someone comment upon finishing this one that they would be glad to never have to stitch another lazy daisy as long as they lived after doing this one. I can appreciate the sentiment! The random spacing, irregular size and direction of all those little leaves is extremely time consuming to count and stitch, but the effect is wonderful. I think it is why so many people love this pattern! The contrast between the tiny little leaves and the big flowers and berries is very nice.
I rewarded myself for the tedium of those vines by stitching on some of the colorful flowers too, and I finished the border while the kids were swimming (I didn’t need the chart for that!)
Perhaps I could finish this next weekend, and for sure with 2 more weekends. It would be a lovely finish for June I think.
