Starting over



Something just didn't (still doesn't) feel right.  I didn't know if it was the backstitched border, the Broom Stick Brown, the thread, or the color.  So I grabbed another piece that I believe is 32 count and started over.  But something still isn't right and the first try border and linen are gone so they weren't the problem.  The blue may be too strong for me (it's brighter than the photo).  The linen too light.  Something.  May do another grab 'n go later.
 
 
I had one tiny tiny cap and didn't think I could make a berry small enough.  But I did, all 2" of it.  I know many of you are asking for sources but it took me quite a long time and many hours to find them, and I plan to sell the finished berries.  I am not offering the seller as I did with the other caps, not now, but maybe soon.  I did not order through Etsy.  As I continue to rid the supplies in my sewing room, I may just decide not to bother with them.  You'll be the first to know.
 
August.  Augh.  Can't believe it. 
I am bitch, hear me roar.
 
Have a great start to the final weeks of summer.

Cute little strawberry! I can't believe it's August either... as much as I enjoy autumn... I'm still trying to get in as much summer (minus humidity) as I can! :-)

It's little. It's pink. It's pretty. It's great!

Your work is delightful! I adore it! I will be in line to purchase that is for sure! Since I do not like summer (except for the flowers and green grass, vegetables, fruits and wearing less clothes)(I hate bright light and sweating like I'm in a sauna) I will be glad when August is gone. Ah September, when I do not have to breath bugs and humidity. Ha! I had to rib you since I know you like summer. I imagine if I lived North I would love summer too. When I was a child some 55 years ago we would visit Minnesota for a month every June. I adored summer then. Keep up the beautiful work with your strawberries! They are perfection!

Love that little strawberry! I'm ready for cooler weather, I'll tell you that right now. It's cooler this week so far, but the humidity is sky high, so I don't count that as better. Ugh.

What a cute little strawberry! I am pretty weary of hot, sticky weather... so when it rained for over two hours today... I knew it was finally going to cool down. Yay! The humidity is down too!! Hugs!

I wish I had just a dash of your creativity and eye for color. I don't have one iota so I go strictly by the pattern. Your things just look so beautifully blended. blessings, marlene
