Strawberries, to be exact!! I finally got some of them finished and wanted to share them with you. Here is a close up of a set of them I have called BERRY STRINGS.
I just loved making these and used a wonderful pattern by Stacy Nash. I was originally going to make some scissors fobs and still plan to, but decided to create something a bit different, along the order of the Heartstrings I make. I took a large berry and a medium berry and made them into a hanger! Here they are on a sweet little dress.
I looked everywhere for some kind of cord and finally decided to make my own!! I used some brown embroidery floss and after much twisting, I have lots of nice cording for the perfect hangers. I stitched them securely to the top of each berry and then tied a knot for a loop, allowing you to hang it on a hook, nail, small cupboard knob or on a hanger like I have shown. Or you can also display it as I have done, on a piece of old fabric, surrounded by your sewing treasures!
I have added them to my Picture trail HERE and would love for you to stop by for a visit!
If you are a regular visitor to my blog, you have no doubt noticed a few changes too! My very talented husband Jeff asked me a few days ago if I would like to do anything different and when I said "yes", he got busy and gave my blog a whole new look!!! I really love what he has done and so appreciate his talents in the technical area!! I did help him with the styling of my new header, but he did all the rest....picture taking, uploading, downloading, tweaking, adjusting, and changing the background to coordinate everything!! I would be LOST without his help and really admire all of you talented ladies out there who can do ALL of that, PLUS create!! I wish I had all that talent, but am just happy I am married to someone who does!!! I am still not used to it yet, as I had the other background for a long time, but just love the new look and I hope you do too!!!
Thank you again for taking the time to follow, stop by and leave your comments!! I know that if you have a blog and are like me, you appreciate each and every comment and read each one..I'm grateful for the encouragement they bring!!
Wishing you a lovely week, filled with lots of encouragement and perhaps even a bowl filled with some REAL STRAWBERRIES, my friends~~
