Well, here it is! I have finally finished Strawberry House. I took the slow road on this journey, but I got there in the end.
DESIGNER - Little House Needleworks
PATTERN - Strawberry House chart
FABRIC - 30ct R & R Creek Bed Brown
THREADS - Crescent Colours and DMC (2 over 2)
BUTTONS - Just Another Button Company
STARTED - 12 September 2009
FINISHED - 4 October 2009
I worked on it last night and today to get it finished. I really didn't want to have it sitting there waiting to be finished for much longer. If you had the time, you could complete this one within a week. It's a nice, simple pattern from their All Dolled Up series.
Though I love the colour of the fabric, it was fairly stiff to work with. It's funny how some fabrics are like this and others are quite soft.
I've added the Just Another Button Company buttons to my work in keeping with the 'Dolled Up' theme. I always love if you can add buttons, charms, or embellishments to a design. Really adds appeal and interest.
So onto my next project. I've had a few things run through my mind while working on Strawberry House. None of them I've settled on though. Since it's October and Halloween is at the end of the month, I may sort through some of these patterns to do. I can feel a SB one will pop out and one that's in kit form so I don't have to look for any supplies for it. I wonder what I'll choose...
