My Latest Strawberry Sachet...

Brynwood Needleworks - Strawberries and Roses
I've been working on another commission (when I'm not knitting or sewing dresses for little girls). You know I don't like to just sit around! This one is for someone special who loves collecting strawberries.

I've added new blossoms to this one. Instead of only stitching my usual ruffles, French knots and roses, I've included strawberry blossoms with tiny beaded "strawberries".

The blossoms are dimensional, constructed using bullion petals and French knot centers. I really like the their added effect on this piece.

I finished all the stitching last night, so I'm ready to start assembly. I'll be stuffing this one with a mixture of crushed walnut shells and lavender buds, and then top it with a little organic cotton to hold everything in place while I stitch the woolen leaves to the top.

It will be ready to use as a sachet, pincushion or just a sweet decoration in no time, and then I'll send it on its way to a new home. Of course, I'll show you photos when it's finished. You don't even have to ask, silly!
Handsome, Tag and I are heading over to see Bella today. We're looking forward to seeing how she's doing at Uncle Mike's Boarding School (Tag's description), and snuggling with her a bit, too.

I'm sure Tag will tell you all about it next week, and I'll get back to the studio when we return. I still have a few things to finish this week! Happy Thursday!

Oh wow, those flowers are beautiful. I know it is a commission piece but that is one lucky recipient.
