Don't you just love strawberries? They look colorful in ground cover in my yard. Taste rather yummy. Remind me of spring. But best of all I love too cross stitch, punch needle, applique, quilt, felt, and just hang them all around my house.

My punch needle strawberry is a pattern from
Stone and Thread using over dyed floss.
My hanging pocket is adapted from a Carriage House Samplings pattern. I love Kathy's patterns and I'm sorry to see her go....I,m hoping you have lots of sun shine and stitching today, Nancy


  1. Hey Nancy,
    Love all your strawberry stitcheries, but that CHS bag is absolutely awesome. Love your finish on it. What a great piece to have hanging around. I've got bags hanging from my chairs too :)Love that look.
    Happy Stitching and I really enjoy following your blog. So glad you decided to start one up.

  2. I love strawberries too! I usually stitch some up in June just as our little patch is producing its bounty... I love all your strawberries and am curious about the first picture - do you know who's pattern this is?

    Blessings, Patti

  3. I love your strawberry finishes, Nancy! I think about doing a bunch of strawberries for a bowl or here and there and just never get to it. I'm going to have to bookmark this post of yours to inspire me. That hanging bag with Kathy's design is just too neat!

    BTW, I have to say, it is so neat that you describe your pup as your favorite thing in the world. :) I totally, totally get that, as I have a furry best friend who makes every day brighter.

    Have a great week!

  4. Love your sweet collection of strawberries, they are all so fun. I especially like the sampler in the first photo, it's perfect! Thanks for visiting my blog. Happy Mother's Day Nancy!!! Smiles....
