The third wish I've stitched for the Make a Wish BB has arrived safely! Susan wished for a strawberry, so I stitched the main bit of Sweetheart Tree's Strawberry Patch needleroll for her.
It's on 32ct Summer Khaki and I used a Mill Hill treasure in the middle instead of the Sweetheart Tree one. I'd do the ribbon a bit differently in the middle if I did it again. I wasn't sure how to fix it and looking at some others since (these seem to be the in thing) I'd do a loop or two on top. Still, I was pleased with how it came out and there's a little charm in there too.
I must say - I loved doing this. I had no idea the Sweetheart Tree needlerolls were so pretty. I've had a few in my stash for several years (they're some of the charts that got missed off the stash list a while ago) but I've never got round to doing them. If I'd known how well they stitched up.... I think doing them on a slightly coloured linen rather than white helps and this is going to get stitched again for myself asap!
P.S. A picture for Rowen and anyone else wanting kitty pictures! Three cosy cats. Trevor moved, so he's a little fuzzy!
