Strawberry Garden update

Well, it was Monday again and time for my SAL with Nicki. I had a really busy day and, unfortunately, did not have as much time for it as I have had in the past weeks. I only got the large red flower and a bit of the border and letters done. I think I'll need two more weeks to finish this...

I also wanted to show you what else I did during the weekend. This tray cloth was also inspired by Maire Claire Idées. I found the floral fabric from a thrift shop a while back. I cut a piece to fit the tray and then painted (with fabric paint) the butterflies on it. And then I decorated them with backstitching, straight stitches and French knots. Nice to have a bit of something to remind oneself of summer in the midst of all this rain and darkness.

Strawberry Garden looks great. I'll need two more weeks too so we'll finish at the same time - how wonderful!
