Here's my latest square, a strawberry. This darn thing drove me to distraction last night! I had the most exciting idea for this square, but it did not pan out. I have these wonderful antique beads left over from (long ago) when I bought a bunch of old beads for my wedding dress. Some of these tiny old beads have a slightly silver sheen, and they were perfect -- PERFECT -- for the seeds on my strawberry. Only one problem: I don't have a needle that is small enough to fit through the bead!! Ugh! I tried 4 different needles, and finally had to give up and resort to French knots. I looks okay, I guess, but it wasn't the grand plan that I had in my head. Well, you know what they say about best laid plans.... :)
On to the next square!
