I just love how blogging has given me incredible inspiration to do some things that I have long forgotten. I purchased hand dyed wool to make the strawberry basket from Need'l Love's book called Strawberry Threads at least a couple years ago now. I looked at that wool and fondled it for a long time and then I guess things got moved around and put away, which made me loose interest in the project I planned. This week KnotGarden showed us her strawberries from the very same book, well she inspired me to get the stuff out of it's hiding place and get going on it again. I made 3 strawberries yesterday and cut out most of the pieces for the basket. Isn't this exciting.....
Here is the table topper I made with Roman Holiday charm pack while on my retreat. I carefully didn't show the girls at the retreat because I'm undecided on whether it looks good or not. Using all the fabrics in the charm pack without adding a focal fabric makes it look really busy. Besides the fabric line has showed up in stores yet, not in my area anyway. Any comments good or bad is much appreciated. I think maybe it'll be a good table topper.
