Strawberry Fields for Ever

Here are my first two strawberry pin cushions couldn't you just eat them.
Had another great mail day yesterday my ornies arrived but as they still haven't all reached their destination yet I can't show you. Got some lovely willow branches yesterday and found a great jar to put them in (just trying to get the label off now....why do they use so much glue) to display the Halloween ornies, my winged ones are all on the willow tree.
Also received an order from the Fabric Shack with fabric for Gail's December Garden and some cotton velveteen to make more yummy strawberries just have to get the dye pots out.

They are indeed yummy - I still haven't got mine - I think I ordered them around the same time you did......the credit card payment went thru in mid August and when I queried if the pattern had been shipped they said it should be sent in the next week or two! Must be some backlog! LOL...mind you I haven't felt like stitching anyway - hopefully I will feel better by the time the pattern arrives!!!
