First Strawberry Emery

When I saw this design in the July Issue of The Gift Of Stitching I knew I had to stitch it and try that finishing technique. I started and finished it last night and it is really easy and a lot of fun!

Strawberry Emery
Designed by Anita Diamond, from the July 2008 Issue of TGOS.
Fabric: Unmarked 28ct Gray linen from my stash
Thread: Needle Necessities #153
Black beads

When I saw the design I fell in love with it but I wanted to play around with colors of my own choise. When I was messing around with threads and fabric, this combination just jumped at me and I think it looks pretty good. A little dark and different. And I absolutely love the black ribbon I found yesterday while browsing for just the right ribbons for it.

I think I found a place yesterday that sells a tool simular to the one Becky bought for attaching eyelets. I really want to make floss ring tags so I need some sort of tool for it. I am going to drive up there today and see if they have what I am looking for.
