Taste Summer

Hi friends! I finished up 'Taste Summer' by Shepherd's Bush last week. I waited to  post about it til this Blogger Bug was over and done with.
I bought this sweet kit at my LNS, when I still had a LNS over a year ago. The picture on the pattern front shows this finished in a white weathered box. I chose to simply make it a pincushion. So of course I had to make a few red, white and blue counting pins to put in it. :) I love the fabric I had on hand for the backing.
I stitched it with the given threads on the given 32ct Light Sand Linen, two over two. There are hardly any threads left, and I used the linen up, but I would like to offer this pattern to one of you. You can have the threads too. They won't get the whole pattern stitched, but at least you can use some, and use the others to match colors if you like.
 So if you are a follower of mine, and you would like this pattern, tell me so in a comment on this post. This will be open to anyone, anywhere, as the pattern is small enough to send in an envelope, thus keeping postal costs down. =) I will draw a name in one week, next Wednesday, July 2nd.

I am stitching up a gift for my Aunt and Uncle for their 40th Wedding Anniversary on Sunday. Almost done now. Then to frame it. It will get done.

Glad you stopped by today. Have a wonderful week my friends.

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

So pleased you waited to post your beautiful stitch until Blogger was fixed as I may of missed it. It is stunning,.... strawberries are such a summery thing... I love eating them! I did just that too, in honor of the Tennis at Wimbledon her in England! mmmm Its a Shepherds Bush design you say... it is very pretty. And yes your choice of fabric goes very well indeed with it. And you turned it into a rather cute pin cushion with your lovely counting pins you make.
Hope Mabel and Henry are well.. sending smiles to you all :) xx

Very cute Vickie. When I was a kid after school ended in June, the children used to go to the strawberry fields and pick. Then when that season was done it was off to the bean fields until school started up again.
