One Last Summer Stitch

Hanging on to the last couple of days of Summer here... so I thought I'd get in one more Summer themed stitch...

~*Strawberry Sampler*~
a design by Betty Dekat of primitivebettys

I stitched this on a scrap of Carlson Craft Light Oatmeal 14 ct Aida that I found while sorting through my stash. Charted DMC threads were used, but I stitched 2 threads of floss over 1 thread of the Aida. Backed with a red wool and stuffed firm with wool snippets, this Summer pinkeep finished up at 4" x 8".

So... if you feel the need to get in one last Summer stitch... and would like a chance to win the pattern for this pinkeep... then please let me know by leaving a comment on this post. If you are a "no reply blogger", please mention your email in the comment as well.

On Monday, September 2nd... I'll announce the winner of this Strawberry Sampler pinkeep pattern... share with you all a picture of my first Autumn stitch of the year... AND... I may just find something else to give away...

Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
