More Strawberry emeries ideas

This time, I am experimenting with Band sampler with the Strawberry emeries. Sweetheart tree and Shepherd's bush are some of my favorite designers when I first started stitching. I love and collect all the Sweetheart tree needleroll patterns. Take a look and see this type of finishing has a lot of possibilities.

Shepherd's Bush Rowenberry mini sampler:

This one I used Gigi Free Alphabet A pattern:

This is the Happy Valentines Day freebie from Pelin Tezer Website, I stitched one over one and finished as a strawberry emery and the one over two as a pinkeep with my ribbon rose pins:

I am going to share some Valentine theme freebies that I came across on the internet: (January 21 posting)
Have a great weekend and thank you so much for visiting my blog.

Gosh Anita, you have been busy.
Your strawberries are the real cream of the crop :>) They are so beautiful and you must have quite a spectacular collection by now.
I never realised how many possibilities stitching a strawberry had until I saw your finishes. Everyone is perfection :>)
Warm wishes Angela

Your strawberry emeries are just so beautiful Anita!! I love Shepherd's Bush patterns too. I used to live about 125 miles from Shepherd's Bush and didn't even know it till I moved to Texas. I went through Ogden, Utah most every weekend one year going to see a friend but never knew it was there. I think they have really pretty things there. Your pinkeep is very pretty too as are your Valentine stitching. Debby :)
