Strawberries . . . .

After my whitework course at the Royal School of Needlework I was thinking about another pulled thread project to do and came up with strawberries.  

I found the box at Williams Sonoma I was ready to make strawberries to fill it.  I used red 32 count linen, red pearl cotton and green pearl cotton.

 I used a different pulled thread pattern for each strawberry.
 I used red buttonhole thread to sew each one together and filled them with ground walnut shells.
I think they look great together in the box, but one would make a nice scissor fob or a pin cushion.  

The Mercer Island Visual Arts "Treasures in Miniature" show is coming in April, my strawberries will be there.  

Hope no one tries to eat them.
