Embroidered Strawberries

Its been three weeks since I blogged,no special reasons..I had enough time, but did not want to sit in front of PC and nothing to show you as well.My bedlinen is about to complete,but I dont have enough thread with me right now. Need to buy some inroder to finish it..poor planning huh? :(

The most I enjoyed these days was being in kitchen trying different things. Though I am not very passionate about cooking, I love experimenting.After some success and flops in cooking, today back to embroidery.
I was thinking of making some Kitchen mats since longtime. Today morning,I just checked some designs in my collection and decided to go on with this simple strawberry design. It was simple and an easy job all the way except the finishing. I dont have a sewing machine and to stitch the edges by hand was really tough.So here goes my latest finish..

The design is traced on two sides of the mat and is embroidered with back stitch and satin stitch.

Was really a quick finish..I wish I had a sewing machine !!!

So thats all for the day..
Till next time
Take care


  1. Thanks for your encouraging comment on my blog :)
    Wow, what pretty colours. Love your pictures

  2. Great job.Sewing by hand takes up lot of time. I've a lot of projects discarded just because of lack of sewing machine.
