Serving Strawberries.....

I have several technique classes planned for our Fall selection of classes at Sew To Speak.  This warm summer morning I was inspired by the thought of strawberries....


I will be teaching a freezer paper piecing class...this little pincushion {5.5 X 3.5} is paper pieced.


I used Essex linen and added a few little french knots on the stem to give texture and a little piping around...

But I didn't want to stop at just strawberries....so I fixed some carrots too....


How about a carrot placemat?


YUM!!!
Happy Sunday!
