And A Ripe Strawberry... Plus a little trifle.

 It's fabulous Friday! Are you ready for an awesome weekend? I sure hope so. Do you have any special plans or projects you are going to be working on?  Nothing really special here, but I will continue  working on my Stitch Maynia projects, and I have a bit of binding to do. 

I have been in scrap heaven - digging down deep into the scrap bins.  This time pulling out reds. No problem with this challenge. 

              Red is a rose, 

             Red is a cherry 

            Red is an apple 

         And a ripe strawberry

Oh, how I love the color red! Of course I love all colors , but red holds a special place in my heart. 

             

So with those red scraps, strips were cut and and pieced willy nilly . 

             

What are those strips going to be?   Strawberries. Yep another strawberry quilt. 

            

Berries are already in the process of being pieced and appliqued. 

             

 This will be a full size quilt. 

I also have a finish.  

              


I finished my Fresh Berries Redwork quilt. 

            

Click here to go to the post with the doodles.  It is a small one but is berry cute. 

Of course, since I  finished  one embroidery project,  that does mean I need to pick up another one. Hmmm, what should it be?🤔 My mind is whirling with ideas. Maybe patriotic - maybe bees. It will come to me in time. 

I am going to leave you with a little cross stitch trifle. This is an itty bitty stitch measuring only 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" . It is called "May Basket". 

I stitched mine into a little fob/ ornament. but I call it a cookie because it looks like a little sugar cookie.  No calories though. 

Click here for the pdf.


I am baking up quite a collection of little cookies. 


They look so precious on this little tray.   If you missed any, click on the names to go to the post of the previous trifles. They are  Love Trifle ,   St. Patty's Day Trifle ,   Sheep Trifle ,   Bunny Trifle ,     Strawberry  Picker  , and    Nesting Bluebird  .  


I am so grateful that you stopped in for a visit. Your visits are always a delight to my soul and heart. Have a super fun weekend, my dear stitchy and quitlty friends. And as always...

        Happy stitching and  quilting, ya'll,

         Melisa
