More strawberries and some gifts.....

Another strawberry, this one is full of emery sand to keep my needles sharp. It is also a scissor fob....
I am loving this pattern from Blackbird Designs....... don't look too close, I am not the world's best cross stitcher. At least I try! The shades of pink are so pretty, that could be why I am making pink strawberries lately!! I think it needs to be tea dyed a bit more....looks almost white in the photo.


My new, old bread tin from my SIL.... isn't it lovely? She spots the best deals and know where to find good things!!! Thanks Donna! It even holds to loaves of bread..... I love it!
Look what came in the post! My pin doll swaps from Cindy over at Thimbleprims Studio!!!
Thank you Cindy, they are so sweet!
