There aren’t very many people who don’t delight in the all-too-short strawberry season that arrives each Spring. For some, that season is already coming to an end, but here, green berries are just starting to form on our bushes, and my mouth is watering at the thought of that anticipated first bite.
Included in this pattern packet you will find charts for 2 samplers and 1 pinbook, as well as instructions for completing the pinbook. It will arrive in a plastic zip-close envelope for safe keeping.
I will also make available to anyone purchasing this pattern a free downloadable .pdf tutorial for finishing the pinbook; in the tutorial there are step-by-step instructions with color photographs.
The lovely frames on the model samplers were made by Dona, the owner/operator of www.homecraftframing.etsy.com These frames are made one at a time at her home by herself and her husband. They are not available for wholesale purchase, but are well worth the effort of placing a custom order and doing the framing yourself (or taking to your favorite framer to do the work for you). Stop in at her etsy shop to see her ready-made frames, or to place a custom order, and tell her I sent you!
