Summer Stitching

Over the past few weeks I haven't been around much on the computer but I have been stitching. I pulled out this Drawn Thread piece before summer was completely over and done with. Lots of speciality stitches making up the glut of strawberries and summer flowers. That's now gone on to the pile for framing along with Winter.
