It’s the end of January, which means it’s time to show you what I stitched for the phenology wheel this month. I love walking around my neighborhood and seeing the berries on the dwarf strawberry trees. They are so bright, and the texture is so interesting.
When I first sketched this out, I was worried they looked a little too much like cherries. I knew I needed to convey that texture somehow, so I decided to fill the berries with little French knots.
The flowers were a little harder to get right since I had to embroider them so small. Aren’t they so pretty and dainty though?
I figure the berries are the real star though, so the flowers didn’t need to be too detailed.
