I didn't get around to finishing the Strawberry Quilt Block by Valentine's Day as I had hoped (I got distracted crocheting another pussyhat for a friend of mine), but I did get to work on it a good deal today. I also moved my guidelines to center them to help with bead placement.
All the stitching is complete. Now it's time to add the embellishments - the beads and paillettes. I had to take time to dig out a size 28 tapestry needle so I can attach those teeny tiny petite seed beads.
It took a bit of finesse to work around the "off by one thread" problem. It's barely noticeable, thank goodness.
I've also decided on how I want to finish this piece. I'll make a handmade fabric frame to finish this piece like I did Just Nan's Rose Lady.
