By the Numbers

To do the flowers on Berry Bandit, it took 50 bullion stitches.  Two bullions per petal, 5 petals per flower and a total of five flowers.  Now bullions aren't my forte but I got them done.  Now I'm working on the 13 strawberries, each with two leaves.

 I'm more than half done.  I will probably go back and add little gold stitches to each strawberries for the seeds.   Then all that is left are three bees.  My goal for today is to finish stitching Berry Bandit.  I'm sure I can get it done.  If I'm lucky, I'll have time to start the finishing.  I so want to cut this baby out.

It is 50 degrees here today.  I love it!  I walked outside and it was glorious. A lot of the snow is melting.
Wishing you a happy Sunday.
