I began this project August 2, 2007 and finished it a few days ago.  It was part of the big project stitchalong.  It's 15 x 15 inches and as you can see fairly covered with stitches.  It was a DMC kit plucked from a clearance bin but it idled in my basket for a long time since I thought it would take forever.  I stopped and started this several times doing many sewing projects in between - though it actually moved along pretty quickly since there were not that many colors.

It's supposed to be a pillow top, but wouldn't go with my furniture at all, I think I will frame it and hang it in the kitchen.

thank you!  I should have posted a penny picture - basically every strawberry seed is the height of a penny, I got my needle callouses back!

Amazing! I don't think I'd ever have the drive to finish something like that!

It would look great in a kitchen.

I absolutely LOVE the colours on the strawberries. They look so dimensional

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
