The second half of the strawberry seemed to take me even longer than the first! The stitching shrank away from the edge of the shell, probably because I made the tension too tight. I now have a gap all around the edge, but that is all right, from conception I envisaged something on that edge. The next step is to join the two halves and to line them. I have some instructions on how to do this but can’t quiet get my head around them. I may leave it for a few days to work on my May TIF, while I mull it over.
