Sweetberry - linen and silk


Can you tell I'm thinking of chocolate here? Lots of pretty reds and pinks on a chocolate background and topped with a cap of brown wool and pretty organdy ribbons – almost good enough to eat! The word "love" is charted in several languages here, but an alphabet is also provided if you prefer to personalize your berry.

White chocolate is the choice for the Linen Berry. I used a large mother-of-pearl button from my stash and organdy ribbon to create a pretty cap for this confection. Even the thread color names remind me of sweet, decadent treats!

SweetBerry is sold as a “partner” chartpak, a format which includes instructions and charts for linen and silk berries.
