Back to Basics

I thought I'd get out an old Stitch Encyclopaedia and work through, just to refresh memory about stitches that I don't often use, and here is the sampler. It's that basic exercise: one thread, one colour. I'm tempted to do another using the next exercise, which is many threads, many colours just to see what it gives. I didn't draw the sampler first - just did everything freehand, and I'm always amazed at how many different things are out there to re-learn.

I thought I might do something based on this bowl of strawberries we picked from the potager - the first batches are always the best and it is very June for the Bead Journal Project this month.
