Wild Strawberry Motif
I thought it might be interesting to walk through how I create a motif like this. It is so great to free yourself from copying other people's designs and strike out on your own. Having said that, though, the first thing I did was google "strawberry plant images". Most of what came up were commercial plants which made my mind click that what I was looking for was wild strawberries so back to google I went. I don't copy the photo per se but instead use it to remind me of the characteristics of the plant I want to stitch.
I like how this motif turned out and can't wait to get back to stitching in "Sarma's woods"!
