This project was originally taught as a class in 2015. It is such a sweet stitchers tray that Scarlett House just had to release it so the rest of us could have one too. The tray shown was purchased at Hobby Lobby and then modified to suit the purpose. I doubt this exact tray is still available, but you can certainly use some of the wooden trays available. The finished size is approx. 5 1/8" x 3 1/2" when stitched on 40 ct. linen (she used Vintage Strawflower from Lakeside Linen) and stitched using Gentle Arts: Cast Iron Skillet and Country Redwood and Weeks Dye Works, Caper, Oscar and Sage. You will also need Louisiana Hot Sauce Weeks Wool, and Grasshopper Herringbone Wool for the strawberries. Along with the chart you get the templates for the tray base, berry tops, and both berries, as well as finishing instructions for the tray and berries.

Comments: This fern can actually grow and survive on tree branches if humidity is high enough. It's a very low profile fern with small, long triangular shaped leaves and fur covered "feet" (rhizomes) that crawl along. Because of how it grows, it is also a candidate for a low profile ground cover. Or, use it to make a basket fern.
