Getting back to 1 Year of Stitches

I got back to the 1 year of Stitches last week after a month long break.
I decided to add a strawberry to the 12 inch circle.
In the process I've learnt two new stitches. The first one is Strawberry stitch. It's a composite stitch and I followed this tutorial on YouTube and the results are terrific I think.
The second stitch I learnt was Hungarian Braided Chain Stitch. I used it to embroider the stem of the strawberry.
It's season time here in the Nilgiris. Lovely cool weather with the occasional thunderstorms and the rest of the country is reeling under a heatwave. Our B n B has seen a steady stream of guests since April. People trying to escape the heat for a couple of days. I've been busy with laundry and cooking.
Ben the St.Bernard we adopted, two months back has settled in and made friends with Blackie our indie. He still has to make friends with Pepper the cat.
Hope you have a good weekend.
