rowanberries on a thread
Me and wee E took a stroll last night in a quest to find rowanberries. This year's harvest seem to have been poor, my mother had no berries in her trees, or then I am just a late harvester. Yesterday however I found enough to make me 10 threads of berries for coming decorating projects (chandelier, advent candle stick, christmas tree, window or door decorations...).
I started last night and today I finished my work with a needle and grizzly sewing thread.
I am not sure I did the work in right order though. Should I have dried the berries before I slipped them onto the thread (like they did here) or will the result be as good my way, first berries onto thread and then hang to dry? Have you done this before?
Pretty they are!
