A Small finish

Back in May I started a small strawberry embroidery I had designed, it sat in my sewing room all summer until I got it out again this afternoon.
I decided that I did not like the strawberry leaves nor the white flower, so I unpicked the leaves this afternoon and restitched them.
I like this much better now, and rather than redo the white flower, I decided to turn the strawberry into a nifty little needle-case.
I followed the excellent tutorial from nanaCompany, you can find it HERE
I am really happy with it, and it's a finish!!
