Sweet Strawberries!!!

I've got strawberry fever and ever since I saw my little strawberries starting to tinge red in my garden today I've had strawberries on my brain! So I decided to tat up this little strawberry as a gift for an online friend! It is little, probably only about 2 inches tall, I used some Rubi Perle Cotton thread for it. You can get the pattern Here. There is even 3 variations for this pattern too! I've wanted to tat it up for a long time but never got to it. There is just something so cheery about seeing a strawberry! I think I enjoy seeing them as much as a rose blooming! I'm planning on one day doing a Strawberry Themed CQ block and I've been collecting ideas for it for quite some time...hmm maybe it will get done sooner than later? LOL
