These cute fabric, hand-sewn, berries were just waiting to be picked...
Nancy surprised me when she gifted them to me after I figured out that her blog was an April Fool's post. Thank you Nancy!
I've decided to give them to the crocheted bear my sister Kotya made for me (You can make it!, tell my niece I sent you.).
My bear lives in the gathering basket that I purchased from Alaska's own singer - Hilma Shavings. My basket is a miniature version. According to Hilma's son, the larger version of these baskets were used on Nunivak Island while out gathering food/fish/etc.
Thanks for your friendship Nancy!
