Work in progress: Strawberry Thief

I am working on inspiration from the Arts and Crafts Movement for a workshop I am giving in November for the Glos. Guild of Craftsmen. I have been sketching in The Wilson in Cheltenham in preparation. This is my version of the William Morris Strawberry Thief. They sell that card at the Museum!This summer it was the blackbirds that got to my strawberries first, but I decided to  make the thief colourful as Morris did. In this damp weather it's good to have a quiet bit of stitching to get on with.
