Samples 2016: Week 45, Frosty/Berries

Don't you love those ferny, feathery patterns that frost makes on glass? As long as they're outside...

That was my inspiration for this little sample, although it's not obvious now it's made in warm berry colours. I used a built-in embroidery pattern on my Bernina, but stitched single "ferns" in different directions and overlapping. These auto stitches don't appeal at all when they're stitched out in a line as intended, but massed and messed about they're transformed.
