I had planned to hand embroider this cute stitchery today, but she was so much fun that I finished her during the week! She is called "Little Lemon Slice", but since I love limes, I made her into a little "Lime Slice". Here she is showing off some of my wonderful crop of basil...lots of yummy pesto coming up later this month!
The pattern for this little cutie is from the Feeling Stitchy blog...a wonderful place to visit, full of tips, inspiration, and free patterns to stitch. To download this (and many other patterns) go to the Stitchalong page...this is the August design from last year.
Here she is hanging on the "rabbit fence" around my garden, made for me for a mother's day gift from my daughter and her boyfriend. I am so happy to have some huge beets, lots of tomatoes, onions, peppers (green and yellow), zucchini and cucumbers. The beans and peas are not great this year due to so much rain. But this year, we'll be eating the produce from my garden instead of supplying the neighbourhood rabbits!!!
Today, I'll be trimming the hedge, doing some weeding in the garden and looking for another stitching project to keep my hands busy. Do you have any suggestions?!?
What are you hand stitching today?
Post a link up to your blog and share your project with us.
We love to see what other stitchers are making!
