salad fixings

I have just finished stitching up this picture of yummy salad fixings: There are carrots, radishes, greens, green onions and of course a big ripe tomato. I think this would be so perfect stitched on a fabric grocery bag:I love all these fresh spring colors! I especially like the colors at the bottom of the green onions: I mostly used pearl cotton floss for this stitching: This little group of salad fixings is part of my new embroidery pattern packet - Salad Fixings. Here is what the pattern packet looks like: 12 pages packed full of all things salad! I have really been in a spring mood despite the cold rainy weather we are having. Look what I spotted over the weekend:
Crocuses!

I am more than a little jealous of your crocuses.

Your veggies fit right in with the "Embroidered Fruit and Veggie Quilt Project" that I have started at momwaldsplace.blogspot.com. It is to raise money to help with relief in Japan. It would be wonderful if you would participate, mention it in your blog, or simply anything!

I cannot believe you just did veggies...
