stitching some salad fixings

I stitched up some of the vegetables from the Salad Fixings embroidery pattern packet: I love the way they turned out! I stitched a tomato:
a purple onion:
and a little radish:I am really pleased with the look of the running stitch around each one, sort of like a picture frame:
I also wanted to share - on a non-salad or even embroidery note - some beautiful garden pictures! These gorgeous blossoms are on my apple tree: and these blossoms are on the ornamental cherry - so dreamy!

I am so happy to have found your blog! I am going to be able to add so much "flavor" to my quilting now! Berit would love my two nutjob Border Terriers. They think they are German Shepherds!
