I <3 Fruits and Veggies

As a vegan, I love my fruits and veggies! So do my pups. Every time Ian and Harlow smell an orange or banana being peeled they come running. They’re our “helpers” when it comes to meal prep, because they eat all of those errant bits of veggies that end up on the floor.

To celebrate our house’s love of fruits and veggies, I started working on this dish towel last summer and I finally picked it up again in order to finish it this week. The adorable pattern is “I Luv Veggies” from Sublime Stitching and it was my first foray into embroidery beyond cross-stitch. You can tell by the messy apple center.

That messiness worked well for the orange, though, because it gave it that textured feel that oranges have:

The tomato is my first attempt at satin stitch – clearly I need some practice:

And the garlic…well I’m still trying to figure out how I’m going fill in the garlic:

Can’t wait ’til I’m done with it. So many half finished projects that need to be tackled!
