Can't stop the veggie dancing

Veggies... dancing!

Yet another homage to romance, to let you know my heart is not shriveled and withered... yet. I don't know, but there's nothing like the delightful spectacle of two veggies dancing to give me that loving feeling. You can keep your romantic comedies, Hollywood! Dancing veggies is where it's at.

On my sheet are 3 large dancing vegetable designs: "Vegetable Polka", "Garden Waltz," and the "Vitamin Ballet." Also three dancing crockery motifs - a spoon, teacup, and wineglass all bear polka-dotted skirts and happy grins, representing "Silver," "China", and "Glass." There are 3 large cross-stitch motifs that also say "Silver," "China", and "Glass." Finally, there's a small singing tomato motif that says "Hot Pots", a posing green bean and 6 tiny dancing veggies that would make an adorable border for a table runner.

Two motifs are cut out but appear unused - the rest of the sheet is intact and unused. I may be missing one of the tiny dancing veggie designs, it's hard to tell.

Any of you stitched these veggies before? Show and tell, please! :)

Well, I've done this one too! I use this one a lot in my kitchen, when my friends come over, they think I'm a little silly, but I love it!

I love this pattern--it was one of the first things I did. Well, it was one of the first things I started when I began embroidering...I set it aside for several months before completing it. :) The finished pic is in my Flickr:

It's so great to see you posting here again. :) :) ♥
