WIPW - A Bit of Pink

It's time for Work In Progress Wednesday; how quickly the Wednesdays pop up!
I've only made a little progress since last week.

Fruity Cushion
I've worked the spiky triangles at the top and bottom of the fruit, and also started on a bit of pink.

..............

Tomorrow, July 30th, is World Embroidery Day. Don't forget to thread your needle and enjoy a few stitches. If you have the chance, go public and stitch in the park, at the bus stop, in the café or somewhere else where you will be seen and given the opportunity to promote embroidery.
As for myself, I'll be housebound and the only person who will see me embroider has weak eyesight and a short memory, so no chance for me to spread the joy of stitching to strangers. I will blog on my work, though!

I will celebrate the Embroidery Day in front of our house in the Vosges - there might come a few passers-by - but I doubt - the weather is not just that nice. I love your fruity stitches.

I don't know before reading your post that today was the Embroidery Day, I'll embroider tonight because now my grandchildren are with me and I do not have time to embroider.
