WIPW - Is Shopping Progress?

Work In Progress Wednesday took me on a shopping trip.

Trinity Green
was in need of more thread so before I could make any quilting progress I had to buy some reels of

green Dual Duty.

For
World Embroidery Day
I completed the stump work carrot and two pods of peas.

Then I stitched the embroidery to a card and inserted in a frame, gift wrapped it, wrapped it in brown paper, took it to the postoffice and sent it flying across the Globe.

    1. Ha, ha!
      The person I made the card for grows those vegetables in his garden so they were appropriate.
      Hope you are well, Diane.

    1. Yes, it was just the perfect size for a one-day project (although I did the mounting, framing, packing and posting on another day).

    1. The 'gardener' whose birthday I am celebrating have these in his kitchen garden. I made a card for him last year, too, and he had it framed so I thought I would do the framing for him this time.

    1. Yes, aren't they perfect for having at hand! Stews, salads, nibbles, roasts, tempura, stir fries....

  6. Shopping definitely counts as progress, window shopping especially as it's often a great springboard for ideas. Your stump work is lovely, if only all home sown vegetables didn't need washing before use.

    1. Too many people think that window shopping is a waste of time. But it is as you say a great source for inspiration and it doesn't cost you a penny, either.
      No washing for those carrots!

    1. The frame is long and narrow so a carrot would fit, I thought!
