First Harvest of Basil

It’s the end of spring!

I nibbled the little green umbrellas from the basil plants, so that they’ll grow bigger horizontally.

I love fresh basil leaves in a simple tomato omelette.


Lip Print Stitch-by-Stitch

The stitched lip print is one of my favorite original embroidery designs. This one I did a couple of days ago is not perfectly smooth, but the flame is there, I suppose. 😉
Love the strong 3-D effect created by the 6-strand floss. I think that fits perfectly well with the motif. It made everyone want to touch it with their fingers at the craft fair… and I had to shout to stop them. 😀
