I have stitched a few fruit and vegetable pieces back in the day - but I don't have photographs of the crewel work that hung in my kitchen in California (if I remember rightly, one was of carrots and the other eggplant...). I do have a photo of one needlepoint, however, and one cross-stitched piece that predate 2001:

and two harvest samplers that feature fruit and veg, both of which won prizes at the local county fair - 2010:

and 2011:

I can't really say any of these are my "favorites" --- I do know that the latter was a long-term UFO that I actually hated stitching, especially those side panels with all the shading, but hey, blue-ribbons tend to take away that negativity a little! Laughing
