Today is national watermelon day! It is my absolute favorite fruit and has been ever since I was a little girl… nothing’s changed and I usually have some cut up in the fridge for that refreshing summertime snack and pick me up.
This is a Charlie Haper canvas called “Watermelon Moon” Is this not the cutest? I really do love Charlie Harper pieces and there probably isn’t one that I wouldn’t stitch! How about you?
Do you know that there are over 300 varities of watermelon? Red, pink, white and yellow in a variety of shapes and sizes. It is great as is, in savory salads, cook it on the grill, blend it into margaritas…
Doesn’t that look great?
or make it into ice cream!
How about this beautiful John Johannsen artwork for Melissa Shirley designs? now that is allot of watermelon!
Even Mooch wants to celebrate National Watermelon Day!
Except these days you really don’t need to worry about the seeds. I find the best ones are the personal sized ones that I get in Costco… always sweet!
I see something! I hear something! says AlleyCat.
and until next time…keep on stitching
