Embroidered Tangerines

In case anyone has run out of projects I thought I would share a link to a blog I like to read.  This latest post is on embroidered tangerines, the peels that is.  Take a look at more Here.
I think they are pretty cool!

I haven't looked at the link yet but wanted to comment first. It would also be interesting to see the effect on the embroidery as the fruit decomposed.

Since it is just the rind, I think it may just dry out and shrivel a bit.

In her write-up she says you can put them around the house for scents.

I think it's interesting, but a lot of embroidery work for something that you eventually have to throw out. I imagine the designs might become distorted with the shrinkage....I prefer clove-studded citrus for the aroma, myself. But, that's just me. I think if I were to be putting in time embroidering, I'd want to create something useful as well as decorative that I could enjoy for a long time. Nice tidbits about the history, though, and the knowledge that the orange aroma lifts one spirits being scientific fact is also cool.

The question I am asking myself about all possible projects is: Is it worthy? It's amazing how many ideas are biting the dust before they barely find a spot in my brain. *wink*
