Herb patterns

I am so happy to finally be able to tell you that my herb embroidery patterns are now available. I really don't know why I have been so slow with these - they have been ready for a little while!

But anyway, here they are! Five of them: sage, oregano, parsley, chervil and basil. Available in the shop, of course. This week only (until Sunday) you can buy one and get one free, just quote "gimme some free herbs" in note to seller and let me know which free herb you want. :-)

I love them to bits. So far I have embroidered them on tea towels and placemats. I could also see them looking really lovely on a table cloth. But that's a bigger project so that's not going to happen right now... ;-)
I have worked them in either white or some variation of green, but I think it would be pretty to use other colours. Maybe red on pink or white on blue. I guess that's one of the best things about embroidery; it's so versatile. Changing the colour of the size of thread makes for so many different expressions.
