Herb Stitchery - A Variation on the Theme

These herbal stitchery pieces grace the tea room walls. My mother was one who believed you should never have idle hands. She always had a busy work project ready so she could grab and go, doing embroidery while riding in a car or attending a long meeting. Each of these herbal stitchery designs were products we sold in the shop years ago. My mother stitched four of each design, and on several Christmas mornings, presented each of her daughters with the completed framed work of art, signed on the back, 'every stitch with love'.
This lovely Fragrant Herb Garden stitchery was done in 1986, and on the reverse she noted that Scents make Sense! and referring to the herbs, "for use and for delight".

I especially enjoy the herb garden sampler. I wish the pattern or kit were still available.
