It's embarrassing to admit just how long it took me to finish this one...
(especially since I just had to have it a few years ago and a friend sent it to me right away)...
so I won't! But there she is, Sarah Seifer, a design by The Goode Huswife. Stitched on 35 count Daily Grind linen with DMC threads :-)
Thanks for all of the advice on the rosemary! And thanks too, to those who weren't too shy to step up and confess their own plant killing skills! Whew! Some people have a gift for growing things...my mother is one of them, she can grow anything! When I was growing up, she had huge greenhouses, sold plants to the public....whole rooms full of African violets, you name it, she could grow it. Still can. But that gene did not get passed along to me!
Anyway, I transferred the rosemary to a planter pot thing for now, cause we can't figure out where in the yard it might be the happiest. Hopefully it will live and grow and be big enough to take some sprigs from for my potatoes! OH! The potato recipe I was referring to is on the PW food blog, you can't imagine how delicious these are and so simple to make! Try them!
Just kidding, I did not buy a basil plant, lol! Just got this fresh bunch from Central Market for a recipe. Fresh herbs are so awesome, I really wish we had a whole yard full of them. Dream on, right? ;-)
