Herb-themed Ornaments

Thought I'd share an ongoing current project with you. These are supposed to be "plant pokes," staked into the ground to mark your herbs. I'm not willing to stick anything handmade into dirt, so I hang these as ornaments in my country kitchen, with several on my pot rack. They're easy, quick, and add a personal touch to my home environment. They're also teaching me to identify my kitchen garden herbs. Stitched on plastic canvas, I finish the back with felt and a "handmade by" tag. I'll let you know when I've finished the basil one!

I like small projects that give me a sense of immediate gratification. What's your favorite stitching project? Let me know in a comment on the blog.

  1. I used to do needlepoint, then I moved to counted cross stitch. Then I wanted to make an afghan so I had a friend teach me to crochet. Since then I have learned to knit, quilt, and tried to tat. But I am a crocheter through and through, so that is what I tend toward.
