As promised, today’s vintage Workbasket Embroidery Pattern is the mate to last week’s Happy Flowering Plant. Simply substitute this face for that one and you’ll have a boy plant. 🙂 Just as soon as Dave and I finish painting the sewing room/office and the new bookshelves that he custom built for me, I have a plan for these two patterns!…
