Delightful design. Love the whimsical style.
Hi sopacc, I would suggest ordering this version of the design, http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/3327942 It is the tea towel version on linen cotton canvas...It measures 27" x 18" which is one fat quarter. What you see in the view window is what you would receive. There is a white border around it from the printing process. And if you don't want it framed anymore you can just hem up the edges and have yourself a kitchen towel. So just copy and paste the above address in your browser and just order one fat quarter in the linen cotton canvas. I hope that helps and thank you so much for your interest. Amy
Our Herb Club in Lex., SC is having our 4th Annual Festival "It's All 'bout Herbs"
I would like to take the blown up canvas piece and frame it....is this possible, and what do I order and what size can I expect?
and thank you for the vote, Vickie!

You definitely have to have just a little bit of a twisted sense of humor to appreciate my weird stuff...I'm so happy that you do, Vickie, thank you so much!!!! :o)
Love this!!! We have a bit of a twisted sense of humor in our house, and this cracked us up!
LOVE LOVE LOVE your work. Good luck in the contest, got my vote!!
Thank you so much, Tara, your comment just made me fell so good...thanks again, dear Tara!
Oh Amy, you are one funny lady! Thank you for sharing your humor and light with us all!
All the fun is in the details I guess. Thank you so much, Lori, I'm so glad you like my design! :o)
Jill, I enjoyed your interesting comment, I've heard of fruitarians....you are right, how would that work for root veges, something to think about!! Thank you so much for taking a look, Jill, I really appreciate it!
Great design and very interesting topic! There are some Fruitarians that only eat fruits that have naturally fallen from the tree or bush because picking the fruit, leaf etc does indeed hurt the plant. Not sure how that works with root vegetables though! Amy, your design is fabulous :-)
It's always so fun to study your illustrations, Amy. So many thoughtful details! What a perfect fabric for grocery bags!
Lisa, that is so true...so many thought-provoking comments. Janiece always has a cool perspective on things, she's a thinker, that girl! Thank you so much, Lisa, for your lovely comment and stopping by to take a look! ;o)
Oh, the fun with would have, Denise!!!! We could crack each other up!!! Thanks so much for stopping by to take a look, and your lovely comment! ;o)
Aw, thank you so much, Joanna, you just made my whole Sunday morning that much brighter! I'm going to make my self a kitchen towel ....should be fun :o)
Hahaha! Amy you're too much! Love it because it's so funny and different than what's out there! you have a unique style totally recognizable as Amy G. Yes I would love this in my kitchen :)
OMG! You crack me up! You take the opposite spin and throw a realistic punch at how an herb would actually feel before cooking.... you just make me laugh. Only "Amy G" would have the clever chutzpah to design the quirky scared herbs talking!!Oh how I would just crack up if we had a cup of java right now!!!
Thank you so much, Angela, I'm so glad u like it!
Charmingly funny and SO entertaining to look at, as always! Looks beautiful printed out. It has been fascinating to read everyone's comments on this one - this turned out to be a surprisingly thought - provoking design! I especially liked Whimzwhirled comments about Native American practices, much food for thought there.
Another delightfully illustrated design Amy- love it!
I know beesocks, Herb's about to go to the big garden in the sky....poor little guy. Thanks for taking a look, beesocks! :o)
Thank you so much, Ceri, crazy is definitely a good word for it, LOL!
Love the title and everything about your crazy design Amy! :)
this is so awesome, but poor Herb!!!
Thank you so much, Rebel, I'm glad u stopped by to take a look!
Thank you so much, Isabella and I'm glad I could bring a smile to your face!
Hilariously entertaining as always, Amy. I can always count on you for a giggle. Thanks :-D
Great work Amy. love the bag, too :)
Thank you so very much, Christine and Margreet! I'm so pleased that you both came by to take a look :o)
Amy, I love that bag you uploaded! And those detailed shots...priceless expressions!! :D
"Herb" the herb! This is so horribly funny! :D

The Native American people are wise....very wise! Thank you for your wonderful and thoughtful comment, Janiece! I'm always glad you stopped by. :o)
Thank you so much, Magenta! I'm so glad you like it! :o)
This is so wonderfully clever and humorous Amy! A very attractive and versatile print.
This is a wonderful, fun designs as I am use to seeing from your beautiful brain dear. It does sort of make you feel bad about the plants feeling thing. Many native tribes practised asking the plant or animal they were harvesting for consumption permission to nurish themselves and their tribe with the plant or animal through prayers and chants. I always thought that was a wonderful, kind hearted ritual. They knew plants could feel long before the scientist confirmed it.
So right, Su..the comments are great! You and I must have watched the same program, I remember that...now I look at plants in a whole different light. :o) I'm so glad u got the humor in this one, Su, thank you! :o)
Too funny for words! Love your word play on "Herb" too - and so much fun to read through all the comments, you've brought out the punning best in your commentators - love Alex's "Basil... for the chop" and Sue Ellen's recommended reading on the sentience of plants, was just reading about experiments reporting on plants that respond to the noise of leaf-munching caterpillars by upping the quantities of bad-tasting chemicals in their leafs so looks like there's good science behind it too!
LOL, Lynn, your comment cracks me up!!! thank you so much! :o)
Thank you so much, Dear Sylvie! :o)
As always, that's a great and fun design, Amy !
Pure genius as always, Amy! The illustrations are soooo good and the story they tell…well, all I can say is I'll be speaking in soothing tones to my herbs as I tenderly snip from now on! :-D
Cwren, a mimosa sequel!!!! I like it! LOL...I like the way your mind works! Thanks so much for stopping by to take a look :o)
Yep, Alex, Herb the basil leaf is going to the big garden in the sky!!! Thanks for stopping by to take a look, I really appreciate it!
Thank you so much, Penny! I'm so glad u like it :o)
Great design as always Amy
Always original! Poor Basil looks like he's for the chop!
Can plants think that they feel? You will need a mimosa sequel. You are always amazing at drawing the contest entries and even test-printing them ahead of time. She's got Herb, lol.
Sue Ellen, I just saw a documentary on plants and they did come to the same conclusion...that plants can feel!!! It is a horrifying thought...so here is my humorous take on something that could be disturbing. Thank you Sue Ellen for taking a look and the book reference, I may have to read that....or not? :o(
Tina, you're rockin' my world this morning!! Thank you so much! :o)
Oh Amy I love these illustrations and your description is so funny! Poor Herb! I love it as always!
Oh, dear! I can tell that no one here has read The Secret Life of Plants!! This amazing book by Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird presents scientific evidence for the sentience of plants, and that they really are horrified by casual whacking and the like ... and that they feel empathic horror for other plants and animals that are feeling pain. So Amy has, in the long tradition of jesters and comedians, told the truth, gently couched in humor ... and quite well drawn, too.
The herbs do look horrified don't they? Funny!
Deborah, your comment is cracking me up!!! I'm so glad u like my goofball design!!! Thank you! :o)
Oh, I messed up! I was laughing and composed what I wanted to say in my brain, forgetting that I had to type it in -- I just can't mentally transfer the words to the screen -- ha -- and I hit post!! So, what I wanted to say is this design is so funny, Amy. Well done. And I like that drawing of the basil plant. I can just hear the screams.
Poor little guy....he's toast, Moira!!!! Thanks for taking a look my dear Moira! :o)
So funny! Poor little herbs!
LOL, Rhonda, I just love your comments...they always bring a smile to my face! Thank you.....and I was thinking the same thing about an apron. I wish I wore aprons...I would make myself one. It would be so fun as an apron. :o)
this pattern would make a super fun apron!
Christine, I'm so glad you like this design. One day I was plucking dead leaves from my patio garden and this got me wondering about whether plants have any sensation of leaves being pulled off...then this design came to be. Funny how the mind takes these weird leaps and bounds from one thing to another! Cartoonist, maybe one day when I grow up! Thanks, Christine :o)
Hahhahhah, Amy, this is great! :D You never disappoint with your humorous designs!! I still think you could try to be a cartoonist - you'd do so well! The expressions on the chef's and herbs' faces are priceless! :) Good thing plants are non-sentient or I'd have a problem...
Alas, poor Herb! He was the pick of the bunch! Your awesome designs give us marvelous glimpses into your ability to see humour in the most prosaic of themes, Amy! As well as looking great made into a tote bag, this print would also be wonderful made into chef-style aprons!:-)
