Is it really the last week of February? I know it's a short month, but it usually drags on with dreary, gray days. This year, this month has flown by and brought some sunny skies and an almost complete thaw. All of the gorgeous yellows appearing in everyone's photographs, for Erin's color week, really inspired my making over the break. I did sew up some more sachets! I dug through my scrap bag for yellows and yellow/greens to bring to mind warmth and the green growth that will surely follow. Each one is filled with organic lavender and guaranteed to lift your spirits and bring a spot of happiness to your drawers or closet. Doesn't this look like a big bowl of sunshine?
I've been keeping mine in my purse to infuse it with that heady scent. It came in very handy while standing in a long line the other day. I passed it back and forth with my four year old, and we were the most mellow grocery shoppers ever! I highly recommend making some for yourself... I'll put these ones in my shop for those of you non-sewing lavender lovers.
I've also been working on more coffee sack buckets for another update on Friday. I'll have the round medium and large ones that I haven't had in a while... especially nice for keeping handwork stashed in.
Very kind requests for more garlic and onion sacks have been coming in... a bunch are on the way! I'm working out a more efficient way to print them. Hand cut one-of-a-kind stencils are an act of love I wish I could keep giving, but I know there is an easier way. So... I carved my very first stamp yesterday: my garlic bulb. I'm so excited by the potential carving holds!
I'll share my process and how the fabric printing turns out later this week. I love trying new techniques... makes me feel like a little girl with a new toy: giddy! If you've recently tried something new that got you excited, I'd love to hear about it...
Have a wonderful start to your week !
