To mark this day, I chose to make a symbolic little something to hold onto. There was no plan, just two jars of dried lemon verbena that a good friend dropped off yesterday. She thought they might make nice sachets, instead of my usual lavender. Oh my goodness, was she right!! The scent is light, citrusy and uplifting. It's truly potent, and so stuffing it into an egg-shaped bit of linen seemed just right. It practically made itself. The final little stitches were filled with such a heady aroma of joy, I couldn't help but laugh out loud. If light had a scent, it would be lemon verbena, I'm sure!
my favorite joyful women and given to me last spring. Thank you sweet Denny!
