Ahhh...life has settled down somewhat with the arrival of our summer holidays (ours start a little earlier than everywhere else). We've been so lucky with the weather and I've been 'lucky' in that I haven't been too busy on the sewing machine, allowing me to enjoy the sunshine!
With a slower pace of life I have found that my hand sewing mojo has returned also and for a few evenings I sewed up some little ideas that had been floating around my head for some time.
With the inspiration of the beautiful blooming garden, I just had to sew some embroidered flowers, lavender being one of my all time favourites.
Also making the most of the fact I can now do french knots!!
I added a little hand stamping, ribbon, and real dried lavender, and came up with a sweet lavender hanging sachet -
I was so pleased with this, and fuelled with more inspiration, I continued embroidering and making until I had a few more for my collection!
