Holidays are over and so I have no Grandkids in our home. This means, there is time to sew and embroider small things because now I have to do a lot of work in the garden.

Every year I make lavenderbags for friends and family and every year an other design. This years design are birds, but some asked for the dresses from last year too.
My neighbour brought lavender from France so I can do much more then last year.

These are beautiful. I save all my small pieces of lace and ribbon for embroidery designs. I do have the dress design already but would love to know where I can find the bird design. They would be gorgeous on the Christmas tree.

Wonderful pieces. I have wanted to make something like this for a while. I should check for local lavender online. The plants I put in last year did not come back.
