Thanks to all those who came out to the UMC World Bazaar and Benefit in Niceville on Saturday and to the organizers. I was swamped for a little while there. Turned out to be a great show.

New Items: tatted linen sachets

Coming soon to my on-line shops:

I'm working on these linen sachets to have ready for Christmas. They are filled with either very aromatic lavender or rose petals. I didn't photograph the backs this time, but they have cotton mesh inserts that contain the botanicals that can be removed in order to refresh them with drops of essential oils to keep them forever and so that the sachets can be washed without washing the botanicals.

I am also making these in white and natural linen (these are in ivory linen though the ivory didn't photograph well in artificial light this time) and in different colors of tatting. This is just the first batch that has been completed.
