A quick post today.
Sometimes I really feel the need to take a break from a project and make something else. Usually a small, quick to finish project for instant gratification. My 4 swap projects have turned out to be rather time consuming projects that I have never attempted before. Being first time projects means, of course, I am learning a lot of new techniques.
I really would like to show them to you but have to wait for the last two to be finished. Nearly there. I am still waiting for one swap partner to notify me that she has received her package. Hopefully soon!
In the meantime there are these:
Lavender sachets filled with my very own lavender picked fresh off the bush early spring. Drying time took longer than normal because we finally, after years of drought, got some rain! Yay! Our Murray River is starting to fill up again.
A couple more that still need to be finished! Surprisingly I am not finding any suitable fabrics to compliment them in my scrap basket! Something will turn up I am sure.
Free pattern and instructions can be found at Bustle and Sew.
Or you can buy this book. The same pattern is in there.
I also made a little experiment. Hopefully it works the way I want it too. Its a little sachet to throw in the clothes dryer with your washing. It is filled with scented bath crystals. Hopefully they don't dissolve too quickly and ruin my washing. SO I will be putting my hubbies clothes in first to try it out! lol
