Freebie, Lavender and a new publication.

I love lavender and I was really thrilled when I knocked on the door of a neighbour….(well around the corner and up the street a bit neighbour) anyway …..I knocked on her door to ask her if I could cut some of her lavender as the bushes in her front garden had masses of flowers on them. She said..Of course!

I picked quite a few and brought them all home and bundled them and hung them to dry. I hope to make several sachets with the dried lavender in them.

This issue of Patchwork & Stitching Issue Vol 11 No 6 on the front cover is my design. *grin* There it is behind the word ‘Learn’….

It’s a cute little hold-all and it was such fun to make as there are several little Christmas themed stitcheries going all the way around the bag.
I will have the pattern available for purchase very soon as not everyone can get the magazine in your country.
Hugs to all…………Vicki

You are so lucky to have been able to pick all that lavender!! I have several plants, but they are elderly and need to be replaced. The flower heads get smaller and smaller each year. The table runner is awfully cute and I look forward to downloading the pattern for future use. Thank you so much! Congratulation on having one of your sweet patterns published! ~kaholly

Can almost smell that lovely lavendar - such a sweet, old fashioned aroma. You come up with such pretty projects, Vicki! It is so cool that your patterns are published - they certainly are some of the best out there! Carol
