Peggy sent me some sachets filled with lavender that she had grown and dried herself. The perfume from them is gorgeous, in fact you could smell them downstairs as I was in my craft room working on making bags for them this morning. I decided to make them using some of my lace stash. For a weird reason I was having trouble getting myself to use the lace I'd got and which I've had for years! Anyway, rather than leave my stash to someone in my will (when whoever I left it to would probably throw most of it away!) I have at last given myself permission to use what I've got in any way I please, it's a very liberating thought.
While I was writing my last blog entry Graham came to see what I was doing. He remarked that my pictures would look much better if the background wasn't my green cutting mat. Yes, I already knew this but, being more practical then artistic, it just seemed a convenient place for my photo shoots. I will try to be a bit more arty in future but I can't promise anything, I'll probably be too impatient to get the picture taken and go back to my cutting mat background!
I seem to have got quite a bit made lately. That's because I've been using my sewing machine to make things. I love using my sewing machine, I'm on my third machine since 1969. The one I've got now is a Pfaff quilt expression 2046. I still have panic attacks over how much it cost.
