More sachets and rain and rain....

GOOD EVENING FRIENDS, I BEEN HOME FOOLING AROUND SINCE IT'S BEEN RAINING CAN'T GO OUT IN THE GARDEN OR ANYTHING ELSE PRETTY MUCH...LAST NITE I STAYED UP AND MADE UP ANOTHER SACHET AND THIS MORNING I MADE ANOTHER..RIGHT NOW I'M JUST FOOLING AROUND SEEING WHAT I CAN DO...THEY ARE VERY HOMEMADE AND HAND SEWN..AND I LIKE THAT IDEA, KIND OF OLD FASHIONED...NO MACHINE AT ALL...
WOULD YOU CARE FOR A CUP OF HOT TEA...I SO ENJOY MY TEA, I LOVE MY NEW TEA POT. I FOUND IT AT THE CHINESE STORE. I SHOULD GO BACK AND SEE WHAT NEW ITEMS THEY HAVE.
I HAD THIS OLE FLANNEL PILLOW CASE AND I HAVEN'T USED IT SO I THOUGHT I'D MAKE A SACHET WITH SOME OF IT...


IT'S A PRETTY BLUE, I WANT TO SAY A CORN FLOWER BLUE..BUT I DON'T THINK THAT'S WHAT IT IS BUT JUST THE SAME I LOVE THE COLOR AND THE WHITE FLOWERS. VEE SAID IT FELT SO SOFT AND CUFFY...WHEN THE SACHET WAS ALL FINISHED...IT CAME OUT QUITE LOVELY I THOUGHT...ALL SEWN BY HAND WHICH I LOVE...I THINK IT'S MORE INTERESTING.

I COULDN'T GET A VERY GOOD PICTURE OF IT ALL DONE...THE LITE WAS TERRIBLE TODAY IT'S DARK AND COLD...
THEN I HAD ANOTHER IDEA, SO I QUICKLY DREW A NOT SO WONDERFUL FLOWERS AND BUTTERFLY..NOT PERFECT. . .




CUT IT OUT AND STARTED SEWING IT UP..THEN I ADDED DRIED ROSES INSTEAD OF THE LAVENDER...


I THOUGHT TO ME THAT IT NEEDED SOMETHING A LITTLE BIT MORE SO I THEN DECIDED TO PUT A EDGING ON IT...

AND IT GAVE IT A MUCH BETTER LOOK...SO I THOUGHT IT DID...I ENJOYED MAKING THEM. IT KEPT MY MIND BUSY ... GOING TO MAKE SOME MORE MOM WANTS A FEW FOR HERE DRAWERS..BUT SOMETHING IN PINK OR ROSES..I HAVE SO MUCH LINENS ETC...NOT A PROBLEM...
SO HERE IS ALL THREE THAT I HAVE MADE SO FAR...I'M HAVING FUN WITH IT...A NEW EXPERIENCE FOR ME..NEVER MADE THEM BEFORE JUST BOUGHT THEM...I LIKE IT.
HOPE YOUR DAYS HAVE BEEN GOOD SO FAR...WITH LOVE JANICE
