Balsam and lavender

The top sachets are filled with balsam from Maine while the two in the basket are filled with lavender.

Two crib quilts in progress: one fall and one spring. Seasons are so much better than gender for categorizing baby items!

It’s a grey day portending rain. I continue to receive birthday presents, like this adorable elephant (how nice is that?). We’re currently watching the Netflix series, “The Frankenstein Chronicles” which I recommend. Ned Stark, from Game of Thrones, plays the compelling lead. I’m guessing that this show is what “The Alienist” hoped it would be.

I hope you’re having a nice weekend!

PS I read the superseding 25 page indictment of Rick Gates this morning before even getting out of bed. I don’t think Manafort will flip — do you? I just learned that the Dem-Memo has been released, so I’ll be reading that before dinner, which leads me to ask, “What will we do when this drama is over?” It is absolutely and completely riveting.

Sachet happiness

Craft Show coming up! Saturday, November 20 at from 9 to 3 at the Dedham Middle School.

One of the best things about sewing for the holidays is the fragrance that fills the living room as I make sachets.  This little pin cushion is filled with lavender buds, which means that for a good long while, pin pricks will release the aromatic oils of the lavender.

I will be selling my usual variety of stuff — felt mice, sachets (I have some really to-die-for toiles this year), small wall quilts, cards, blank books, PILLOWS, dolls and fabric brooches.

Given my new 9 to 5 office schedule, this will be my only sale this year.
