It's a great exercise for practising using my cutting board and ruler. They work well for measuring and getting everything square.
I'm sewing bags for jewelry again. It's easier than the bags I sewed a year ago because all the bags are one size and there's no dyeing involved. I've been asked to sew them because the lady who usually does it, Liz, is ill. Liz is a quilter and very meticulous; I hope I can keep up her standards! She sewed the bags in the picture, I just finished them off by threading the ribbons. 30 bags a month are needed. I'll carry on until Liz feels better.
I'm also still working on the lavender. I delivered eight on Sunday and made two more yesterday.
Already? Well, the group in the retirement home will be closed in December, so we thought we could make a start. I've just been making a sample for this week's project, a fabric bell.

Last week we made angels out of tongue depressor sticks and ice cream sticks:
The week before, we made Christmas baubles using styrofoam balls:
I tried to review my own lavender pattern yesterday and found that the link on the sidebar didn't work! I've now fixed it. I think the problem is that http// or whatever it is, is already on the layout and then appears again when you copy the link. So a lot of deleting went on the put the link in properly.
