some late night sewing

at 1:00 in the morning one isn’t too concerned with blogging. but i was sad to send my bag off to the mailman without so much as a parting shot. so i threw it on the stove (the only clean spot) and took it’s picture.

i was mostly excited about how it turned out because it was just an old shirt of my mother’s. i used some of the scrappy bits to make a matching sachet with my favorite mix; lavender, spearmint, chamomille, rose buds and a dash of spearmint, essential oil (it’s made of sterner stuff to hold the flavor).

i think it’s fun to have matching sachets for your purse. that way when you reach for your keys, rushing out the door, you get a whiff of something good. purses are pretty much disasters otherwise (a bottomless pit, presumably containing keys, but it’s hard to say for sure. they should at least smell good while you waste all that time looking.)

anyways, now it’s off to another hard day of shopping. i also have to try my hand at a children’s apron for a christmas party tonight. so i’ll show you how that goes tomorrow.

(sigh. i can’t wait to go to my mother-in-law’s for christmas. so i can veg out on the couch all day, crochet and watch clint eastwood while she makes me food. mmm.)
