What was I thinking???

I had a request for one lavender sachet....and one needle book, right?
Well, I must have gone nuts!
It's taken me three posts to get all of these babies this far!!!!

I guess I thought, if you're going to make one...why not make eight or ten :)
That takes a whole lot longer though!!

I just kept finding linens that would be perfect for one or the other ~
but still, nothing's listed in my Etsy shop.
Oh well, maybe today!

Here's a few more in-progress shots ~
(you're gonna be so sick of them all by the time I list them!!!)

Have a beautiful Wednesday dear friends and maybe....just MAYBE...
you won't have to see much more of this pile of stuff!!

hugs and love,

It is good you didn't stick to only 'one' of these pretty sachets.
They are all so very unique, I know exactly how you feel when something goes well, you just can not stop...

You just take your time, these are GORGEOUS. I've rushed through projects and it wasn't good. All good things are worth waiting for.

Totally adorable! Can completely understand what happens when you start a project thinking that it will be simple... and then it becomes much more.

These are so darling!

Love watching works in progress - lovely linens and things. And, you're probably smart to do them in bulk - so nice - I'm sure you'll find your market for them in no time!

I will never get sick of seeing your needlework and reading your blog! You are always refreshing and inspiring.

Clara is a cutie and worth sharing more than you do. Never say we are tired of your work!

I should post more to my own blog and comment on on yours, but I do enjoy reading your posts and seeing your email almost every day that you have posted some of your life and shared with us what you are busy making.

I am so behind as I could not get moved nearly as fast as you did a year ago! I am still unpacking and making my craft room what I wish it to be i my unfinished attic.

I love when you show photos of how you have made your spare room your crafting space with us.

You keep inspiring me! I do LOVE the OWL linen you found.

Smiles, Cyndi
