Everything about lavender is appealing to me. The leaves – long and lanky. The flowers – upright and slender. And oh, best of all, the smell – subtle and clean. Here’s one of the lavender plants in my backyard:
I gave it a haircut and and harvested the flowers. Here they are drying in my basement:
In about two weeks they will be ready for me to sew lovely lavender sachets. What a beautiful and fragrant sewing project it will be!

Sewing is my passion and I always have a notion to sew, but sometimes I get distracted with other crafty endeavors. I share my creative accomplishments (and sometimes failures) here on my blog. I am a licensed Martha Pullen beginning sewing instructor and serger instructor. For 5 years, I taught new owners how to use their Bernina sewing machines at my local Bernina dealer, and for 2 years I taught serger project classes at my local Baby Lock dealer. These days, my professional time is spent retailing handmade purse and bag making supplies and patterns. I also sell a small selection of fabric as well as my handmade bags and purses.

Thanks for the kind comments. Lavender likes to grow in the West because it is hot and dry. It is hardy in zones 5-8. Might be worth a shot to try it though. My favorite types are \”Hidcote\” and \”Munstead\”.
How awesome! I wonder if I can grow lavender in my zone? I found your blog today from PR and am ashamed to admit how long I've been lurking on here. You have created an enjoyable space!
