The smell of lavender dances around my home!

Today I took delivery of a some lovely dried lavender buds, I could smell them as the postperson handed them to me, when I opened the box the aroma danced around my house and reminded me of standing in a field in Provence, which is exactly where these lavender buds were grown!   

I have always loved the smell of lavender and the little bags that can be made to hang in your bedroom or craft room, so I decided to make this sweet little bag and fill it with these beautiful buds. Each time I passed the needle through the fabric I awoke the scent inside and it was gorgeous. These piilows feel so soft and nice with this filling inside instead of using fibrefill, I can highly recommend using these buds.
 
You can get this lavender from me as a special order, please email me from my about me page.

32 count murano linen fabric, mill hill beads and DMC threads 
I used lightweight iron on interfacing on the reverse side of the linen to give the fabric 
some support.   
I will be announcing the winner of my brooch giveaway on Monday 1st August 2011 and then a few days later I will publish my third anniversary giveaway, I am hoping you like it as much as I do!
I will give you all a clue:

Ooooo la la and Paris!

Thankyou to everyone who has kindly left me a comment and become a follower, I really appreciate it!

Until next time, happy stitching!

OOoohhh, that is such a pretty bag for the lavender buds. I would like to make one too. But how do you make the bag a re-fill able one, when the smell wears off?
Thanks for your responses to my queries :)
