Perfect gift for your favorite knitter or spinner! Amazingly aromatic certified organic lavender fills two mini natural linen squares; each has it's own little hand embroidered Ginkgo leaf that I worked in satin stitch in the Arts and Crafts style. They may be tiny(1 1/2" and 2"), but they are carefully made like the bigger ones. Each has a hemmed opening in the back so you can reuse the little sachet for years. Inside is a washed muslin pillow filled only with lavender buds. The sachet just needs to be squeezed and schmooshed every so often to reawaken the buds.

About the materials: during my ten years in business, I have saved ALL the resulting fabric scraps. I mean ALL THE SCRAPS. I just can't throw anything away, and I think the sachets are a practical way to use some of my scraps. The muslin for the interior lavender pillows was acquired from estate sales, etc., and was washed and stored. The naturally dyed silk floss is what I use for all my embroidery projects, and is hand dyed by a master dyer in the U.S. Finally, the wildly fragrant lavender is Certified Organic from the Sequim area of Washington state.

Maybe you'd like these for a Valentine's gift for someone or FOR YOURSELF! Put one in your current knitting project bag- or in a purse, pocket, next to your computer. If you'd like to hang one, let me know, and I'll attach a pretty little silk cord.

OUTSIDE THE U.S. please make sure you can receive a package with dried plant materials. You can check online with the Universal Postal Union, www.upu.int
THANKS!
