Friday finishes

Today, I'm going to our last UFO before Christmas. We are doing a lunch pot luck. I look forward to a day of relaxation which is a treat this time of year. I'm taking a basketful of hand stitching.
Yesterday, I spent the day finishing up lots of little things. I went through my box of fabric prints and stitched up a lavender sachet with this linen one. It's a screen print with one of my own designs.

Then, I sewed together and stuffed two more sachets from fabric onto which I had printed some of my artwork. I like to keep lavender in my linen closet. It makes the bedding smell so good!

This is a mug rug that I had put together a while ago. I got the binding sewn onto it.

Sewing some sparkle onto my snowflake centrepiece using Hollow Shimmer was the most fun!
Have a great weekend!

Your screen design is lovely. Do you grow lavender? As a perennial here it is iffy. Lovely work.
