Sewing Away

It takes me about 5 minutes to sew each of these little cotton sachet bags for a special order I'm filling. I could probably do it faster, but I make french seams, which means twice the work. I think it's worth it, though, to do a really nice job and make sure the seams stay intact. So it's going to take me about 5.5 hours just to make the little bags. Then there's the crocheting of the little flowers and leaves, stuffing with lavender and adding a bow. I'm going to be happy when all the bags are made. I'm just a little over 2/3 done now.

What a disappointment today. I just found out that the Tropical Fairy Festival, which I'd signed up for, has been cancelled.
