the year's worth

I've been looking back through this year's posts to see what I made this year and, actually, I'm a bit (pleasantly) surprised. It's been a busy year and I felt that I hadn't really achieved much but, in fact, I think there's been quite a bit of knitting and makery going on.

I have been thinking of ways to extend the life of some of my mother's lovely old table linen. I was very nervous about cutting any of it so I started with an embroidered cloth that was beyond repair. I figured any little bit I could save would be worthwhile and so I made these lavender bags and a few buttons.

I've also started a small lavender garden of my own. I've planted five different lavenders. The one in the photo, "True blue", is my favourite. I'm hoping the lavender will attract loads of bees to the garden. It already looks good and smells wonderful.
