Okay, it is the 1st Feb, remember we said we would post what we had made or ideas for Christmas. I have a couple of photos, but will need to email them to someone to put them on here. Can one of the mods post on here and let me know please, I usually send them to Kate, but realise she is busy with the site.

Dish from the Op Shop. Plant grown from one my daugter grew at school, she is 29 now. The plant will look better at Christmas, it is looking a bit sick at the mo, but am nursing it. I will give this to d-i-l along with a Christmas Cake. D-I-L is of Dutch descent.



I will put these together with a calicl 'garden' between the flowers. Don't know who is getting this one yet



All this needs is the binding put on. Again, don't know who will get this one.

Well I'm only 19 days late with this. I wraped half in celophane bags before remembering to show you. Duh. A friend of my son's is packing away her babies clothing but not sure if they're done yet :D . she asked me to make some lavender bags to pack in with the cloths so here they are, I did Lavender bags and also Lemon Verbena bags, they have a lovely citrus scent. She's also a cat lover so I managed to find some fabric that suited also in my stash.

Wow you guys - you are doing great! I haven't made a start yet between going on holiday and packing up our holiday house and freezing produce for the winter mu days just run away with themselves. I am getting back on an even keel time wise now so I must make a start. You guys are doing so well, inspiring me to get cracking.

Kats,
I was making these past 11.30 last night, I still have Apples that need picking, the birds are having a field day. Not enough hours in the day this time of year.

Wow, those bags are real neat. Do you put anything with the lavender to make it keep. I remember years ago I was drying lavender for something and had to get something from the chemist, it was a powder, that you mixed with it and it was mean't to make the scent last.

Toni both the herbs I used are fine on their own. If you make Pot Pouri you can set it with powdered Orris Root. I read a book once that said you could also use lichen, we have it everywhere here, all over the trees even growing on the old hot wire. It only grows where the air is pure, not so much in Europe where they have acid rain.
