The 2009 lavender harvest has begun! I have made a few lavender wands already and plan to do some more. These are great to tuck into clothing drawers or simply to leave out to help freshen a room. I learned how to make these several years ago by studying instructions on the internet. Of course, one of the best sources to check out is Tipnut.
Yesterday, I cut and bundled up fresh lavender for hanging on my wooden drying rack. I am about halfway done with the harvest and plan to finish up this week.
One of the best things to do with lavender is to create fragrant sachets. Again, Tipnut is a great resource if you need ideas and instructions. The picture above shows you some of the sachets that I have been making. Remember the colorful fabric yo-yos I showcased in my May 9th post? Now you know where those yo-yos are being put to work!
Ready for the surprise part? I am having a quick giveaway for these three lavender sachets! To enter, please leave a comment on this post by Wednesday, June 17.
