A while back I was delighted to win a blogaversary
bucket giveaway over at maya*made,
and I got to pick from several motifs,
so I asked for scissors.
The bucket catches spools, bobbins, safety pins...
whatever my current project requires.
Maya's is one of the first blogs I ever started following,
and it remains one of my favorites.
I thought it only right to send her a little treat as well,
so this morning I made some balsam sachets,
with needles from our very own trees.
I followed instructions in this lovely book,
a gift from our Stewart and his Dawn.
I added my own homemade birch bark buttons,
because I am pretty sure Maya will appreciate them.
Most of my sewing supplies are still packed away,
waiting for a rehabbed sewing studio,
and my wrist has recently been freed
from a cumbersome splint (ugh!),
so I was really, really happy to get this simple project done.
