Wayne from West Norwood Bzz Garage (we have mentioned them before ;-)) let us harvest some Lavender to use in our group.
So the week before we went to West Norwood Bus Garage which had some lovely huge sunflowers growing as well as a variety of other plants and Wayne told us what to do.
You snip the lavender near where the leaves are sprouting and only on the Lavender that has gone a little brown and the blue flowers have dried up – you then put them in a bunch with some string and hang them up to dry for the week – we then picked off (rubbed) into a bag to bring back to the Stitch group.
This is what was made from some of the Lavender that was collected 🙂
Some of the other stitchees continued with their own projects and one wanted to learn to quilt from our resident super duper quilter – Jackie 🙂
Stabbing Kittens continued…
oh dear… must stop saying that but here are two cats that got finished 🙂
