New Stitchchery Project

One of

 my favorite quilting magazines is American Patchwork and Quilting.  When I see it in mailbox, I know that I can have a nice relaxing evening going through it and picking out new projects.  The problem is that I don't need to  pick out new projects, I need to finish projects that I already have started.  However, in the latest issue there was a cute stitchery pattern that I wanted to do. 
The stitchery is Sweet Sachets and is a perfect spring time project.  There were three different versions shown, so of course I automatically traced two of each one, so that gave me six new pieces to work on.  I have finished two an almost have the others complete.  They are going to be backed with 30's fabric and there is white rick rack trim.  I even have home grown Lavender to fill them with.  I had wanted to get them finished for Administrative Professionals Day, but that isn't going to happen.  I will keep a couple and give the rest to friends.
