Here is the perfect gift for Valentine's Day:
This lovely silk and hand-embroidered lavender sachet was made by my friend Susan Borger, a fiber fanatic. She makes amazing things from chenille, knits like crazy, and creates these lavender sachets using vintage buttons, unusual ribbons and creative embroidery stitches.
Susan recently started a blog and an etsy shop, so her beautiful and meticulously made creations are available worldwide now! You can visit her blog here and her etsy shop here.
Susan shares a spot with Barb and me at the New York Sheep & Wool Festival each October (October 18th & 19th this year!). We are also Kaffee Klatch buddies -- we meet for coffee several times a month to discuss fiber and our families. (Susan lives on the shore of the Peconic River with her husband Dennis and their 2 children -- Archie the dachshund and Louie the chocolate lab mix.)
That reminds me -- one of my rug hooking UFOs is Susan's Christmas present . . . from Christmas 2006 -- isn't that shameful? It is a small hooked portrait of her dogs . . . Perhaps that should be the next UFO I finish . . .
