Sleep, Sweet Miranda

Hello Everyone
I return today with what is an unusually short post.
This is a DT post for The Stampsmith although I will admit that this is another from the vaults as the item was created as far back in December when I made it as one of the gifts sent to a friend, a lavender sachet.
It is interesting that I selected Miranda from the Julia and Friends stamp plate for the focal on the lavender sachet, after all, lavender is renowned for its properties to help induce sleep.sachetlynnemoncrieffusingthestampsmithMiranda was stamped onto TAP before transferring to canvas and then of course the fun started adding creamy white lace to the sachet and a shabby seam binding bow.
Thank You for your visit to this post, the last post for the month of February.  I wonder what March will have in store for all of us.

    Beautiful Miranda, she looks so elegant Lynne. I love the idea of the lavender sachet, maybe I should give something like that a try. Hopefully March brings us more of this lovely spring weather. Hugs Rita xxx

    She looks as if she is in a world of her own and is definitely dreamy enough to induce sleep. Beautifully made as ever Lynne. Hugs, Jenny x
