After presenting you my Crazy quilting bag, I present you today another "oldie but goodie" : my Flower Garden knitting bag. I know you will all agree with me when I say that we never have enough quilting or knitting or whatever bag! The same for pouches... I did this one a long time ago, most probably with an orphan block : this is the way I recycled most of my leftovers.

Now about gardening : everybody gave me the same advice, so I planted my succulent cuttings straight in the earth without waiting that they root. I may have the good surprise, returning from France, to see that they have grown!

I have some other plants which miraculously developed without any care from me : the medicinal plants such as oregano, verbena, rosemary... I drink everyday infusions (herbal tea) of freshly cut leaves, adding a tea spoon of Greek honey. They are supposed to prevent various health problems. How stupid from me, until recently I was buying those teas from the supermarket when I had such plants growing wild organic in the mountain earth of my garden... this is how you behave when you were brought up as a city girl! It takes a whole life to connect yourself with nature!!

  6. Gorgeous photos Christine! I would never have guessed that you made this pretty bag a while ago - it might be an oldie but it still is a goodie and fits right in with today's quilter! Love it!
    We grow herbs too and I too often forget to go and harvest and use them. LOL - and I am a country girl born and bred.
