Lavender sachets and the LP

Christening Favors for Anna
Finally I am back from my holidays in my hometown (it’s been almost a month…but too much work to post anything!), and I have been really busy making these christening favors for my niece’s christening ceremony. I am really IN LOVE with them!

Aren’t they the cutest little houses you’ve ever seen?

Using my scraps I managed to 150 fabric houses…with the help of this amazing tutorial by Retro Mama. They are filled with polyester filling and a lot of lavender, so they are small lavender sachets.
If you don’t feel like making your own, I will soon make a listing in my Etsy Shop, for whoever would like to buy these cutties!

All photographs were taken by my lovely, adorable husband, who by the way has published his first LP. You can hear a preview of the album here:

or visit his website for more info. The LP contains of ten audio comments on ten poems of Christos Laskaris.

I really missed my blog, and I have so many things to talk to you about…but soon.

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!

Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.

these are such cute bonbonieres!! If I would have known, I could have asked you to make something cute for my son’s baptism next week 🙁

It’s ok though, if you put things in your shop, I’ll direct my friends there.

I’m familiar with Retro Mama’s tutorial and have been very tempted to make my own little houses. Adding lavender is a brilliant idea. I love your tags too, very pretty and professional – did you make them yourself?

My whole house smells amazing!!! And they say that if you have lavender in your bedroom you have a very good sleep!

Thank you Serena!
