Almost Finished!

One of the projects that I worked on in Chicago and haven't finished is a heart sachet; the pattern was a free download for a time on Knit Daily and, I think, was once featured in Interweave Knits. It's a fun little project, and all I have left to do is to stuff it with lavender and sew it up. There are 3 others, too!
Eventual Sachet
We are headed off to Cannon Beach, OR, this morning, so I thought I'd include a couple of photos left over from our visit to the Botanical Gardens in Chicago. If you're ever anywhere even close, it's worth a visit to see the ever-changing exhibits.

Hey Judy! That mini-town in the garden looks to realistic, you expect to see little people come walking out of the houses! Enjoy your trip - plenty of time to stitch some penquins, perhaps! Tee! Hee! Hee! Bear Hugs! KRIS

Do you often go to Cannon Beach? My husband and I had a very romantic trip to OR before we were married and have always wanted to travel back to Cannon Beach. Where do you stay when you go?

P.S. Have fun and love your little heart.

I haven't been there for a while, but I've gotten very nice French lavender in one pound bags at Lavender Heart on Madison near 24th and across from Cafe Flora.
