|Beautiful Lavender in Full Bloom|
|Rows and Rows of Lavender in Bloom.|
|Grace picking lavender.|
|Grace with our lovely bundles of lavender that we picked.|
|Here is the objective of our crafting afternoon. Take the lavender stems and make them into a lavender wand.|
|17 stems of lavender cinched tightly with some ribbon.|
|Bending down the stems over the blooms.|
|These stems will cover the blooms with your ribbon woven through them.|
|Starting the weaving.|
|Beginning the weaving is the hardest part, I think. Once you get a few rows done, it gets easier.|
|Almost finished weaving. Just a few more rows until I have the blooms all covered.|
|This is Grace's finished wand. She did a great job making it and I think hers turned out even better than mine.|
