Lavender Wands

I'd never heard of these until my best friend started making them and sent me one.  Last year we planted Lavender, and due to some movement of plantings in her yard she has only a small amount this year.  So I decided to make one for her, and one for my daughter.  They are a LOT of work!  But they make a nice sachet for a sock drawer or to scent one's stationery.  I think I've made my lifetime's amount, though.  I think I'll stick with quilting!  
You start with an uneven number of Lavender fronds.  You bend the stalks down over the fronds to make a kind of cage around them.  Then you weave 1/4" ribbon through the cage.  It secures the Lavender inside the weaving and it smells really nice.  It's really fiddly, though.  Would be much better if I had young eyes.
