Did that title get your attention? My apartment has lately become infested with a lot of tiny little flying insects. They don't do any harm as far as I can tell, but they are incredibly annoying, flying in my face while I'm trying to get ready in the morning. They just need to leave, but I wanted a non-toxic means of achieving this, since Squijum and I still have to live here.
I've read in multiple sources that bay leaves and rosemary are both good for repelling insects. I decided to put together some little sachets to give it a try.
I didn't quite manage to sew it on straight, but you can't really tell when the bag is full.
And here it is hanging on the bathroom wall, which is where the highest concentration of the bugs has been.
I hung it up last night, and this morning there were no bugs in the bathroom, so hopefully it's working.
I picked up these organza bags at Jo-Ann's yesterday when I went to get the fabrics to sew my tatted pieces for Klara onto; I had to get a larger size of bag than I had on hand in order to accommodate the joined Fandango motifs. I hope to get the pieces for Klara sewn down this afternoon, but it will be a few days till I have time to take them to the framing shop. Then I've got some more tatting I want to do, including making another sachet for the kitchen. Why do I have to go to work instead of just tatting all the time?
