Lavender Giveaway.

(picture from mollie makes callender)

Today's another cold, rainy, February day but yesterday the sun was shining and the birds were singing and as I went to work in the afternoon and I was thinking it would be lovely to just sit and enjoy the sunshine with a magazine to read and a nice glass of something  cool to drink.

So I got to work, and I'd just  took off my coat when our "leader" said "oh you had time owing so I put you down as having the afternoon off, sorry, didn't I tell you" "no you bloody didn't but thanks anyway" said I  and, quick as a flash, I was coming out of the newsagents with the latest "mollie makes" and a fruity drink and in no time at all I was sat at home  with the french doors open enjoying my afternoon off, lucky or what eh!!


Now onto the buisness of the giveaway, I got the pattern for this knitted house washmit from Ravelery and I thought I'd add some lavender smellies in a wash bag  to with it so that while you're having a nice long soak in the bath you could kid yourself into thinking it was a summer evening!!

I made a few other bits aswell, there's a bag made from a Parisian  fabric on the front and  backed in lavender coloured gingham that's filled with lavender from my garden last year it smells wonderful,

a lavendery brooch, a post card and gift tag and a peg of ribbon,

and there'll be some sweets too.

So to be "in it to win it" all you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I'll pick a winner out of the hat on Sunday, easy peasy!!

We've booked our summer holls so I joined weight watchers last Monday and I lost a measley 1 1/2lbs this week so please excuse me while I russle up a bit of rabbit food for tea.....again!!

Some great giveaways! I love that parisian fabric - Ive seen a cushion made from that in a shop....cant remember where.
We have booked our summer hol too, so I got out the Weight watchers book last night and wrote the points for all the things I eat! Started today and my belly is rumbling already!! Its dinners I am finding hard - want something everyone can eat and I can adapt??!! Any ideas?

Just found your lovely blog.I have joined Weight Watchers too and due to the new pointing system weight loss IS much slower...lots of people commenting on it.So I guess try to munch on as much 'free food' as poss!Off to gnaw on some carrots-hee hee..
Love the giveaway too..
Warm Wishes,

1 and a half pounds is better than putting it on though :) so well done!
I got told by some health professional, not sure if its true though, that anything more than 2lbs a week is lost muscle not actually fat.. Good luck with it!
I'd love to be included please :)
