'It's ALWAYS all about YOU,isn't it? ' AND another chance in the giveaway!!

You have to blame all of this...but this one in particular....

It just sings out, 'Mothering Sunday', to you !!
Don't you just love it?

And so you sit and you make one of these little sachets.

But you know what happens! get carried away and they multiply!

You hope that your mum will like them (all 66 of them..!!)

(Ha are only joking!.... But maybe not!! ;-)

So you sit and think about more colour combinations.

You don't even want to stop for lunch!

And you wonder why they don't make such pretty fabric nowadays!
(Or do they?)

And you keep glancing at it...

because you just can't help it.

And gather it all up and arrange it in a basket...and you disappear into the land of...
make believe....

And you pretend that you are walking around the village, selling vintage fabric.

You could even invent a street cry!


But you are a teacher, for goodness sake, not a door to door salesman!

So you sit and think a bit more. You have been thinking a lot, just lately!
You decide that you will 'dabble'! You love the word 'dabble'!

You 'dabbled' before (you had a fabric shop on ebay for about 6 years, you see)..and you made it a why not dabble again?
That is what you'll do .

You will sell a few bits here, for starters :

Meanwhile, before you forget ... that giveaway!

You couldn't believe how many names you had to write, to go into your hat!

Two little Lavender sachets, made with some pretty vintage fabric and some of Sarah's Lavender...will soon be on their way to the lucky winner.


But you are distraught!

But you know that you will have to disappoint so many!

Tara! That's why you have made extra!

So you can give them all an extra chance!!

This is what you will ask your readers to do. Here goes :

Remember that street cry...walking around the village with that scrummy fabric!


The wittier the better!

Oh what fun!

You are loving this!

You will draw and announce the two winners after the weekend.

*** really will have to fly now as you have some English lessons to prepare !

The topic is 'Writing in the second person!'

And you sit and wonder...

how on earth do you do that!!!!


Oh and... you must not forget to wish everyone a fab weekend, must you?!

Wow I am the first! I am thinking about the street comment:

Lavender bags, Lavender Bags
Pop under your pillow
Then you wont turn in to a hag!

Simone said...

I've been busy with the lavender too this week! I think the best street cry I can come up with is 'come an' get 'em'!!!

Too hard for me in English :-(( lol
But in French I could say :
"De la lavande vous rêvez ?
Venez acheter ces jolis sachets, Fabriqués par Sally
Qui a toujours de bonnes idées"
Bon week-end !
