Lavender Heart

I had a lovely day in London yesterday with a couple of my friends who I've known since we were at school.  It was a fun day involving lots of eating, drinking, chatting and catching up!

I got back fairly late, so was hoping for a nice lie-in this morning... but noooo, of course I wake up at the crack of dawn and can't get back to sleep!

So... I got up and started working on a little something for my 50 followers giveaway!  Here it is:

(Yep... I've been playing around with adding text in Picnik!)  Excuse the slightly dingy photo - getting any decent sunlight lately is tricky...

It's a lavender filled felt heart, embellished with a fabric flower, buttons and pearly pink beads.

I hope you like it, as it will be part of the 50 followers giveaway!  Only 8 followers to go - I can't believe how quickly the followers have grown in the last few days - welcome and thank you to you all!  :o)

Well, despite my early wake-up this morning, it is now 12.40 and I'm still in my pajamas and am in fact typing this in bed!  "Lazy!" I hear you cry!  Hold on, I can't be that lazy if I created that most beautiful (bigging myself up!) lavender heart this morning!  Hehe... I did actually get up and cut out all the pieces etc, then toddled back to bed to sew it.  The life of a lonely spinster woman... sewing is the most exciting activity that goes on in my bed!!!  ;o)

Right... I guess I'd better go and get showered and dressed!  I hope you're all having lovely weekends and Father's Days.  We celebrated Father's Day with my dad a week early, as my brother and sister-in-law are away this weekend, and we like to all get together for these things.

Bye for now...
