Announcing Fall into Fall - and my giveaway prize is!!


In order to have a very inclusive giveaway, I decided to give a set of three handmade lavender sachets filled with fresh lovely smelling lavender - because this gift can be packaged very small and therefore mailed very economically, I can include everyone, worldwide in this draw! So come along and join in the fun - just leave a comment on this particular post and I will include you for the draw! This is so much fun I think I will soon have a giveaway on my other blog soon too!
Because all the sachets I had for sale at the local Quilt Show and Sale last weekend sold out, the fabrics used might not be the same - and in fact perhaps you would like to choose colours - that's possible too as I am making more at the moment.
Giveaway will be drawn for at midnight my time, on October 15th - hope you win!!!

Love Lavendar Sachets, I put them inbetween my quilts that I store, put them in with my wool that I hand dye, put them in my towel drawers, etc. use lots of them so these would be a good addition.

I have a great appreciation for doing things the old-fashioned way. Living without all the new-fangled gadgets can be very uplifting. Simplicity is a lost art! I love to put lavender sachets in my drawers.

Your giveaway is great. A friend is giving away her lavender bushes but not until next year and I was already planning on making sachets with them. But I have to wait until then. SO your giveaway is just the thing for me. Thanks for the chance to win.

Wenche said...

I've just read your post from August 26. and I agree with you. I refuse to jump on the strip, jelly, cake, charm train as well. In all my 13 years as a quilter, I've been to two bag classes here in Norway and one appliqué class in the US. That's all I need :)
Well, but I wouldn't mind winning one of your gifts. What a nice smelly mail for the postman :)

oh, lavender is my favorite. Thanks for the giveaway.

Ms Muffin said...

Thanks for the giveaway. Sounds lovely!
Just a tip - you might wanna check if you are actually allowed to send lavender anywhere in the world ... I just know that I would no tbe allowed to send that in the US or Australie for example. I live in Germany. I also remember that when I lived in the US I was not allowed to send out seeds to Germany ... Maybe that is different for lavender bags ... am not sure ... Just a thought ... do not want you to get in trouble over a giveaway! :-)

And if you want to come by my blog and enter my
giveaways ... you could win
some custom-made buttons ... or a teacozy ...
Have a lovely week!
