Want to thank my lovely friend Debi (the one with the husband with blistered feet!) for her gorgeous lavendar bag which I love.
Only two people I actually know in real life read my blog and Debi is one of them. We met in Tescos about 3 years ago when we had both just moved to the area. We both had toddlers in supermarket trolleys and Debi asked me about playgroups. After a nervous 'first date' in Gilly's cafe we became great friends and now see each other all the time. Debi actually met my mum and dad at that first meeting in Tescos and now lives across the road from them! My mum will be thrilled with her gorgeous gift from Debi.
Continuing on a lavender theme I actually made something this week too. It was a Lavendar heat bag from this great tutorial.
Its actually really quick and easy to make. This one is great because it has little pockets inside meaning the rice doesn't all slip to one end like the shop bought one I have. The lavender was sent to me by the very kind Pomona and was collected from her garden. Check out her lovely blog. She is only buying recycled or handmade for a year and a day! oh yeah - can anyone tell me whether its ok to use rice in these heat bags? How come it doesn't cook when you warm it up in the microwave and then go all funny after a while??
