I would be the last person the pretend that my little blog has become the central hub of the crafting community! I'm no Amy Butler/Kaffe Fassett/Nicky Epstein type minor celebrity... Nonetheless, I do get a massive amount of enjoyment from my blog and so I decided that it is time that I gave something back to my lovely readers...

If you've been around for a while you may remember that I was gifted a big bag of floral fabric scraps? Well, I think it's only fair that I share my loot! There are 2 each of 9 different fabrics (18 in total) and I've cut them into 5 inch charm squares. Here's a little look:

And a close up:

I don't know an awful lot about these fabrics - although I believe that they were used in a UK factory in the 1970's to make dolls clothes and were removed from the premises shortly before it went out of business.

Here are the squares, all packed up with ribbon and tissue paper and ready to be sent to the lucky winner.....

Shall I put you out of your misery and let you know how you can win?

It's dead easy - all I want you to do is mention/put a link to this giveaway on your own blog and then leave me a comment here to tell me that you've done it and also to share with everyone the thing that you love most about the bloggy world. [For those of you that do not write your own blogs, a comment about what you enjoy most about blogs in general will more than suffice!]

This giveaway will remain open until 12 noon on Thursday 20th May, when a winner will be announced. [Please ensure you leave contact details!]

Best of luck

More soon
