My first 'Giveaway' !

Having been following Luce's blog over at Attic 24 for a while now, i tried my crocheting skills out on making some of her little flowers & leaves, which then borrowing her idea, i turned into a lovely little brooch. I was so pleased with how it turned out that i made a few, thinking that they would make lovely gifts for big G's preschool teachers when he leaves to go to big school. (i made them using the lovely Rowan wool i brought from Kirsty at five vallys)
well, he doesn't leave till July, so i have plenty of time to make all that will be needed by then, so in the meantime i thought i would share one with one lucky reader, just leave me a comment - perhaps telling me what your favourite flowers are - if you have one!
I will leave the giveaway open for a week & pick a name out the hat next Saturday!
On another note, after my last baking disaster, i returned to a faithful cupcake recipe and enlisted big G to help with the decoration - i think you can probably guess which ones he did.
