Extremely very early spring giveaway



The area of the planet where I live is currently in the dead of winter, with no signs of spring as far as I can see...but we have hope! Anyhow, here are the prizes I'm offering:

One winner will receive two skeins of my size 20 hand dyed 6 cord cotton thread in "Summer Trail" colorway;

Another winner will receive one of my original "Wondrous Window" tatted pendants;

Third winner will receive a "big and little" set of two skeins "Tigereye" hand dyed - a size 3 pearl cotton and a size 100 cordonnet.

Just leave a comment on this post to have a chance to win.
NOTE: If you have your own blog, your comment will automatically link back to you. If you don't have a blog, please leave your email address so that I'll have a way to contact you if you win.

I'll choose 3 winners on Monday, February 22, using a random number generator.

I love the bright colors that you use. Needle Necessities used to make one called Voodoo Flame. I used it to do hardanger. It looked great on black. I gave all of my pieces away so I can't even send you a sample. But it was bright flame colors. Also they had like a carnival glass looking thread. Do you have differing sizes of threads? Do you do special requests? would try it myself, but you would never believe what a mess I can make out of anything!!!(I have a friend who laughs at me because I make a bigger mess while cleaning, I don't know how I do that)

Marj said...

I would love to have a chance to win some of your hand dyed thread. I learned to tat from my Grandmother. I love your designs too. Thanks for the opportunity.

Wow, what a beautiful things you make. And what a nice colors you use. I'm a beginner in tatting. I've tried to make the carnival earrings I find on your site. I used embroidery thread (DMC), because I didn't find a nice thread in my hometown.

Would love to be a winner, especially the day before my birthday. Find it interesting to read your blog and have tatted your Arches pattern - was fast and easy. Have not gotten into HDT yet, almost hate to start. (But won't turn it down.)

Take care and keep up the good works. Robert in northern Iowa.
