Garden Afternoon GIVEAWAY



Hey there, leave a comment on this post if you want a chance to win a mini set of 5 colors from the Garden Afternoon batch plus a skein of the multicolored thread - all size 20. The mini skeins are 20 yards each, and the multi is 50 yards, so the prize total is 150 yards of brilliantly colored hand dyed thread, done by me. I'll announce the lucky winner on Saturday, July 24.

Oh, and there is more in my Etsy shop, but it's going fast! When it's gone, it's gone...I dye all these myself, so naturally the supply is small, limited to how much energy and time is available.
