Two Giveaways!

The sign-ups for this giveaway are now closed and the winners will be announced shortly.
I spent the morning dyeing fabric! Lately, I have had such a run of good luck winning giveaways that I thought I ought to have a giveaway of my own to even things out. Up for grabs is two groups of fabric I dyed today. The colors in the photos are not true to life, these are very pretty in person!

Giveaway #1 is 28 count evenweave. The yellow fabric I'm calling Summer Sunshine and the green is Waters of Loch Ness. Each is approximately 14 x15 inches.



Giveaway #2 is 22 count aida. Summer Sunshine is 8.5 x 14 and Waters of Loch Ness is 12 x 9. This aida version of the green dye turned out most interesting of all the fabrics I dyed today, it has blue and yellow speckles mixed in.





The rules:
Leave a comment on this post only to be entered, please choose which giveaway you would like.
Post about my giveaway on your blog for an extra entry, leave another comment letting me know you advertised.
Follow my blog for an automatic extra entry.
I will close the giveaways and draw the winners on Monday, May 4th.

Good Luck!

Bronny said...

I am struck by the wonderful colour combination of the pairing of the evenweave colours - and I'd love to enter the draw for them.

Bronny said...

bronnysbits.blogspot.com has yet another link to this competition now. I think you are really clever to be able to dye your own fabric. I've never thought of doing that - it looks so difficult, but I love the results! I still love the evenweave colours best!

Hi Daffycat! We know each other through the Peacock SAL blog, but I hadn't visited this blog before today. I found it on a link on another blog...you know how it goes! I don't 'do' the following thing, but I am about to add you to my sidebar as a favourite blog to visit regularly - does that count? I see you've got my blog on your sidebard already - thank you! Don't know how you decide who wins the giveaways, but I'd be happy just to have my name in a draw for anything stitch-related!
