Birthday Giveaway

Hi everyone as I said a couple of posts ago it was the blog's 3rd birthday and in honour I am doing a giveaway.  The giveaway will be some of the lovely threads that I have been doing over the weekend.  I have added a blue combo as well, and the pink is now variegated with yummy purple.  The giveaway will be at least one of each of my colours.  I will post a picture of the actual giveaway strands tomorrow as they are all having one more dip in the dye bath so that they are perfect.  There are 2 different weights of perle thread and each skein is approximately 20m long.


So leave a comment by 26 May and we will randomly select the lucky winner .

Any South Aussie girls interested in doing a workshop on dyeing your own threads drop me an email and I will investigate the possibility of running a class.

Well done on three years of blogging! I wish I lived in SA so I could attend your workshop - dyeing fabric and threads sounds like a lot of fun.

I would love to try some of your threads Amanda, I would also love to come to a dying workshop but I am 375kms away which could be a little tricky!!

gorgeous threads-especially the green

Happy "3rd Blog Birthday"!

The threads look great - if I was a little closer to SA I'd be putting my hand up for a workshop, that's for sure. I love stitching with variegated thread and I guess the only thing better is stitching with your own dyed threads.

Regards, Sue

Being a dye-ing dunce I've watched your dye-ing adventures with slight envy. I keep admitting I'm not a hand sewer but if I won some of your threads maybe I'd be motivated to learn!
