giveaway


To celebrate my handkerchief piece getting accepted for a local exhibition. And to say thank you for reading and commenting on this blog, and booking onto my workshops and courses - I've put together a little giveaway.


A bundle of madder dyed fabric. Silk and wool, plus a little yarn. Gathered from all stages of the dyeing process so lots of gorgeous orange and red shades. And I'll add a pincushion too. Re-purposed cotton fabric, hand-dyed wool blanket backing, with an old button in the middle.

I'll post this parcel anywhere in the world: to enter the draw leave a comment on this post and I'll draw a winner next Sunday (the 20th).

  1. Those peachy oranges are so pretty I could practically eat them up. I think I want a room in my house to be one of those colors some day.

  15. I would comment... if I didn't already have a lovely little bundle just like this one that you gave me a while ago. It sits looking beautiful, glowing and winking at me in my studio and I hope before too long to make it into something even more beautiful...
