500th Post and a Giveaway! Now Closed

This is my 500th post!

I can't believe it.   I had no idea I would ever get this far and have so much fun doing it.   I have so many upcoming things to share with you that I am bursting at the seams!

A giveaway is definitely in order.   To celebrate I am giving away 4 fat quarters of my hand dyed fabric.





All you have to do is be a follower of mine and tell me your favourite color.  So when I pick the winner, you will get colors that you like.   

I will draw a winner next Friday October 21, 2011

I have to admit, and I'm still sometimes embarrassed by this, that my favourite colour is pink. It used to red... does that mean I've faded???

Your hand dyed fabric is gorgeous. I'd love to give it a try one day. Congratulations on 500 posts! That took some commitment and as a follower we apprecite it. It's a hard choice but I think I've narrowed it down. In the third picture down you posted I'd like the four from the left to the right. The gray ?, deep blue, deep purple and a salmon color? It's hard to tell but I like it!

Thanks for the giveaway and a chance to follow.
