blog giveaway

October 22, 2013

A little while ago I had a blogging milestone. I can’t remember now if it was a blogiversary or if I had reached a nice round number of followers, and I am too lazy to look it up. Whichever it was, it is time to show some appreciation to my readers. Keeping a blog is much more fun when you know that you have a larger audience than just yourself! Thank you so much to everyone who reads and especially those who comment.

Up for giveaway is a piece of 100% rayon. It has a black background with beige figures. The pattern reminds me of stylized rosebuds, but it’s abstract enough that you can probably call it waves, tribal tattoos, sand dunes, or anything you would like it to be. It is 45″ wide and two inches short of 2 1/2 yards. It has been pre-washed once.

Creases are from being folded in the stash, not a fabric flaw. They will press out.

The fabric came from Nancy’s Notions, and I think I bought it because it was a Batik Butik product. I was blinded by the brand name, because these are really not my colors. Maybe they are yours?

If you would like to have this fabric, please leave a comment on this post. I will pay postage within the continental US. If you are outside that area, we can work a deal to split the freight 50/50. Along with this deal goes a promise that next time I do a giveaway, it will be something I can ship free to anyone.

Winner will be drawn on November 1 – that’s about a week and a half off from today.

Again, thanks to every one of you for reading!

    I love that fabric. It reminds me of a length I bought at a market stall in Brasilia twenty years ago.
