1,000 Petals and *Giveaway*





Want to see an amazing shop? Visit 1,000 petals and start making your wish list!
This little boutique is an oasis of amazing color and beautiful textures. Where else can you find yarns and fiber that seem to be made of water and movement?
I have purchased some of her "Rainy Day" sock and was incredibly pleased with it! Julie's dyeing skills are quite amazing- many have a special dappled look about them, that I find lovely!
Julie also keeps a gorgeous blog, where she journals her passion for yarn and fiber and is generously peppered with her glorious photography.
We're giving away this spectacular silver button (which can also be found in Julie's shop)! Please visit 1,000 Petals and find something you like. Write about it below, and we'll draw for a name Monday. Make sure you twitter and ravelate or blog about this, and help spread the word about this shop! You'll be counted twice for your efforts!
Thank you so much, Juile for your contributions to the box thus far! You're just amazing!!
