Dawning Dreams and Giveaway!




I loved The Dawning Dreams fiber sample for October- a deep rich array of mill ends and mohair- beautiful!

There is much more to love in Dawn's shop- bamboo fiber, fluffy batts, beautiful braids and gorgeous stone whorl drop spindles. All without mentioning her incredible shawl pins and metal works! I greatly admire Dawn's eye for simple beauty.

Dawn has so generously offered up this gorgeous stone whorl drop spindle for a giveaway! One lucky commenter will be chosen on Friday! Just visit Dawning Dreams, find something you like and post about it in the comments section below. Be sure and twitter, facebook, ravelate or plurk your likes as it will net you extra entries- just let us know you did it!

Dawn, please keep creating these beauties for us to enjoy!
