Dawning Dreams Spinner's Lap Cloth Giveaway!








January's Shearlock's choice award went to Dawning Dreams! By the end of this post, I think you'll realize why!

Dawn is a woman of many talents. Her February samples are patterns. A 'dark and lavender' leaf inspired by a painting. An ingenious little pattern you can use your Phat Fiber samples to create! These patterns were in a recent box of wonders I received earlier in the week.

Also in the box, (besides Shearlock) was my first installment of Dawn's fiber jewelery club. I love love this pin! Beautiful wire work, beautiful beads, and look at the packaging! The pin was cradled in hand-dyed spinnable cotton roving! I can't wait to see what my next shipment will be!

Next, was my Gorgeously Gothic SAL batts!! Oh, I'm breathless just talking about them... so soft, so sparkly and beautiful!

And now, something for one of you lucky commenters- a hand sewn Spinner's lap cloth! I really think this a wonderful idea! Basically, you lay the cloth in your lap while spinning, and it a) catches flyaway fuzz on the cloth and not your pants b) has either light or dark sides you can change to help you see your drafting zone easier c) has pockets to hold things like, add-ins, scissors, spindles, or whatever else you might need within easy reach. One of the aspects I love about them, is the fabric. Dawn didn't skimp on using high quality and beautiful quilting cottons!

We're giving away this spinner's lap cloth to a lucky commmenter- Just visit Dawning Dreams, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner on Monday, so be sure and use your social networking powers to let everyone know about Dawning Dreams. We'll count your extra twittering, facebooking, ravelating etc as extra entries- just let us know where you did it!

Dawn
, thank you for my amazing package! It made my week!

I've had some Dawning Dreams items bookmarked already: The Jade roving, the Purple Painting bulky yarn, the pretty green beaded orifice hook, the Paint Brush mohair locks... and just a couple of days ago I bookmarked a spinner lap cloth, because I thought it was a brilliant idea! I love the French Botanical print that's up now.

RTed! @owldaughter

elendir said...

The Jade roving (and the spinner's lap cloth is a great idea!)

Amy said...

Dawning Dreams extra large stitch markers look awesome.

Wow! The purple pansies mohair locks are delicious! And the spinning lap cloths are a brilliant idea... I always have to change clothes if I want to spin on my lunch hour.

EVA SB said...

I love the Blue and White Gemstone Drop Spindle.

And the lap cloth sounds so practical so more fluff or losing my scissors

nowhereslow said...

i love the orange slice batt. it's so bright and sparkly.

Knitmomma said...

Very pretty rovings, but I wish she described them more - wool doesn't tell me if it will make rug yarn, or next to face lovely scarves.

My choice would be the Blue and Grey Gemstone Drop Spindle!

InJuneau said...

I adore the spinner's lap cloths, esp. as I sit here in fleece pants that are covered in alpaca/llama fibers! The one in French BOtanical is lovely. If I don't win one, I think I'm going to have to buy one!

Kat said...

I am all excited about the Spinner Lap Clothes. This idea is pure genious. I have the Magenta Magic Roving faved until payday. Dawn's fibers are so beautiful!

tom said...

I love all of her handspuns, especially the frosty curlz.

I really like her rovings: Magenta Magic SW, Teal Tale, and Evening Carnival Bamboo. I think she does lovely work!

Kira said...

I like the Grey Mist bamboo roving (I've spun with her bamboo before and it's lovely) and the swivel shawl pin.

heather said...

I have a tough time deciding between the steel Swivel shawl pin and the hand carded batts. They are gorgeous.

Ann Ryan said...

I love the lap cloth idea! So much prettier than others I've seen. Also, the paint box mohair locks are gorgeous :)

yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

A spinner's lap cloth sounds like a really practical idea, and they look beautiful too. And the Black Fog superwash wool roving would balance the other colors in my fiber stash so well!

Kenlynn said...

Your Blue and Grey Gemstone Drop Spindle
is gorgeous and your pins are to.
