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!
