Extreme Spinning Art Batt Giveaway!



So last month for our love of books theme, CJ from Extreme Spinning chose to depict a children's book called "Papa get me to the moon". Inside her samples shipment was this batt-o-gorgeousness and I thought for a moment to drop it into a random box, but my partialness to the sparkles overcame me and I decided to feature it here. I hope you don't mind, CJ!

This batt is as soft as it is shiny. And lucky lucky you! We have the fortunate opportunity to participate in CJ's buy 2 get 1 sale! Buy 3 items and she will refund your third lesser item back to you! Baby is on the way, and she needs to clear out!

We're giving away this batt-o-lusciousness to a lucky commenter. Just visit eXtreme Spinning and find something you like, write about it in the comments section below and we'll be drawing for this batt later in the week. Remember we'll count your extra social networking (twitter, facebook, plurk, ravelry) as additional entries! Just let us know where you did it.

I absolutely adore CJ's stuff!! Right now I have been eyeing the "Rambouillet Wool GREEN BLUE ROSE BROWN 7.6 oz Super Soft AFTER THE RAIN Hand Dyed 21.5 micron" such a great colorway. Her batts are to dye for too! I am such an admirer :-)

Chris said...

Just look at the fuschia mulberry silk. Wow!

A. Hiscock said...

I was just sighing over her stuff this morning! I love After the Rain, and the Rambouillet Iced Pastel, and the Lincoln lambswool locks.

I like her really red mulberry silk!

gidgettm said...

I really love the pink/purple BFL. It's beautiful.

KT said...

I just got the grey correidale/bamboo/alpaca mix that she has listed. It's to die for, and I may have to buy more to make a sweater out of. I've never spun that much of any one fiber (I'm a spindler) but this stuff is truly yummy. Maybe a vest, instead of a sweater... I love CJ's stuff, her shipping is fast, and she often puts in something special too (love the soysilk, CJ, thanks!)

Oh oh oh!! Me please!!! Oh wait, this isn't the swapping threads. Sigh. I love all of CJ's stuff, but that mulberry silk in "It's Green" is really calling to me right now.

Judy said...

Extreme Spinning does the most beautiful fibers. I have a delicious blend she named sugar that spun like a dream, and her silks make me swoon. But I think would go for that purple BFL. Favorite color, favorite fiber. :)

The Rambouillet Wool in green-blue-rose-brown, the silk sampler, the custom milled roving....YUMMY!
