Funhouse Fibers Art Batt Giveaway!


This picture does NOT do this batt justice. "Sherwood Forest" from Funhouse Fibers is a highly textural blend of locks, and sparkles and woolies and it's just mouth watering- especially for a green freak like me!

This month, our fiber sleuths Shearlock the Sheep and Sonata the Alpaca have visited sunny California and are inspecting Funhouse Fibers to see exactly how much FUN Miki puts into her fibers. Inquiring minds want to know what the fun quota *really* is!

I made a couple of quick purchases before posting this giveaway- I always feel bad about doing that, but hey, I need fiber too. *wink* We're giving away this wonderful Sherwood Forest art batt today (how I wish I could keep it!). Just visit Funhouse Fibers today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We're giving away fibery stuff every day as part of our bonanza of giveaways- check back often!

I want the licorice allsorts! Or any of the beaded kits (I really want to try beaded!) But I love the colors of the Licorice, and its also a favorite candy. My Grandmothers favorite, so I used to get lots of black licorice from her (I still do!)

As if its hard to find something I love from that store.
Right now I'm crushing on the granny smith apple beaded spinning kit. Not to mention the hair pick blending hackles. That might be my next purchase since I'm too lazy to make my own.

Joanna said...

The colors in Santa Fe panda roving are so right--my family lives there and it reminds me of the sky and the adobe buildings. I want to spin that up right now!

maggiefangmann said...

Miki has some of the most beautiful, yummy spinning stuffs! I love the cupcakes she had for March's box so much I bought them, but now I can't make myself spin them they are just so darn cute! I'm thinking decorations instead... haha.
I really, really like her Irish Stout too... yummm...

Paulette said...

I think the Beaded Cupcake spinning kits are so cute. All of Mikis fibers are so much FUN!

The Jade Palace green is great! It looks like so much fun to spin with beads added!

I love the Black Licorice merino/silk braid. Blacks that aren't quite solid like that always appeal to me. The Femme Fatale sox duo is awesome too, I would love to see some stripey socks or fingerless mitts knit from it ;)

I think Lemon Meringue Pie was my favorite sample out of the box this month, and I would LOVE to have some more. This is very odd, cause I am usually not a yellow person, but it's just so...YUMMY.
