Hilltop Cloud Crocus Batts Giveaway!






Would you agree, that part of what makes visiting the Hilltop Cloud Etsy shop a wonderful experience is the strong sense of place you feel when you click through? I just love it when I find a shop where I can buy something from a real place, a real person, who made something with real hands.

With Hilltop Cloud there is so much to choose from, too! All of the products seem to have  cohesive earthy tones, and natural textures to them. I can see how most everything could probably be used together in a project. This is one of the beautiful things about purchasing materials from a particular artist- their sensibilities tend to shine through in their work- and I consider this a very good thing!

If you'd like to enter to win this set of beautiful "Crocus" batts, please visit Hilltop Cloud today, find something you love, and write about it in the comment section below here. We'll be counting extra social networking as entries, so get your twitter/facebook/pinterest/google+ going!

I love the Drop Spindle Kits! I've been wanting to learn how to spin, and I love that the kit comes with a few different types of fiber in coordinating colors, as well as instructions and of course, the drop spindle. Great for beginners, and the kits come in a nice variety of colors. Love!

I love the black & white Shetland gradient roving. It *does* look like a sheep's face!

Lindr said...

I was going to choose one of the hard sided spindle holders because I think those are fantastic; then I clicked through to the next page and saw the Shetland/BFL/Silk white to black gradient roving. Simply stunning! That would make such a pretty shawl....

I'm in love with the nylon sw bfl tops in Black and purple, I've been humming and ha-ing about whether to make it my next spinning project after my current one. I love the way the colours work together and can picture a number of projects I'd like to try it with.

Also the comic print spindle bag is beyond epic.
