Now I know that there' s some secret rule about when to have a giveaway, which I haven't quite figured out, so ... I'm just doing what I want - it is my blog, after all. ... and this is my 50th post, so it is a number of some significance. (to me, anyway)
This gorgeous piece of Thai silk can be yours - for the price of leaving a comment, telling me what you would make out of it. I only ask that you also be a follower (yes, a shameless plug for more followers than I already have). Comments can be left up till (and including) next Wednesday, August 17. I will then draw a name for a winner.
Details - this fabric is a little more than 3 metres long, 104 cm wide. I tried photographing in various light conditions to get the exact colour, but didn't quite succeed, so to describe - there are two colours of thread - Christmas red running lengthwise and Christmas green running crosswise. Depending on how the fabric is turned, it looks either green or red. This piece was given to me by a friend who lived in Thailand for a while. When she could no longer sew, her stash moved to my house. The story I was told, is that this piece was handwoven to order. There are a few minor imperfections of the sort that I would expect in a fabric of this type. It's weight is similar to a light-weight duppioni, though much smoother. It's beautiful - just not my colour, and I really would like for it to go to someone who will actually use it. So - please leave your comments. Oh - I will send anywhere in the world.
