Giveaway Day! (CLOSED. Stay tuned for the winner...)

**I will choose a winner after I finish teaching this afternoon... Stay tuned! Thank you to everyone for playing!
I wasn't prepared to do this in December, but I'm ready now. Sew, mama, sew! is hosting another giveaway day. Head on over there to see ALL the other fabulous goodies you can try to win. Who among us doesn't love to get a package of wonderful, free goodness in the mail with our very own name on it?!! Here is what I am offering:

A hand-dyed, 100% silk scarf.






I dyed this with bleeding tissue paper (gold, green, and blues). The Sewing Dork sent me some a while back after she'd dyed Easter eggs with it. I was then observing a kindergarten room and saw them using the same tissue to dye scarves for Mother's Day gifts... Genious! Simple! Beautiful!

If you don't win this giveaway, head over to my tutorial and learn how to make one for yourself. But, I do hope you win. Go ahead and leave a comment. If you like what you see here, become a follower and come along on the journey. I will randomly choose a winner in the wee hours of the morning of May 21st. I will happily ship internationally.
*If you don't want to leave your email in your comment, please make sure you are following so you will know if you have won!

Best of luck to you!
