About the Giveaway ::
A while ago, I was approached by Cathy of Project Fleece in Ontario, Canada, wondering if I’d like to give some of her Spinster pins away. I told her I’d love to and after receiving them, I thought long and hard about what I wanted to do with them for a giveaway. In the end, I thought the vlog posts would be best so stay tuned there to see whether you win!
If you don’t want to wait for a pin, but would like to order one of your own, they can be found here, in Cathy’s Etsy shop! They are so super stinking cool!
As part of the giveaway, I’m including a small bundle of drumcarded nests – they are really fun to spin on both a wheel or spindle and would work up beautifully in a striped something-or-other. I hope you have fun spinning them while you are wearing your pin!
James and Norah picked the colours. Funnily enough, they ended up being the three secondary colours of the colour wheel: Orange, Purple and Green. Norah told me her favourite was purple, James said his favourite was the orange because it had red in it (there’s no true red in it but instead HOT pink and yellow, hence the more peachy colour). And my personal favourite, which has spring boarded into a new spinning project*, was the green!
*More on that later in the month!
How to be entered for one of these fun little giveaways? In the comments, tell us, Why are you proud to be a Spinster? and please indicate which colour you’d prefer if you had a choice. I will choose the first winner next Friday and their colour choice will be granted then after that it’s a bit more ‘whatever is left’. At preschool the other day, the teacher said a little rhyme that resonated with me: We get what we get, and we don’t get upset! hahaha
