Blogging Anniversary- Giveaway Time!

Well, I went and forgot that my one-year blogging anniversary was yesterday. I think I had something else going on, though (winkwink).

In just one short year, I've met and made friends with SO many of you, and learned about so many other artists I didn't even know existed. I've been blessed with your wonderful and supportive comments, your funny emails that make me giggle, and your continued interest in my work. You're all special and I want to thank each of you!
So for the next week (though noon of June 9th) if you comment on this post, you'll be entered to win one of my large, hand-dyed cotton fabrics. I promise it'll be a nice one, too, none of those failed, "Why didn't the black work and play well with the yellow??" pieces, either!

(Please, if you must post anonymously, you must send me your name and contact info in private email, otherwise, I'll have no way of sending you your prize if you win!)

Happy Blogiversary to me!

Happy Anniversary! One whole year. That's great. And I'd love to win some of your beautiful hand-dyed fabrics. However, I must disagree with the idea that there are any ugly or failed attempts. There are simply those that follow their own path! LOL!
