where did the weekend go?


Whew! That was a quick weekend ... I promised a give-away, so here goes. A couple of weeks ago, one of my friends who is a science teacher gave me the dyes left over from the kids in science camp tie-dying their T-shirts. I dyed fabric -- which is cool to do, but I wouldn't want to make a living doing it, too unpredictable.

The results are pictured above.

Since my youngest turns 7 this week, and I have 14 half-yard-ish pieces,
I thought I'd give away 7 half-yard-ishes (variety of colors).

Since I hate when there are 58 rules for give-a-ways, this one's simple --

Rules: Leave a comment on my blog by 8 p.m. (EST), Thursday.
Randomly, I'll choose one and send them out on Friday.

I've done the "dyeing" thing --- and, you are right --- it is labor intensive and you have to keep really good records, if you are trying to come up with the same colors more than once. ...so, I'm in for the chance to win, too --- and you don't have to mail them! If Thomas is 7 --- so is Emily!!!

What Linda said. and Carol. and Ruth. and Terry. Okay, so I'm not very creative, wordwise--but I'd sure like to in on the giveaway.
Miss you, Phyllis
