A Giveaway, just because .......

well, why not!   These are what I am giving away.

Pack A - Milford Mercer purple varieg #20 - 1 ball, 4mm purple round beads - 30gm pack, thread holders in 3 sizes, and 3 thimbles (2 - leather and 1 metal)
Pack B - Milford Mercer green #20 - 1 ball, 4mm green round beads - 30gm pack, 4 charm/fob strap, and 3 thimbles (2 leather and 1 metal)
 The threads and beads are some that I have left from the wedding project a few months back.

I read somewhere that a tatter (sorry dear Tatter, I can't remember who you are) used a piece of leather strip over her finger to stop the thread from cutting into it.  I came across the thimbles and thought it would be great for me, too.  But, I didn't realise that I have dainty fingers.  The thimbles are too big for me and they slide down to the second knuckle of my finger when I put it on, ha ha ha.  My loss will be someone else' gain.

The thread holder and the charm straps are accessories for your thread and to accessorise your tatting.

I will pick two winners in the draw, one for winner for each pack, from the comments left on this post.    You may choose which pack you like to win.  If the two winners picked both chose the same pack, then I will decide by the flip of a coin, who gets what.

The draw will be made on Tuesday September 20th.

  1. Oh how cool! Reading blogs just before I head off to bed and I see the contest. I would love to win either one of these. I'm a beginner tatter who is enamored with purple. My sister is a very accomplished tatter who is a green fanatic :-)
