Choosing a winner is always Bittersweet.

Why is it bittersweet?  Well, because I would desperately love to be able to have just as many winner as I have entrants.
But it's always fun having these giveaways.  I loved all the entries!  I have dyed up some of the suggestions already and will hold to my agreement: If I dye up your suggestions, I will send you a skein of the colorway.

But, for the giveaway:

Congratulations go to MARTY!!!

Marty's suggestions was "Sunrise" with soft pinks and soft yellows.  I will get on that either this weekend or early next week.  I already have a "Pink Lemonade" but it is a very bright colorway. 

ALSO! If you had a "red" colorway, I broke down and bought a dark red dye.  So I will be working on those along with some others. 

Also, if you really really want your colorway to be dyed up, email me and I'll put a higher priority on it.  I realize some of the suggestions make have been put out there just because I asked for a suggestion.  With that in mind, if you really do want those colors, then I will feel more motivated to hurry up with it, if that makes any sense. 

So far I have dyed and LISTED:
Purple Pansy (suggested by Kay)
Just Jonquils (suggested by Frances)
Mother of Pearl (suggested by Bonnie)
Tiger Lily-icious (suggested by Monica)

and ones that have not been listed yet:
Kaleidoscope (suggested by Ladytats)
French Country (suggested by Texas Tatter)

and a couple of others that I haven't completely worked out the details or otherwise need major readjustments. :o)

Also, I had dyed some more Red White and Blue, earlier this week.  It's the same Red White and Blue that I did a few months ago.  

I may do another to honor the red white and blue suggestion from the giveaway. :o)


  1. Congratulations, Marty! I can hardly wait to see all these new colors!

  2. First of all: Congratulations to Marty, she is sure to make something great with her prize.

    And you did take up my suggestion! How exciting! You are so quick with the dyes, Jess! I have been meaning to do a new batch since March...

    Oh, and I must say, I know what you mean about bittersweet. I had such a hard time at my giveaway too!

  3. Oh, thank you, thank you! I've sent you a message at InTatters with my address. [Oooo, I'm sitting here rubbing my hands together -- gotta limber up the fingers!]

  4. I will absolutely buy the reds-yellow colorway when it becomes available. Also, if you get more Serendipity, I'd love another batch of that as well.

  5. How fun! How wonderful! I do love purple and pansies are my favorite flower. Would finding a pansy pattern to tat with the purple pansy floss be too obvious?

    Congrats to Marty too!


  6. Congratulations, Marty! Looking forward to seeing the new colors. Karen in OR
