A couple days ago, I got an email, and here is some of what it read:
"I would like to be a secret santa in tatland as a way of saying thanks to all those folks out there who so generously share their expertise and talent and patterns and good humor. So this is what I propose... I would like to buy 12 skeins of your lovely thread and I would like you to give it away to other tatters. I would also pay for postage. You have much more contact with tatters than I do. Perhaps you know of some tatters who might need a little cheering this season and some of your thread unexpectedly in their mailbox would be just the ticket, or you could do a giveaway on your blog dividing it up any way you like. I am to remain anonymous and have the pleasure of knowing others will have the enjoyment of tatting something lovely with your thread."
I think this so so sweet and so very generous!
So, there are about ~6 weeks until Christmas.
So, here is how we will do this:
Comment on this post to be entered into the first giveaway. I will have 6 giveaway posts, one each week. Make sure to come back next week to enter the next giveaway!
I will draw the first winner on November 16th, and will post the next giveaway also on November 16th.
So, I love this idea so much! I really wish that I could match our Secret Santa skein for a skein, however, I can't afford to, I will however, match them 1 for 2. So, each giveaway winner will receive 2 skeins.
I will in addition to the 6 giveaways, pass along 6 skeins to tatters who may need a little extra cheering this holiday season.
If you have any suggestions, I will love to the see them in my e-mailbox (jess dot d dot foster at gmail dot com)
and I will sincerely consider them.
In addition, if you yourself would like to be a secret Santa for someone else, I am up for being the silent middleman. :o)
ALSO, here's the new Pink/Orange
It turned out just peachy! (<---Pun INTENDED! lol)
Really, it's not very peach-y
It is however quite coral-ish, or salmon-y.
I show it next to the Dreamcicle from earlier.
Next to it, the one from today doesn't look orange at all does it??
UPDATE!!!! If you can not comment due to my turning off anonymous comments, please email me your entry!! I will make sure you get entered. :o)
