I finished these 2 ornaments a couple of weeks ago but just managed to get pictures today. And just for fun I'd like to give them away to one lucky blog reader. I've really been enjoying blogging this year and wanted to give back to the community.
They're about an inch and a half across, made and stuffed with reclaimed wool sweater felt. All of the thread is hand-dyed except the blue/red/green variegated thread which is vintage crocheting thread. The ribbon came from a package I ordered from a seller on etsy, so I have no idea what it is. It feels old, though.
But wait, there's more!! I also have a copy of the Handmade Nation book. (I have no affiliation with the Handmade Nation people, I bought this book, and am wanting to pass it on to someone else who wants to read it.) This is chock full of pictures and stories of people who make things. Your fingers will be twitching to go make things after you read this!
OK, so it's really easy to enter. All you have to do is post a comment on my blog and I'll draw randomly next Sunday (Dec 13th) at noon for the winner. But that's not all! You can also enter by twittering or facebooking about it, mentioning it on your blog, stopping random people on the street to tell them, etc. Just be sure to come back here and post a comment for each additional thing you did to get another entry. Got it?
Edited to add: I forgot to mention that Silver Sisters now has a facebook fan page. Become a fan and then leave a comment here for another way to enter.
