Winner & Grinners

I really appreciate your comments on what colourways to print our new Spoon and Whisk fabric in. The three colourways, based on popularity will be burnt orange, red and brown. We already printed the red and brown yesterday on the hemp/organic cotton and it looks fab. I will be mixing up the burnt orange ink tomorrow to print the rest. Stay tuned.

The winner of the blog giveaway is Simone of Beach Vintage, chosen from the list of commenters using random.org. Simone will be receiving 1/2 metre of Spoon & Whisk in her colour choice. She is very creative so I am looking forward to seeing what she will do with it. Check out her blog if you haven't already. I will have more freebies for all of of my readers later this week.

Thank you again for having your open day. It was really interesting to see the printing demonstration, and even more interesting meeting you and talking with you! I cant wait to make my new cushions! And I think the fretwork is going to be a new wallet/purse for me.
