a little shop update + a giveaway

I’m really excited about the Alaska themed play-silk sets I just listed in the shop. I had fun experimenting with dyeing techniques to make these multicolored silks. I really love the way they turned out. What do you think?

Each set comes with a sea or salmonberry colored silk, a postcard from a local artist in Cordova, and something found from our beach walks. Shells, sea glass & striped beach stones. These sets would be especially lovely to add to a nature table. They are very limited and when they’re gone, they’re gone.

Also back in the shop you’ll find spindrift quilts, urban garden post card sets, and some fabric bits.

I would love to share one of these very special play-silk sets with you! Color of choice to the winner. See the shop for details. Just leave a comment here to enter. For fun, let me know your favorite Alaska photo from the summer. (there’s a flickr set here!) I’ll draw a winner Wednesday evening. For extra good luck, I would be ever so humble & grateful if you passed along a link to this post or the shop to someone you think might enjoy it.

I’ll be back here for Mindful Monday.

Have a lovely weekend.

  13. What beautiful silks. That salmonberry is gorgeous. My favorite photo from the summer is the one of the cooking pot sitting on top of the logs with these really hot coals. I also liked the photo of the bear. πŸ™‚ We have those issues here as well.

    As for a favorite photo, that’s hard. You took so many beautiful ones. But one that really stuck with me was the view from your apartment. I remember thinking how amazing it would be to look out those windows on a daily basis . . . I’m sure it was!
