A couple of months ago, Nancy from Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe was having a contest where she wanted people to help her come up with names for her 4 new limited edition sets... (1) Heather/Lavender shades, (2) Antique Plum shades, (3) Antique Peach shades and (4) Russet/Brown shades. For each set you suggested a name for, you received a ballot to win one of these sets.
So I decided to put on my thinking cap, and give it a whirl... what fun!! This is what I came up with: (1) Springtime Medley, (2) Sugar Plum Fairies, (3) Sun-kissed Roses, and (4) Autumn Cornucopia.
What a wonderful surprise when I read that I was one of the lucky winners!
A few weeks after the drawing, I was totally blown away when I read on Nancy's blog that she had chosen not one, but 2 of the names I had suggested for her sets... Sugar Plum Fairies and Autumn Cornucopia. What an honour!!!
I was so happy today to pick up my mail and find the gorgeous hand dyed floss that I had won.
|Antique Plum Shades a.k.a. "Sugar Plum Fairies".|
It will be neat to see what names Nancy will pick for each one of the individual skeins in the 4 sets. She has decided to pick from the remaining names that weren't chosen for the sets... what a difficult job that will be!
Now for me to decide what I will use these pretty colours for... thanks again Nancy!
