Blog anniversary and giveaway

Most bloggers choose a round figure like the 100 post or the actual year completed to celebrate their blog anniversary. I decided to use this funky number. This post is my 333rd post since I started blogging. Much more fun to celebrate it this way:-).
To celebrate it I have a giveaway. One of my snowdyed pieces of fabric (1/2 yard). How do you enter this giveaway? Leave a comment on this post and post about this giveaway on your blog (if you have one). This contest ends on Saturday March 6 at 12 o'clock local time. Be certain that if you are the winner, I can reach you by email. I will pick a winner at random. No matter where you live, I'll post the fabric to you.
No pictures with this post. My next one will have a picture again.

Gefeliciteerd Wil, met je 333ste blogpost. Helemaal geen raar getal trouwens, ik had een giveaway op mijn blog bij de 888ste post.

Wil,
I have really enjoyed all the pictures I have seen of snow dyed fabric. Living in southeast Texas we don't see snow much. But, I do plan to try it some day! Debbie Alley

so cool...Wish I didn't have enough snow to do my own snowdyeing but if I really got organized to do it I could snowdye many many bolts of fabric just from my tiny front yard.

Marilyn said...

Congratulations Wil. We get lots of snow here in Alberta but I haven't been able to try snow dyeing yet so I'd love to win a piece of your fabric.

As the owner of one of your works I think a companion piece of dyed fabric would be most acceptable!

Wish I had your talent & confidence for making art quilts :-)......Luv AJ

Kelly said...

Carole said...

What fun Wil... and what an imaginative number to choose.

I posted your giveaway announcement on my blog, too.

I really like your class work.

Betty Ann said...

Wil, it would be awesome to have one of your snowdyed pieces as I never expect to have enough snow here in Florida to be able to snowdye. I continue to love your work. Betty Ann

Congratulations on your 333rd post. And, what a great way to celebrate.
Living in So. Cal. I've never seen snow died fabric. I do love hand died fabric and would love to be able to play with your snow died fabric.

333 has a nice ring to it.
I'd love to win your fabric.
thanks for hosting the give away. I'll tell my friends at my blog. I'm happy to have found your blog through my friend, Margeeth.

Anita in Florida said...

Wow, what a great giveaway! I have been soooo jealous of all the snow dyed fabric I have been seeing this winter...I live in south Florida...and have NO hopes of ever doing snow dyeing. Thanks for the opportunity to win some.

Corryna Janssen said...

van harte gefeliciteerd. 333 vind ik een geweldig getal. Mijn geluksgetallen zijn 3 en 9, want 3x3 = 9. Op de één of de andere manier heb ik dat altijd een mooie vermenigvuldiging gevonden. 3 drieën zijn in mijn ogen dan ook een mooi getal.

free indeed said...

I have been reading about the dyers that are taking advantage of all this snow to do some work. Would love to win and see the result of snow dying!

I like the crystalline patterns in some of the snow-dyed fabric. I haven't starting blogging yet, but would be happy to exchange website links. - Tobi

Sherryl said...

It's generous of bloggers like you to share images of your work - and now a chance to own some of it!

Karen said...

Didn't you have a blast using snow?? I tried it and had a great time, drove my family crazy when I hauled in snow!!!

Your work is rich with character!

simone said...

van harte gefeliciteerd met dit fraaie jubileum, en raar? Nee hoor er zijn veel gekkere dingen in deze wereld.

fndlmous said...

What neat Idea, Wil! You can be sure that I'll mention it in my blog www.mousefactorydesigns.blogspot.com I, to, have been trying snow dyeing, but the crystaline shapes are so much easier to get with low water immersion dyeing, that I think I prefer it. Soft gentle shapes seem to work better with the snow. Pat F in Winnipeg

ANNA said...

I am looking at a lovely small quilt that I got in a quiltswap several years ago made by you. I have enjoyed "keeping up" with you and your work ever since.

imquilternity said...

Congratulations on reaching 333! I love the snow-dyed fabrics that so many are able to do. Fortunately for me I live in a milder climate...probably the only drawback to that is not being able to snow-dye! LOL

Rafael's Mum said...

Congratulations on your milestone! It doesn't matter which one it is, any excuse for a party! (hum... giveaway..) and it means I found you! Isn't it great to find new blogs and meet new people? I came from Imquilternity.

Jenny said...

what a gorgeous giveaway...ive never held such a treat! thanks for a chance.

Martys Fiber Musings said...

What a great prize. Can't wait to see your snow-dyed fabric. I'm going now to post about your giveaway and will add the picture as soon as you get it posted.

I love celebrations - 333rd blog post is reason enough!

Didn't have a chance to do any snow dying but did have a lot of practice shoveling. I just put your blog in my bookmarks. Looks like fun to read.

Shari said...

This is an exciting blog giveaway to me. On the Yahoo Group Stitchmap we recently tried our hand at a snow painting of fabric challenge. We did not use the frozen soda technique you speak of. Would love to know more about it. We are very happy with how some of our pieces turned out but they are nothing like yours. I would love to have one of yours for comparison and use in my needlework. I am posting this to my blog at http://ladyjspice.blogspot.com
Thanks for the opportunity.

Jeanne Turner McBrayer said...

Hi Wil,

Thanks for the give-away. I will be posting one on my blog probably today.

I love the way the African Ladies dancing quilt turned out!

Dolores said...

I wanted to take a course on snow dying but unfortunately I'm busy the day it's on. Yours are lovely. Please enter me in your giveaway. I don't have a blog so can't post it.

I love snow-dyeing - it's the only consolation to all the snow we've had this winter.
