2 Bags Full - Grow Your Blog Party!



I am so happy to be part of 2 Bags Full - Grow Your Blog Party! I have been blogging (inconsistently!) for over 6 years! My goal is to become a regular blogger! I am interested in textiles, anything vintage and many other creative endeavors. I should have my Etsy store going very soon, so hopefully you will check back to see what I have to offer! I like to experiment with dyeing fabric so my GIVEAWAY will include my latest color sample! Please introduce yourself by leaving a comment and by joining my blog! I will choose a winner on Saturday, January 26th! Looking forward to visiting others on Grow Your Blog!

I've wanted to try my hand at dying my own fabric. I've even bought materials but just don't seem to get around it. The samples are beautiful.
