Since I have been working on my SAL Spots of Fun and using many different fibers, I have discovered [and re-discovered] a few that I will definitely be making part of my regular palette. One of the re-discoveries is Glissen Gloss Color Wash silk, a "hand painted Japanese silk", as per manufacturer's description. I first used it in a Liz Turner Diehl class project at CATS a few years ago and liked it quite a lot. But then, I never saw it in stores or catalogs, so it dropped off my radar screen. Well, the Spots of Fun sampler SAL got me actively searching for a wide variety of fibers to use and, lo and behold, I found the Color Wash silks right under my very nose at 123stitch.com. I placed an order for several colors I thought would work on my sampler but you know how deceptive screen colors can be. The upshot of it all is that one of the shades I ordered, Tobacco, doesn't quite work. Rather than file it away for some future as yet undreamed of project, I'd like to share it ... just as I did the Rainbow Gallery Mandarin floss.
So anyone living in the US or Canada who wants to be considered for this small giveaway, please scroll down through the previous two posts and view the finished Halloween ornaments, use the comments section to say which one you liked best and why, and I will choose my favorite response as the winner of the silk. I'll make a decision on Sunday and put the floss in the mail on Monday.
