On October 28th Vicki of Field Trips in Fiber announced a drawing to celebrate her 2 year Blogoversary.

…it’s time to celebrate my blogoversary by giving you the gifts!The prizes (yes, plural) are all coming from my dye studio and you get to pick! The cool thing about this year is that everyone can enter, even non-sewists, because one of the options is (of course) a tie dye shirt!

There will be FIVE winners and each winner can select from a tie-dye shirt, a set of gradient dyed fat quarters, painted fat quarters or dyed yardage (1.5). You will pick the prize, colors and design.

I’ve been reading Vicki’s blog for several months (we met through sharon b’s Take It Further Challenge, In A Minute Ago is now Pin Tangle) and am always amazed that she gets so many textile-related things done (and posted!), in spite of working and managing some health problems. So…I commented and guess what? On November 6th I won! I selected a tie-dye shirt for my new Grandson (I promise to post more about him later…)

Imagine my surprise when I saw this post last week!

These little baby clothes are for Elaine’s prize from the drawing. She has an adorable grandson with beautiful blue eyes and red-blond hair so I stuck with blues for these outfits.

Take a look! There are THREE garments! Wow!

She goes on to claim that she’s not too good at dyeing baby clothes… Ha! Right. lol.

Anyhow, thank you, thank you Vicki!
