So I had such a great comment left on my Sunday Stash post yesterday that it has compelled me to participate in Sew Mama Sew’s Giveaway Day
! When showing off some of the brown fabric pulled out of Grandma Sparkles’s Magic Suitcase (Leftovers
) I mentioned that brown gets such a bad wrap for being, well, brown. Well, Lindi, God love her, was havin’ none. of. it.*
I avoided brown like the plague until I auditioned fabrics for a particular quilt and my usual black/grey/indigo just didn’t cut it, but I needed something … like brown! Upon trying to analyse what brown I needed, I started thinking coffee, latte, mocha, chocolate, toast … then I realised brown has lots of food associations so it can’t be all bad! LOL! Then, of course, there’s donkey, bronze, nut brown, walnut, oak, beech, copper … I no longer think brown when choosing, I think along these words. So much more enticing. 🙂
Girl, you have made your point. So in honour of you, I’m giving away these marbleised mocha, latte, copper, beech, cherrywood, cinnamon, bronze, chocolate, and Tim Tam (Original!) coloured fabrics to the blogosphere. They are of various sizes, but most are at least a quarter of a yard–enough to get you in a delicious mood, or ready to find a sweaty, leather-chapped cowboy. Mmmmm.
Leave a comment below with a new positive name for brown not mentioned above, and I’ll let the random number generator (that thing really needs a sexy new name) figure out who the winner is on Friday, May 10. International visitors are more than welcome because anyone can email@example.com. Oh, and for my personal favourite comment, I’m sendin’ you somethin’ extra special!
*For those newly initiated to MolliSparkles.com, when you see successive periods like that, fully picture me z-snapping the hell out of that statement.
