Giveaway ~ Saturday Night in my Dye Pot!!!

Just about to glug in some vinegar, for my next to the last color in my basic 12 colors for the color wheel. I've been calling my palette my TX Palette, so now I need to name my blue violet and red violet colors.

Red Violets
FarmGirl Kim has a prior claim on the blue violets shown below, so she is excluded from this giveaway. If you wonder why there is a label on them called identifying mark, look at the post below this one. :) If you have already received some of my palette strips, sorry, but you too are not eligible to win. Leave a comment to let me know you'd like the hand dyed strips. The one exclusion to that will be my new follower as of last night. But the rest of you entering the giveaway need to let me know that you want the wool. Maybe you come because of my music play list. It gets lots of nice comments. But the wool is for someone who works with wool.

If you are a follower of my blog, you will automatically be given a second chance. So if you aren't already a follower, you can double your chance to win by becoming a follower. :) I'll post pictures tomorrow, but you can be thinking already of good color names that match up TX and red violet!  Y'all come back now right soon, because the giveaway will close as soon as there are 5 or more suggestions. Even if I don't choose to use your suggestion, you may win. If you are not a regular follower of my blog, you might need to leave an email address or some other way for me to contact you. Good luck!

Hi Jo, I love how your red violets turned out! They remind me of the sky when the sun sets. How did you get such a deep dark red violet? What kind of dye did you use? I just over dyed a bunch of wool I had...I am hooked on dyeing! I posted it on my blog if you want to see. I would love to win your giveaway so I'll be checking back.
Enjoy your day,

Beautiful colors, Jo! All I could think of when I saw your Red Violet was "Winedale". Am I too late to join in on the giveaway?

Only 3 entries so far, except for the automatic entry if you are a follower. So you are in the running, Lurie! I'm thinking about Leanne's Beach Sunset for their name, but still open to other possibilities!

You don't have to have the name I choose to win. RNG will select a number. :)
